These impacts can include product recall, injury, illness, customer complaints or decreased business profit.

      The entire course was beneficial providing a holistic understanding of HACCP.

    2. John Bushman (verified owner)

      I came in not knowing anything about HACCP and now feel confident I can not only audit and maintain our current HACCP plans we have but put together new ones for new projects.

    3. Aaron Pickford (verified owner)

      Thank you for your help & guidance through my course.

    4. Sheree Mueller (verified owner)

      In my situation, an external source set up the business HACCP plan which I have since just been following the model. This course has now provided me with understanding how the plan was constructed and how to continually maintain and improve the plan. I [also] appreciated the support you give to students with their workbooks and the helpful feedback in corrections.

    5. Thomasina Krosnoski (verified owner)

      It’s hard to know where to start I learned so much. I had heard the word HACCP in college once or twice but didn’t give it much thought, I now understand why it’s so useful.

    6. Peter Lines (verified owner)

      The instructor provided feedback very quickly and her responses were extremely helpful.
