HACCP Level 4 Fast Track Training: Day 2
*Online Session*

1 Day SOFHT Training Academy
10 Sep

The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology is now offering Level 4 Food Safety Courses for both food manufacturers and caterers in a Fast Track format to enable busy senior managers in the food industry to secure quality training without having to leave their business for consecutive days at a time.


The Level 4 Award in HACCP for Management (CODEX Principles) (RQF) is aimed at learners who are working at management level within food manufacturing and catering environments, quality assurance staff or members of the HACCP team. This qualification would also be useful for trainers, auditors, enforcers and other food safety professionals. The objective of the qualification is to provide learners with the knowledge needed to develop, implement and evaluate CODEX-based HACCP food safety.

Unlike other Level 4 HACCP training courses where modules are taken consecutively often meaning senior staff have to be off-site for a whole week, modules in SOFHT’s five-day food HACCP course will be run one day a week over five consecutive weeks (30 guided learning hours).

Course Dates

3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th September, 1st October 2021

How is the Qualification assessed?

This qualification is assessed by a written examination that must be completed within 2.5 hours. The examination consists of 2 sections. Learners must achieve 60% in each section to be awarded an overall pass. Marks from both sections of the exam will be added together to determine the learner’s overall grade. Learners will achieve a merit with a total overall score of 70-79 (70%) and a distinction with a total overall score of 80-100 (80%).
