CLASSROOM TRAINING

Public Food Safety Training Courses

Tired of going to public training courses and leaving disappointed with the quality of training that was provided to you? Ever have “”real life” food safety and industry best practice questions that go unanswered with no direction on where to start? These were often some of my frustrations when I attended training courses in the past and this is what currently sets my training apart from other training within the industry.

As a certified FSPCA, AFDO, International HACCP Alliance and Seafood HACCP Alliance lead instructor and a “Qualified Individual” with over 20 years of experience in food safety, quality assurance and audit management within the food industry, you not only gain knowledge from approved FDA and USDA training curriculums, but you also gain the knowledge on how to apply classroom training into usable solutions and industry best practices that give you the tools to be able to make an immediate impact within your company.

Our public training courses include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Preventive Controls for Human Food (FSPCA Curriculum)
  • Intentional Adulteration – Conducting Vulnerability Assessments (FSPCA Curriculum)
  • HACCP (International HACCP Alliance Curriculum)

ON-SITE MAGNET TESTING

Magnet Validation & Verification

Is magnetic foreign material (metal) a high risk in your facility? Do you have questions about magnet strength, placement and best practices within the food industry?

Food Safety & Quality Services has partnered with D.L. Newslow & Associates as well as Active Magnetic Research (AMR), to offer on-site magnet verification and testing and will provide your company with a professional magnet validation report to help you evaluate and mitigate metal foreign material risks within your facility. Magnets wear down after constant use and over time. Magnets not fit for purpose are often used and often at insufficient strengths to protect food products from metal contamination. Don’t rely on your old magnet to keep doing the job and end up with a massive recall. Keep your standards high with the best equipment possible. Let us perform a magnet validation for you!
