Food Safety Training Returns This Fall

We are excited to announce that our popular Basic Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety training is back this fall!

Why Get HACCP Certification?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 1 in 6 Americans gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases each year.

HACCP is an internationally recognized system to identify and manage food safety-related risk.

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 HACCP principles. Those trained individuals must perform a periodic reassessment of the ongoing adequacy of the HACCP plan.

The Basic HACCP course directly fulfills these regulatory expectations, as well as provides additional practical and technical instruction to assist food manufacturers in producing safe product.

This course is appropriate for anyone wanting to better understand HACCP, especially individuals who either are working or want to work in any aspect of food production, distribution, or preparation.
