FaBsafe Certificate®
The FaBsafe Certificate® is a four-hour program designed to provide food and beverage manufacturers affordable and convenient basic food safety training. Our certificate-of-completion is a strategic response to the annual food safety training requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Certifications. 

FSMA requires that all persons in a food or beverage manufacturing facility (regardless of position) have documented annual food safety training. FaBsafe offers a foundation of training and an annual renewal to assist in your compliance. The FaBsafe Certificate® is affordable, accessible and reputable.

        RECEIVING A FaBSAFE CERTIFICATE®

        To be awarded a FaBsafe Certificate® of Completion or Annual Renewal, attendees/students need to achieve an 80% or better overall score on the quizzes.
         
        Upon passing the quizzes, attendees will receive a renewable and documented food safety training certificate of completion tracked by FaB. A FaBsafe Certificate® is good for one year and renewable annually for $55.
         
        NOTE: A FaBsafe Certificate® does not replace training specific to the food or beverage manufacturer you work for, but does offer a foundation of food safety training that may be applied to any food or beverage manufacturing environment.
