My training objectives for this year include obtaining a CHA certification. However, I am nearing the end of the CQA training and will be ready to take the exam soon. I hold HACCP certification from NSF, and a PCQI as well so I have the HACCP piece covered for CHA. The CQA training will cover the auditing piece of the CHA certification.
My question is this: Is there any benefit to having both CHA and CQA certifications? The CQA training seems much more extensive from a quality perspective and would likely suffice for our purposes, and I already have enough knowledge and experience with HACCP to run our current food safety program. Perhaps there is some other benefit I have not considered. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for your attention!
