FSSC 22000 (ver. 5) – Implementation and Awareness

This 20 hour interactive course provides an excellent foundation for understanding the requirements for implementation, maintenance and sustainability of a compliant and effective FSSC 22000 food safety management system. It is applicable to either implementing or maintaining a system compliant with an approved GFSI food safety Certified Program Owner (CPO, formerly known as schemes).
