LUBBOCK, Texas (Dec. 3, 2015) – As organizations develop and change food safety and sanitation regulations, individuals with deep knowledge and understanding of food safety are needed to implement these new standards and processes. To maintain a high set of safety standards and meet the rising demand for professionals with food safety training, CEV Multimedia has partnered with the American Meat Science Association (AMSA) on a certification that helps high school students prepare for college and a career in the food industry.
The Food Safety & Science Certification provides students with an in-depth knowledge of food industry standards and procedures to ensure food safety for consumers. The certification addresses major concepts such as the principles of HACCP, food sanitation procedures, food handling and storage guidelines and basic food microbiology. To earn the certification, students complete 18 modules and take a 100-question final exam.
“Our partnership with CEV Multimedia is a strategic part of the American Meat Science Association’s efforts to recruit and equip the next-generation of meat scientists,” said Thomas Powell, Ph.D., CAE, Executive Director of AMSA. “Our member scientists have worked closely with CEV Multimedia to ensure high quality, accurate, science-based training materials for the food safety certification.“
Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructors and students can access valuable information and certifications through iCEV, an online platform offering practical interactive learning with professional demonstrations to prepare students for postsecondary education in high-demand and highly skilled careers.
