Day and Time: 
Summer schedule coming soon
University of Arizona Campus Agricultural Center, Tucson

Federal food safety regulations for meat and poultry mandate that each manufacturer must rely on a trained individual who has received instruction in the application of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles. This two-day workshop goes beyond the basics and provides in-depth instruction to support the implementation of a preventive controls food safety system. 

Special focus will be placed on the day-to-day activities that provide documented evidence of the system’s effectiveness, including design of informative data analysis and interpretation. 

The content of this workshop is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance. Participants who successfully complete the workshop and are present for all aspects of the training workshop will receive a certificate and seal from the International HACCP Alliance, a digital badge, and a certificate of completion from University of Arizona Continuing & Professional Education.

Students will also be eligible for 1.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which may be purchased for an additional fee after successful completion of the workshop.
