Food Safety Conferences and Courses
Food Safety Auditor Training
NEHA began the month of May in Rosemont, Illinois at the Food Safety Summit. Food safety experts Trisha Wester and Bob Thrash, taught the Professional Food Safety Auditor Training - a two-day course that provided hands-on experiences about being an auditor.
In addition, the Certified in Food Safety Supplier Audits (CFSSA) Credential exam was offered after the training was complete. More than 70 participants attended the training, which is designed to strengthen and enhance the skills, knowledge, and critical thinking behaviors attributed to a qualified food safety auditor in the post-FSMA environment.
