Food Safety and GLOBALG.A.P. Certification

This NSF Africa endorsed online course provides a background to food safety, international food safety standards and GLOBALG.A.P. which is a global certification scheme supporting producers and their buyers with the implementation of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) on their farms. The course aims to improve understanding of the GLOBALG.A.P. regulations and standard dealing inter alia, with a background to food safety and GLOBALG.A.P., registration, assessment, certification, risk assessment, sanctions and changes to the standard in Version 5. It also aims to raise awareness of requirements in the Standard but DOES NOT go into the details of all the control points and compliance criteria. These are sufficiently dealt with in the Standard itself. Where the course highlights certain issues, it is because these have been identified as areas of high risk, and/or areas of common non-conformance, and/or a control point has changed its level of compliance in Version 5 of the Standard. Control points requiring a risk assessment are also highlighted. The course was co-developed with NSF Africa using their training materials and expert oversight and is fully endorsed by NSF Africa.

Global Animal Wellness Standard for Auditors

This online course will take approximately 3.5 hours to complete. You can start, stop, and pause at any time, progressing through the course at your own pace. To help companies manage their risk through a single certification, NSF’s Global Animal Wellness Standards (GAWS) were created. The standards apply to beef cattle, dairy cattle, pigs, small ruminants, meat poultry and egg-laying poultry. The standards provide a tool to determine that the key elements of an animal welfare management system are in place within an organization, and focus on animal welfare, animal health, feeding, housing and husbandry. This self-directed online training course, designed for auditors and internal auditors with practical knowledge and experience within the protein supply chain, provides an overview of the five Management System Components that make up the core of the standard. Throughout the course you will have opportunities to test your understanding of the requirements. The activities have been designed to give you greater insight into the interpretation of the standard and will prepare you for the final assessment.
