CLASS WILL BE TAUGHT IN ENGLISH.
This 8-hour class given over 2 four-hour days covers information needed for earning the Intentional Adulteration – Vulnerability Assessments Qualified Individual certificate. The class will run 9am – 1pm each day.
The Nuts & Bolts of the Course
On Day ONE, information regarding “Intentional Adulteration – Vulnerability Assessments” (IA-VA), chapters 1 – 4 will be covered, including Hands-on exercise sessions to provide immediate utilization of lecture materials as participants work through model Food Defense exercises. Group discussions in the course allow for exchange of “best practices” advice on successful implementation and maintenance of Food Defense Plans during everyday production. On Day TWO, IA-VA chapters 5 – 8 will be covered, and there will be a written exam at the end of the course to evaluate how well participants understand the material.
*Passing the test is required for earning a certificate. Participants will receive a pdf version of the IA-VA textbook via email and e-handouts with forms and examples deciding which method of Vulnerability Assessment is better for use within their company setting.
*Note: If your company produces FDA-regulated products, you should attend this course before completing your Food Defense Plan.
