The experience you already have is a very large factor in eligibility and exam results. In order to qualify for this exam, candidates must have the following qualifications:
- 3 years of practical work experience within the last 5 years. This must be in a role that is relatable with the HACCP profession, or in a profession or similar role where you can demonstrate relevant experience.
- Volunteer, research and academic practical HACCP work experience. This may count for up to 1 year of the 3-year HACCP work experience requirement.
Candidates must gather information on their various types of experience in order to complete the Work Experience Portfolio form before it is submitted for approval. This document, along with payment, will begin the registration process.
FPHRC is responsible for conducting an annual random audit of 5%-10% of all applications through which evidence of information reported by candidates is requested. Candidates will be informed if their submission may be subject to an audit.
