This qualification targets those working in technical and supervisory roles covering product development, food safety and quality, food production and distribution, environmental functions, and the maintenance and monitoring of food processing systems. The job roles require specialist technical skills and knowledge in food science and technology to complete routine and non-routine tasks and functions, and workers have responsibility for their own functions and outputs, along with limited responsibility for the output of others.
This qualification offers an optional specialisation in Food Safety Auditing. Users interested in this option must refer to relevant state, territory and Commonwealth food safety legislation and the National Regulatory Food Safety Auditor Guideline and Policy for details of auditing requirements in low, medium and high-risk settings, and to understand the food safety auditing work context.
Legislative and regulatory requirements apply to food safety and are enforced through state/territory jurisdictions. Users must check with the relevant regulatory authority before delivery.
