Benefits of attending
Obtain the knowledge and skills to design, implement and verify food safety management systems based upon the Codex HACCP principles. A highly interactive course, experienced tutors will provide practical guidance with much emphasis on case studies and group exercises.
The five-day level 4 course offered by Campden BRI has four days of training and two exam papers on the fifth day. As it is not an introductory level course it is only suitable for participants with an existing knowledge and understanding of HACCP.
It is a requirement that delegates have previously successfully completed an Intermediate Level (3) HACCP training course, or equivalent.
Training Course content
- National and international role for HACCP
- Prerequisite programmes
- Planning an effective HACCP system
- HACCP team leader requirements
- Practical application of the Codex HACCP principles
- Effective verification and maintenance of HACCP systems
- Effective implementation of HACCP
- Optional Advanced Level (4) exam (RSPH Level 4 Award in Managing the HACCP System). The exam can be taken either on the last day of the course or at a later date. Some individuals would prefer to reflect on the learning and the opportunity to spend more time on practice papers and will benefit from the delayed exam date. Other individuals will prefer to take the exam on the last day of the course, whilst the information is still fresh. The choice of which exam date is entirely down to the individual. The exam fee is included in the cost of the course.
At the end of the course, based upon a given scenario, delegates will be able to:
- Correctly explain the background to HACCP, including the main sources of guidance/legislation
- Correctly explain the role of the prerequisite programmes in food safety management
- Correctly explain the Codex HACCP terminology and why it is important
- Apply all of the elements of the Codex HACCP principles, including the preparatory stage
- Plan how to develop and implement HACCP into a given sector of the food industry
- Compare the different roles of validation, verification and review and explain how they can be applied to a given scenario
- Plan the development of the HACCP team
- Compare the application of the HACCP principles for a given scenario within the guidelines stated by Codex Alimentarius.
Delegate feedback (2019 and 2020)
- Very knowledgeable – could relate to industry applications. Good listeners and explained points well.
- I feel like I have a better depth of knowledge to improve our HACCP system.
- Lots of food for thought to review our own HACCP plan.
- Learnt a lot more about legislation and Codex, also about control measures, validation and verification.
- The tutors were very clear in their explanations and many examples were given to make the learning process easier and interesting.
For the second year in a row a Campden BRI HACCP Level 4 delegate has won the RSPH Hygeia HACCP Award 2019 for the highest mark achieved.
