Our training model:
Our small classes foster group discussion and allow the use of practical examples based upon class composition to illustrate complex SQF Code implementation.
Larger public training venues restrict learning because they inhibit group interaction and the dynamic learning process so critical to adults.
Trainers from many larger centers lack direct, hand's on experience with food processing and SQF audits that is essential when interpreting the requirements of the SQF Code.
On-line training for SQF Practitioners is primarily an exercise in reading slides; there is no way to receive feedback for your questions and no discussion of documentation design or implementation critical to passing the initial SQF certification audit.
