STC HACCP & Food Safety
Advanced Level 4 Course
CPD Accredited

This combined HACCP and Food Safety Advanced Level 4 course will give you a 2 in 1 qualification that is unique to STC. Other training providers only provide these as separate qualifications, however STC has challenged this practice since “you can’t know HACCP without food safety, and you can’t know food safety without HACCP!”.

We are very proud to offer this accredited qualification to those involved with any and all aspects in a food business relating to HACCP & Food Safety.

Holders of the qualification will have the knowledge necessary to be an integral part of a food business as well as part of Technical & Quality departments and HACCP team members, team leaders, consultants or trainers. The qualification is also suitable for those working in related industries, such as packaging, storage & distribution.

The qualification is also relevant to those owning/managing smaller food businesses to give them the underpinning knowledge to develop a HACCP study and understand the fundamentals of food safety.

It is a good idea for attendees to already have knowledge of food safety hazards and controls, however this course will provide the required advanced level of knowledge and understanding.

HACCP and food safety training is regarded by the Foods Standards Agency as being important to maintaining good practice in the production of safe food.

This course has been accredited by the CPD Standards Office for delivery, structure and content.
