FaBsafe Certificate®

FaBsafe Certificate® training is also
now available to your employees in-house.
 



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 documented 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 food safety training. Individuals must receive training in the principles of food hygiene and food safety, including the importance of employee health and hygiene, at an appropriate frequency (annually or more often) depending on the food facility and the individual’s assigned duties. 

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.
