What is HACCP Certification Training?

HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) is a management system in which food safety is addressed through identification,  analysis and control of biological, chemical and physical hazards. HACCP training educates participants about this systematic approach to hazards that can compromise food safety and teaches them how to reduce these risks to a safe level. Establishing an HACCP system is critical to your compliance with national and international legislation. Our Course is Accredited by the International HACCP Alliance and recognized by FDA, USDA and GFSI. This is 2 Day (16 hours) course offered in our Training Center in Chicagoland (Naperville, IL ), or online via Zoom.

HACCP also can be used to fulfill governmental requirements (FDA/USDA) and to support the requirements of Global Food Safety Initiative standards such as SQF, BRC, IFS or FSCC 22000.
