    Managing food safety risks in a food service setting has never been more important.  With foodborne illness outbreaks occurring weekly in the United States, retail operations need to protect their liability and livelihood by implementing food safety management plans using the preventative principles of HACCP for Retail Food Operations.  Many jurisdictions require HACCP plans in place when foodservice operations do special processes such as sous vide, cook/chill and vacuum sealing.  The HACCP Manager Certification Course is designed for NEHA trainers, students and foodservice professionals working in retail food operations.  It is also an excellent body of knowledge for any Food Safety professional and should be seen as an important supplement to your existing training. 

    This course will provide participants with the information necessary to implement an effective and dynamic food safety management system in a retail foodservice operation.  The course will teach students how to identify, assess and reduce or eliminate food safety risks by utilizing the Process Approach to HACCP.  Students will take a nationally recognized HACCP Manager Certification Exam at the end of the course.  Cost is $249 for members and $299 for non-members.  Pre-requisite: minimum of CPFM certification recommended.  Limit 50 people.
