Comprehensive food safety plans are imperative to protect the consumer, the brand, and the food processor’s future. HACCP is a fundamental approach to food safety required by all regulatory entities. This two-part instructor-led virtual training gives participants the knowledge to contribute in a meaningful way to the implementation of a successful Food Safety Plan.

Benefits and Learning Objectives

HACCP is a fundamentally scientific approach to food safety standards. Not everyone in a facility needs to be able to write a complete HACCP plan, and therefore go through a HACCP certification course. However, everyone in a food facility should understand the fundamental principles behind the identification of all inputs to a manufacturing process and the hazards that are likely to be introduced, increased, or controlled during the process.

Participants in this course will learn all of the components required in a comprehensive Food Safety Plan, and understand how Prerequisite Programs set the foundation for a Food Safety Plan.

Additionally, participants will learn to:

  • Familiarize oneself with listing process steps and associated inputs and outputs.
  • Know the 3 categories of foodborne hazards and relate them to their process.
  • Determine where Critical Control Points are required in the process.
  • Understand what Critical Limits are and how they are derived.
  • Recognize the importance of monitoring and record-keeping.
  • Know the difference and importance of Validation and Verification.
