Training and Certification


Training and Certification

The Training and Certification workgroup’s goal is to help develop standard curricula and certification programs that will promote consistency and competency among the IFSS workforce.

In partnership with FDA’s Office of Training Education and Development (OTED) and the International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI), this workgroup is developing a National Curriculum Standard (NCS) for regulatory enforcement professionals. Multiple frameworks have been created representing retail and manufactured food, animal food, and laboratory competencies needed by regulatory professionals to fulfill the duties and tasks of their job. Establishing a NCS gets us one step closer to a competent workforce doing comparable work across all strategic partners.
