HACCP Training for Processors


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

Course Overview

HACCP Training for Processors is a two-day course. This IACET and International HACCP Alliance accredited training program is designed to provide you a thorough understanding of the concepts and application of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) method for assessing, identifying and controlling hazards. In this course, you will gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to apply the Codex 12 steps to HACCP to develop, implement and maintain a HACCP-based food safety management system.

This 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.
