This 20-hour class given over 2½ days covers information needed for writing a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan or to develop a food safety plan based on Risk-based Preventative Controls as required under the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act. Basic information for conducting a Hazard Analysis will be discussed, with recommend-ations on how to determine Critical Control Points, how to choose Critical Limits, set up Monitoring programs and implement Corrective Actions when Deviations occur. Documentation for all aspects of the HACCP program, along with monitoring of pre-requisite activities, and required Records Review procedures will be covered in this course.
Hands-on exercise sessions provide immediate utilization of lecture materials as participants work through a reassessment exercise for a model HACCP plan. Group discussions within the course allow for exchange of “best practices” advice on how to successfully implement and maintain HACCP programs during everyday production.
A written exam at the end of the course offers an evaluation of how well participants understand the material. Examples of other testing formats will also be presented, for workplace use in HACCP and prerequisite program trainings, which will be needed for companies seeking SQF or similar certification. Participants receive the referenced textbook and handouts with forms and examples for producing their company-specific HACCP plans.
Class attendees who are present for the entire 20 hours of the workshop will receive a certificate of attendance. Those passing the written exam will have that noted on their certificate, to satisfy specific audit requirements.
