About this Event
Basic HACCP training is for producers and processors implementing or maintaining a HACCP food safety plan.

This program is designed to provide the attendee with a working knowledge of HACCP and its supporting programs. The information will be presented by certified instructors in short, concise lectures. In addition, within small working groups, the attendees will actually develop a HACCP plan and present it to the class for discussion and critique. Upon successful completion of the course, the attendee will be registered with the International HACCP Alliance and recognized as completing a HACCP training program.

This training is 100% virtual and will take place over Zoom. A PDF of the manual will be provided, although a spiral bound hard copy of the manual can be purchased and shipped domestically, provided the request is made 7 working days before the training starts.

Training will start at 8:00 am both days, the first day will end by 5:00 pm and we will be done the second day by 2:00 pm.
