Upon completion of this training, participants will be:


  • Identifying and review food safety hazards
  • Able to establish and review methods to monitor and control food safety hazards
  • Able to prepare to develop and review a food safety program
  • Describing the scope of a food safety plan
  • Constructing flow diagrams
  • Analysing potential hazards and considering control measures
  • Determining Critical Control Points (CCP) and critical limits for each

How will I be assessed?

To complete this course your competence will be assessed in three (3) stages:

1. Course Workbook

At the time in which you register for your training course you will be issued with your course workbook and learning resources. This may be issued in hardcopy when you arrive at the training. It must be filled out by you the Trainee, with hand written answers. It must be completed during your three (3) day workshop. You will be asked to submit this at the completion of the training.

2. Practical Assessment

During your time at the face-to-face training you will be required to complete a Practical assessment of your ability to work within a group (HACCP Team). During this time you will be required to study and interepret a step by step production process for a specific food product.

During this process you will be required to:

  • Develop a production flow chart (with symbols)
  • Identify hazards within the production flow chart
  • Complete a Hazard Identification Chart
  • Identify any Critical Control Points (CCP’s)
  • Record any Critical Limits with reference
  • Record Control measures used
  • Record any monitoring procedures required
  • Record HACCP records required
  • Record any corrective action procedures required
  • Answer questions relating to product production

During the course you will be individually required to complete and submit the required evidence
to your trainer. You will be provided with feedback and the opportunity to make adjustments
where required.

3. Post-course Assessment

Upon returning to your workplace you will be required to develop a HACCP based food safety plan for your workplace. You will have eight (8) weeks to complete this assessement.

This will include:

  • Complete the 5 HACCP Preliminary steps to commence the development of a food safety plan, using the standard symbols and nomenclature to describe the processes and steps in the operation as a flow diagram and validate the flow diagram against the operation at all stages of production
  • Complete the development of the food safety plan with the HACCP principles using the CCP Decision tree provided
  • With implementation of the food safety plan, design and provide examples of the documentation and monitoring records to meet the HACCP-based standard requirements
  • Your supervisor or an industry professional must review and/or sign off on your food safety program and implementation. Please note, your assessor may contact your workplace to
    confirm the authenticity of the documentation provided.
