Others who have an interest in ensuring that the requirements of the FSVP rule are met, including brokers, exporters, foreign suppliers of food that will be exported to the U.S., persons/business owners who currently buy food from foreign sources, and representatives of foreign governments.Learning this course will enable you to understand the requirements of the FSVP rule and how these requirements can be met. It will also help you to become a Qualified Individual under this rule.

I took this course as someone new to the Food Safety Field. The pace and breakdown of the FSVP requirements as done by the class was done well enough where someone of my limited background was able to follow along and understand. The instructors took time to make sure that our questions were answered and never rushed through a topic.

This course was perfect to assist me in my new role at my current employer.

This course was an effective way to learn the requirements for managing Foreign Supplier Verification Programs. The instructor did a wonderful job of both guiding and pushing us to learn and experience the materials. I feel confident that I will be able to fulfill the role as a Qualified Individual for FSVP after completing this course.
