Our facilitators speak Afrikaans, English, Sepedi, Zulu and Xitsonga Sotho.

Whilst providing a practical approach using workplace examples and case studies to ensure a thorough understanding of hygiene and food safety practices, the programme focuses on why the daily application of these practices is important and how these should be applied. 

This qualification will contribute to increasing levels of personal and product safety and will develop a common integrated and co-ordinated approach to the handling of food and related products as well as critical life skills beyond the boundaries of work.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE PACKAGING (NQF 3)

SAQA Registered Qualification ID 57694

National Certificate:
Food and Beverage Packaging Operations

  • We all know that RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) is intended to redress past injustices. However, since the inception of the term as an NQF principle, it has been largely uncharted territory particularly within the SETA landscape. CPC in conjunction with FoodBev successfully piloted a fresh approach to RPL based on the QCTO Policy and Procedure rather than the cumbersome procedures implemented by SETA in the past.

  • Here is your opportunity to reward and recognise your loyal permanent Packaging Operators who typically coach and upskill endless intakes of unemployed youth with nothing to show for it themselves!

  • CPC has a fully endorsed Packaging RPL process based on a minimalistic approach from a time, process and cost point of view.
