Normally Course study includes a 5 day full time IRCA approved/ Global Registered FSMS course of 40 hours duration Which included various FSMS Principles,topics like Management Systems,Interactive Communications,PRP's,HACCP,etc

Also if you want to become Auditor you should have
Educational Qualification,Food Industry experience and Auditing experience.

So you calculate interactive time spent on line on various topics as above like
Time spent on HACCP ( 16 hours),Management System,Interactive Communications ( Internal and External), Documentation ,Auditing of FSMS,Principles of Auditing ISO 19011:2011,etc

Also to become Certified Auditor you dhould have
practical Auditing experience under trained
Food Safety Auditor.

Good Morning,


I am a CFSQA (though when i first passed the Certified HACCP Auditor). The exam itself offers no hours; the course is listed as 35.02 hours in length if you take their self paced (self study) course. The exam is a demonstration of mastery of food safety auditing...if you passed, congratulations, you are truly competent as a food safety auditor. If you took the online class you can present those hours.
