Melbourne course 2021: Certified Food Service Professional (CFSP) - Updated professional qualification dedicated to the foodservice industry | Thursday, 18. March 2021

CFSP accreditation – Updated professional qualification dedicated to the foodservice industry.

On behalf of the industry, National Association of Food Equipment Suppliers (NAFES) will be running an updated professional qualification dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand foodservice industry - Certified Food Service Professional (CFSP)

It is a 2 day comprehensive programme that covers all key aspects of the sector. There will be a 3 hour closed book exam on day 2. Prior to the exam there will be a revision session conducted by the presenter Doug Fryett.

CFSP is an internationally recognised and promoted course. In Europe it operates in UK, Sweden and Austria, with further development and translation work underway. The programme is also run in Mexico, Singapore, Sweden & USA.

Who should attend?

The qualification is particularly aimed at improving the knowledge & expertise of individuals working in sales, purchasing and service within manufacturers, distributors, dealers & wholesalers involved in the supply of foodservice/hospitality related products & services.

The key purpose of the qualification is to help train and develop staff, raise industry recognition and respect, help employees to carry out their job more effectively, increase confidence with customers and provide personal satisfaction and achievement.

Who is the presenter?

The course will be presented by Doug Fryett. Doug is an international speaker and his first book published, “An Introduction to the Food Service Industry,” is used as the basis for NAFEM’s (NAFES counterpart in North America) CFSP program and seminar which he developed. Doug presents the CFSP course internationally.

Doug is recognised as an international expert in the foodservice industry and it is fantastic for the Australian and New Zealand foodservice industry to have Doug presenting the NEW CFSP Program.
