  1. Implementing or operating a management system within a food sector context. This includes private schemes such as FSSC, GLOBALGAP, BRC and/or other schemes which include management system components.
  2. Relevant key food safety legislation (this may be specific to students’ food industry context and location).
  3. Knowledge of prerequisite programmes as specified in ISO/TS 22002-1.
  4. Good Practice guides for Agriculture (GAP), Veterinary (GVP), Manufacturing (GMP), Hygiene (GHP), Production (GPP), Distribution (GDP) and/or Trading (GTP) depending on the segment of the food chain in which the student operates.
  5. The principles of HACCP as defined by the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

ISO 22000

Knowledge of the requirements of ISO 22000 or acceptable equivalent, which may be gained by completing an IRCA certified FSSC Foundation Training course or equivalent.

Additionally, each Learner will be required to have their own copy of all ISO+FSSC 22000 standards for use during the training

Course Assessment

There is a written auditor examination at the end of the class. The written auditor examination is based on FSSC, or ISO 22000.

The minimum pass rate for the written auditor examination is 70%.

Our Course vs. Our Competitors Why is our course the best? Just some examples explained of how our course goes further

Working with a Case Study: Almost Full Documented FSMS Why is this important?

Each Learner will audit the almost full documented FSMS from the unique Kelmac Group® assurance perspective. The Kelmac Group® assurance perspective is unique as we audit like many professional financial audit practices where the focus is on providing top management with the quality of insight to make decisions and actions aimed at improving performance of the organization. 

We boast the most comprehensive documented FSMS Case Study available including an ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Policy Manual; 13 SIPOC processes [Value chain, Support and Management]; 19 procedures; Dairy – Milk Processing  HACCP System and related documented templates and records.

One System Model Why is this important?

The one system model is based on utilizing Business Process Management to enhance ISO based Management Systems.

Our course is unlike our competitors as we will outline a methodology for developing and implementing an Food Safety Management System based upon the requirements of ISO 22000:2018, where the FSMS is integrated with the organization’s business model. 

Others train followers, we train leaders™


More Topics Covered In More Depth Why is this important?

In this course, we cover 14 topics in more depth than any of our competitors!

If you look at other courses, they are largely focused on knowledge based learning which does not cover all requirements of FSSC 22000.
