New regulations, new products, microbiological concerns, and customer demands challenge facility personnel to remain current and informed on their responsibilities of food safety and sanitation. Our experts will teach you how sanitation, pest management, and other key prerequisite programs impact your ability to meet food safety expectations and produce safe food products. This will support your development and management of critical food plant programs that allow you to produce safe, legal food products and meet your customers’ food safety expectations. And because this is a distance learning course, you can do all of your training on your own time.

Following this training, you will be prepared to:

  • Develop a strategy to control common stored-product insects, rodents, and bird pests
  • Select the proper cleaning compound, sanitizing material, and methods of use for food processing equipment
