HACCP Manager Training Workshop

Sorry, registrations are closed on this workshop.

Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin announces a regional workshop entitled "HACCP Manager Training".  Jim Van Ells from NSF Center for Public Health Education will provide the technical training for the workshop.

HACCP Manager Training is a two-day workshop that provides instruction in:

  • The five preliminary steps and seven principles of HACCP
  • The importance of effective prerequisite programs
  • Methods for developing and implementing a HACCP Plan in the food processing distribution and preparation environments

This HACCP Manager Training Course is a combination of lecture and interactive group exercises which provides participants with step-by-step instruction in preparing a written HACCP Plan. Participants will leave this course with a completed HACCP plan model along with HACCP tools and templates they can utilize in the work place. The course is structured to promote interaction among class members and allows time for questions and review.

This two-day course is one of the four workshops leading to the ANSI accredited NSF Food Safety Certificate Program. The other workshops include Prerequisite Programs for Food Safety Systems, Advanced HACCP – Verification and Validation, and Principles of Internal Auditing.
