Are you looking to become a certified HACCP auditor? If so, you've come to the right place. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to know about the process of becoming a HACCP auditor. The first step in becoming a HACCP auditor is to gain years of work experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified Food Safety and Quality Auditor's Body of Knowledge. This experience should include knowledge of food safety, quality assurance, and food processing.
The next step is to take the CFSQA exam. This exam is a one-part exam, 135 multiple-choice questions, four hours long and is only offered in English. You can take the exam either as a Computer-Based Test (CBT) or as a Traditional Classroom Course (TCC). If you take the CBT exam, you will get your result immediately after taking the test.
Within 3 to 5 business days, you will receive an email confirming the result. ASQ will also send you a separate email with details on how to request your digital certificate and your credential through the Accredible platform. If you don't pass the TCC exam, you will receive a summary of your performance by email within 3 to 5 business days from the initial exam. For 2 years from your previous attempt, you can submit your application with a significantly reduced repetition rate.

The final step in becoming a HACCP auditor is to successfully pass an external certification audit, provided by a qualified food safety auditor. This audit will assess your knowledge and skills in food safety and quality assurance.
