and OPTIONAL proctored Prometric HACCP Certification Exam
More than 1800 attendees have successfully completed our HACCP workshop & our Advanced HACCP classes. You receive a HACCP certificate which fulfills all USDA/FSIS & FDA regulatory requirements & GFSI requirements (including SQF Institute) for HACCP training. HACCP certificates must be renewed every 5 years.
The HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) approach ensures food safety. It requires systematic identification, evaluation, & control of food safety hazards based on a standard, the 12-step Codex Alimentarius outline.
Our workshop includes training materials, lunches, HACCP Workbook with slides, etc., exercises, and your HACCP certificate recognized by the International HACCP Alliance, SQF Institute, FDA and the USDA/FSIS.
An optional $100 HACCP Manager Certification exam was developed in conjunction with the National Environmental Health Association. This exam is recommended in order to be a HACCP Manager in larger, high risk processing facilities. This certificate is also valid for 5 years.
Who Must Have a HACCP Manager Certificate
If your job at one of the following types of food companies involves monitoring or controlling activities involving food safety, you must complete a recognized HACCP training class or workshop. It's federal law. They are:
meat, poultry, seafood or juice processor;
school food service operation;
operation that smokes food as a method to preserve it (but not to enhance flavor);
use food additives or components, such as vinegar, to preserve or alter food so it no longer requires time & temperature control for safety;
custom-processes animals or packages food using reduced-oxygen packaging (ROP) method;
treats (e.g., pasteurizes) juice on-site & packages it for later sale;
sprouts, seeds, or beans;
offers live, molluscan shellfish from a display tank.
You must complete HACCP certification training if you plan to develop or lead the development of documentation required by the Global Food Safety Initiatives (GFSI) food safety standards such as BRC & SQF.
This class is beneficial to all members of the facility HACCP team and the Preventive Controls food safety team.
The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 requires almost every company in the U.S. food supply chain to perform and validate a food safety risk assessment. The creditability to lead and conduct the validation of such plans is verified by passing the Prometric Certified HACCP Manager's Examination that we are qualified to offer.
