Training centers are approved by the PrimusGFS Certification Program to perform formal certificated training.
Trainer centers use approved PrimusGFS trainers.
There are two courses available:
- PrimusGFS Standard (3 days) – mandated for auditors, optional for auditees.
- PrimusGFS Auditor Training Day (1 day) – mandated for auditors.
Training center courses are targeted toward auditor training. Auditees and other interested parties’ attendance at PrimusGFS Standard training is optional; this training may help auditees understand the PrimusGFS Certification Program general regulations and auditing standard, and aid in the auditing process.
The training courses are not designed to teach food safety; rather, they are designed to explain how the Certification Program works and how the standard is applied. If food safety training is required, attendees are encouraged to seek out formal safety training on specific topics (e.g. HACCP).
Training examines all sections of the PrimusGFS standard, Food Safety Management Systems, GAP, GMP, HACCP and Preventive Controls.
Training centers can offer training in English and/or Spanish.
Training center fees are set by the training center. PrimusGFS bills the training centers directly a fee of $25/day of training/trainee that is to be certificated.
