AIB International has announced the rollout of its HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) online course. The course is designed to provide practical, relevant instruction in an accessible, self-paced, online format, according to organizers.
“This new course includes timely, current examples, delivered on an eLearning platform, that allows participants to pace themselves, assess learning throughout the duration of the course and return to content as needed,” said Stephanie Lopez, vice president, food safety services innovation. “This course is deeply technical, yet easy to understand. Assessment and evaluation now takes place throughout the course, which is better from a learning perspective.”
The course will review the history and background of HACCP and provide an understanding of HACCP plan development including the seven principles of HACCP, prerequisite programs and forms and reports used.
The course provides hands-on, practical HACCP knowledge, more than a theoretical understanding. Graduates will be prepared to participate on a HACCP team and meet the training requirements for audits. Course participants will have 60 days to complete the course, at their own pace. Certificates of completion and Continuing Education Units are provided on successful completion of the course.
