The two day Advanced HACCP course is a Certified course through the International HACCP Alliance and focuses on the analysis of a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points Food Safety System at a site. This course helps students use effective analytical tools to take a deeper dive into their HACCP Food Safety systems to ensure they have the right hazards identified, the right critical control points established and the effective supporting programs with the right controls in place to effectively protect and prevent food safety issues.
Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to utilize analytical tools to determine if a HACCP plan has the right hazards identified and correctly presents the risks associated with the hazards identified in that plan.
  • Discover the methods used to analyze and re-assess the HACCP Plan to ensure the overall plan effectively controls the hazards identified.
  • Explore the steps in analyzing the controls for hazards to ensure they are scientifically and technically valid, the correct decision was made for critical limits and the most effective methods for verifying the HACCP system is being followed.
  • Review various internal and external audit reports to gather the data necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the HACCP system and to document modifications to the HACCP System.
