Workshop Overview

The risks associated with food safety management can result in consumer illnesses and fatalities. Auditing serves as a pivotal tool in mitigating and managing these risks. This course is tailored to equip delegates with comprehensive auditing skills that bring value to their organizations, whether through internal audits or certification audits. It also serves as a professional credential for those aspiring to become third-party auditors.

The course begins with a thorough review of the Standards’ requirements (such as ISO 22000, FSSC 22000 Version 6 additional requirements, and ISO/TS 22002-1). These requirements serve as audit criteria, and the course delves into methodologies for assessing compliance to identify business risks effectively.

This course is a CQI and IRCA certified training course, course PR375 (2649)

Learning is made fun & practical

Progress Excellence takes a unique approach to training in food safety, quality, health and safety, environmental and laboratory:

  • Sector specific examples are used to ensure relevance and understanding of the topic.
  • All our training modules are highly interactive with practical activities that entrench theoretical learning.
  • We provide templates and helpful implementation plans.

Our aim is to equip delegates in such a way that they can practically implement and improve their systems.

Progress Excellence Approach
