LUBBOCK, Texas (Dec. 3, 2015) – As organizations develop and change food safety and sanitation regulations, individuals with deep knowledge and understanding of food safety are needed to implement these new standards and processes. To maintain a high set of safety standards and meet the rising demand for professionals with food safety training, CEV Multimedia has partnered with the American Meat Science Association (AMSA) on a certification that helps high school students prepare for college and a career in the food industry.
The Food Safety & Science Certification provides students with an in-depth knowledge of food industry standards and procedures to ensure food safety for consumers. The certification addresses major concepts such as the principles of HACCP, food sanitation procedures, food handling and storage guidelines and basic food microbiology. To earn the certification, student complete 18 modules and take a 100-question final exam.
The Food Safety & Science Certification endorsed by American Meat Science Association provides students with an in-depth knowledge of food safety procedures and standards in the food industry.
In addition, concepts such as chemical properties and processes, food handling and storage, foodborne illnesses, and principles of HACCP are covered. The certification consists of 18 modules and a 100-question final certification exam.
Our partnership with CEV is a strategic part of the American Meat Science Association’s efforts to recruit and equip the next generation of meat scientists. Our member scientists have worked closely with CEV to ensure high quality, accurate, science based training materials for the food safety certification. ……………….Thomas Powell, Executive Director, American Meat Science Association
