The International Food Protection Institute (IFPTI) is launching a survey to determine the value for developing competency-based training services for the food industry.  We asked a group of food safety experts, representing various sectors of the food industry, for input regarding the current landscape for food safety competencies.  Using the feedback and expertise shared from that group, this survey was developed to gain more detailed feedback from a wider range of professionals in the food industry.  By participating in this 10-15 minute survey you are being asked to evaluate the importance of competencies based on your knowledge and expertise as a food safety professional.  Also, please consider the value that competency-based learning solutions (e.g. training, education) could bring to your position, team, company, and the food industry.

Please answer the questions based on your entire experience in the food industry regardless of sector.

Thank you in advance for your feedback. Understanding the need for competency-based learning solutions could not be achieved without your input and expertise.
