Justification: In order to reduce the incidence of ATS in the population, national regulations have established the need to implement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), which are defined as "the basic principles and general hygiene practices in the handling, preparation, elaboration, packaging, storage, transport and distribution of food for human consumption, in order to guarantee that the products are manufactured in adequate sanitary conditions and the risks inherent to production are reduced ”(Ministry of Health, 1997). The implementation of the GMP must be fulfilled by all the people dedicated to food handling, for which, since Decree 3075 of 1997 and Resolution 2674 of 2013, it is the chapter related to food handling personnel, the requirement of Receive annual training, with an intensity of 10 hours, in good manufacturing practices, which must be taught by individuals and / or institutions authorized by the Government to train food handlers. The CES University, as an Institution of Higher Education of high quality and committed to excellence, has suitable human personnel, an interdisciplinary team, infrastructure conditions and institutional support, to be providers of certification courses in hygiene and food handling, for what which we present the following proposal from the Faculty of Nutrition and Food Sciences.
