Program Description

This online course will take approximately 13 hours to complete. You can start, stop, and pause at any time, progressing through the course at your own pace.

The HACCP method underlies all food safety programs, including GFSI-benchmarked schemes, and is a preventive approach to food safety.

This online, self-paced HACCP training course is designed to provide learners with 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, learners 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.

What You’ll Do

  • Work through Codex HACCP form templates for a product and process
  • Work through the methodology of food safety risk assessment
  • Differentiate between critical control points (CCPs) and process controls (PCs)

This course satisfies the HACCP training requirement for the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked standards BRC, SQF, FSSC 22000, etc.
