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.

What Does HACCP Training Include?

The HACCP system meets the requirements of the Codex Alimentarius Commission established by the FAO and WHO to set codes of practice and internationally recognized standards pertaining to food, food production and food safety. The commission’s main goals are to protect the health of consumers and ensure fair practices in the international food trade. 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.

Among the topics covered by our accredited HACCP certification classes in Chicago and Online are:

  • Identifying potential food safety hazards in ingredients and process steps
