Hi again, SS2010.
As the SQF standard dictates:
You must provide internal auditor training for personnel who conduct internal audits. The training will cover internal audit procedures including the planning and scheduling of internal audits, preparing internal audit reports and initiating and following up on audit findings. In order to be effective internal audits should combine several information gathering techniques, including interview of personnel, review of records and observation of current conditions.
I am on the same side of the riverbank with you, SS2010: you don't HAVE to have internal audit certification but it is HIGHLY recommended that you do. But may I say, external auditors do look for that certificate of the QA Manager/Implementer.
The course you just mentioned (HACCP & SQF) would surely have cost over $1,000-? If you follow the principles of internal auditing, you should do well enough until you receive Internal Audit Training when there is more money in the Food Safety Annual Budget . SS2010, the training is as worthwhile as the HACCP training; helps to put things into better perspective and it does in fact make your life as a QA Manager/Implementer a whole lot easier.
Which state are you based in? Advancing Food Safety (haccptown.com.au) offers really good training. I like these guys because they offer more information than you pay for, are very resourceful, and very friendly.
Some questions for you:
- When will you be externally audited for your first SQF certification?
- Have you conducted the SQF training from the www.sqfi.com website?
