CFSP for Those Open for Work in the UK: Application Form
CFSP is the industry specific professional qualification for the UK foodservice industry. It is delivered by FEA, the Foodservice Equipment Association,

Due to the current level of redundancy in the hospitality industry, the FEA wishes to reach out to those who are currently unemployed and looking for work, to offer a chance to increase your knowledge of the foodservice industry as a whole.

Perhaps you are looking into a employment in a different part of the industry from where you last were or are looking to continue in the same area but want to use your free time to learn.

The programme content and benefits are relevant to manufacturers, consultants, distributors and operators. Over 600 people are now accredited in the UK.

CFSP is an internationally recognised and promoted course that is delivered locally with content relevant to the national market.

To successfully achieve the CFSP designation and the benefits that accrue, candidates must also complete an evaluation of experience which covers industry experience and activity within the market. This accrues points for a silver, gold or platinum status and accreditees can develop their profile with CFSP throughout their career.

The course, which normally costs £950 + VAT, has limited numbers, so anyone interested is encouraged to apply soon. Up for grabs are 40 places – 20 for those who worked in the foodservice supply chain and 20 for people from the foodservice operator side. This special course will have exactly the same content, benefits and cachet as the standard CFSP course and will be led by Graham Veal MBA FCIM CFSP, founder and managing partner of GCA Management.

Seminars take place from 13:00 to 17:00 on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th March and will be held via Zoom. The exam will be held on Wednesday 17th March, from 09:00 to 12:00 in the UK. The exam venue will be confirmed in the New Year.
