A Professional Credential From NEHA
Since 1937 NEHA has been leading the way for practitioners to achieve a set of defined competencies, evidenced through testing and maintained through continuing education. These benchmarks of excellence have become the gold standard in recognizing those who are uniquely equipped to handle the wide breadth of environmental health issues. NEHA’s long-standing history in credentialing means that our standards are high and that individuals with a NEHA credential have mastered a body of knowledge and acquired practical experience to perform relevant work responsibilities.
As an impartial, third-party endorsement of an individual’s professional knowledge and experience, a credential stands in support of a candidate’s resume and professional references. It serves as verification that a professional has achieved a baseline level of competency in his or her subject matter.
Stand Out in the World of Food Safety
The Food Safety Modernization Act has recast the food safety landscape adding to the arsenal of required knowledge for those involved in any aspect of the food supply chain. Competent, qualified individuals are needed to carry out the functions described in the regulations. The National Environmental Health Association’s (NEHA’s) Certified in Food Safety Supplier Audits (CFSSA) credential is a mark of distinction for more seasoned food safety professionals who will become one of the last lines of defense in the complex global food supply chain. Upon successfully passing the exam, the CFSSA credential holder will be prepared to complete 1st and 2nd party audits. They will be accomplished in understanding and planning food safety audits, conducting an audit, verifying food safety and prerequisite programs, and conducting post-audit activities. Food Safety Magazine published an article, NEHA Credential Creates a Professional Pathway for Food Safety Auditors, that outlined the work that went into creating this influential credential and you may read the article here. The CFSSA will also be one of the prerequisites for the Registered Food Safety Auditor (RFSA) credential.
