PURPOSE: This 16-hour, two-day course trains managers and chefs to identify the food hazards and to verify that controls are effective in a retail food operation. It is designed for those who want to write HACCP recipes and learn how to establish a HACCP-based Total Quality Management (TQM) food safety program for increasingly safer employee procedures. This course meets and exceeds basic requirements for city and state food manager certification ordinances and meets the requirements of Minnesota's food manager certification program.

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THIS COURSE: While the 1901 courses are fully compatible with the FDA Food Code regulatory standards and covers government food safety requirements, it must be noted that many of the FDA standards are not validated in kitchens and may not be adequate to control the real hazards. Course materials and safety standards are based on proven operating procedures and referenced scientific publications in food science. The text is continually updated with the latest scientific data on the control of hazards in food. In cases where government information is incomplete, it provides complete technical control information to ensure safety. 1901 also provides detailed information on how to write HACCP recipes and implement HACCP-TQM self-control. This allows students to meet the national FDA recommendations for HACCP self-control certification and for the "Person In Charge" as described in the FDA Food Code.
