Hi Everyone,


We are working toward SQF certification previously level 2. I am working off of code edition 8 now. It is very slow moving in my facility and we are considered low risk.


Specifically around training 2.9.7 can anyone help me out by explaining what a skills description should be in my training skills register? Also any pointer in how others have set this up would be helpful.


Currently I have my personnel listed on the left hand column of the excel spreadsheet and the SOPs listed at the top and was going to complete the date in the boxes when training was completed. At the time of training have all sign off on the SOP acknowledging their understating and capability to perform the procedure trained upon on a group training form, then the trainer and supervisor sign off as well. 




Thank you for your help.

Your set-up is exactly how we set up the training matrix forms and it works well for everyone concerned.


On the subject of "skill" set this is simply a description of what the person does -- as in:


Joe Walker - Blender 

Pete Sinclair - Mixer

Jorge Juarez - Baker

Julio Alvarez - Donut Supervisior/HACCP Coordinator

Here's an example of the set up we have in Excel.  We have it divided up by department and then the training subject on the top, with the frequency that the training is done (i.e. annual, bi-annual, etc).  Dates are put into the spots that the training was completed.  Gray means that those employees do not need to go through that training.

I'm attaching our current training roster also done in excel. We are currently working toward SQF level 2 as well (packaging). It's always nice to see comparisons.
