4-day risk optimization onboarding training – instructor led.

There is huge demand for auditors and food safety professionals and one of the biggest complaints from employers is that candidates simply aren’t
trained correctly to implement effective programs, focus on recall avoidance and protect brands. Time and money is precious, and couple that with
existing labour shortages—we have a problem to solve!

Why choose a new approach?
 Existing food safety training is clause/checklist based – not focused on techniques and tool kits.
 Gap assessments of GFSI and PCQI scheme training has identified very poor trainee feedback.
 Lack of true understanding of risks and controls leads to misdirected money and personnel.

Victor brings over 35 years of global expertise, offering leading edge, effective, learner-based training, advanced techniques, convenient tool kits, in-
novative procedure design and practical step by step, “how to do” audio-visual e-guides.
