HACCP Certification - Intro Level

This two-day introductory Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) certification training allows attendees to gain a practical understanding of pre-requisite programs, regulatory requirements and implementation of a HACCP system using a hands-on approach. This training is a foundation for FDA-regulated seafood and juice production as well as USDA regulated meat and poultry production. This training is also a great foundation for GFSI based audits. This training is approved by the International HACCP Alliance and upon successful completion of the training and assessment test, a certification will be awarded. With this HACCP training certificate and proven experience working in the food industry, the opportunity exists to receive three credits for the FPT102 course at GCC at a reduced cost with successful completion (certification) of this course and qualified prior learning experience. A passing score on an open book assessment test will ensure the attendee has proven that they have attained and comprehended the proper training. Limited enrollment: 25.
