VWA certificate on completion of the course

This 2-day course is certificated by Verner Wheelock Associates.

A documented food safety management system, including both the pre-requisite programmes and HACCP must be confirmed as being scientifically valid, prior to implementation by gathering evidence to prove that safe food products will be produced once the food safety management system is implemented. Following implementation, a food safety management system must be verified on a scheduled basis, to confirm that the system is in compliance, is effective over time and provide evidence that safe food is being produced.

This course explains the two elements of validation and verification, their importance, when they should be applied and introduces techniques to conduct both these elements in line with current guidelines, along with practical workshops.
