About Clean-in-Place CIP Training

Food Safe’s CIP cycle training is designed for people employed across the food sectors who employ CIP and SIP cleaning processes as part of their cleaning, hygiene, and GMP systems.

CIP is an effective cleaning sequence that replaces manual cleaning used in processing lines and factories, where constant proper cleaning of interior surfaces such as process equipment is of utmost importance for product safety. The automated method of this cleaning cycle means that a more concentrated acid and caustic wash cycle can be used, which reduces energy consumption and the cleaning time of processing equipment, compared to being cleaned manually with cleaning chemicals at lower temperatures.

Our training further builds operator verification skills, on-job competency awareness around chemical exposure risk, and cross contamination as well as microbiology while improving the company’s CIP systems effectiveness.

Cleaning equipment effectively is a critical part of any business. Our training course is suitable for: all operators, coordinators, team leaders, supervisors, engineers, managers, and staff interested in further developing their cleaning efficiency skills.
