What is HACCP Refresher Training?

QMS Audits’ HACCP Refresher Training course satisfies the requirements for HARPS, SQF, BRC, Coles/CFSMR, Woolworths Supplier Excellence, Global GAP and FSSC 22000.

We have purposely offered three different  HACCP Refresher training courses to support the Australian and New Zealand food industry.  

Throughout the HACCP Refresher Training, we walk through a HACCP plan, with participants discussing current issues they are facing with each of the implementation of their HACCP Plan(s). Discussions range from recent queries from audits through to discussion around implementation and how to get buy-in by directors, food handlers and operators. You can expect some lively debate as participants offer ideas and we facilitate class discussions around these issues.

Our one day HACCP training is designed to give participants time to ask questions about their individual plans. Our two hour HACCP Training which is delivered via Zoom and is instructor-led is a quick and easy way to quickly and simply refresh your HACCP knowledge. 

Our SQF Training offers a bonus HACCP refresher certificate as a reward for doing a deep dive into the SQF requirements. (At QMS Audits, we think the ones putting in the effort and working hard to improve food safety deserve to be rewarded!). 

Previous participants have come from a range of industries including logistics, meat and poultry industries, fruit and vegetables growers and FMCG manufacturers.

What is HACCP?

HACCP is a gateway system for food safety. If you can get your head around the fact that a pedestrian gate will probably only stop the dog from getting out, while a castle should stop an entire army, then you can probably get your head around HACCP.

HACCP is about identifying potential food safety and quality hazards and then deciding what type of gate you need to put in place – do I need a pedestrian gate or a castle with a moat, draw bridge, thick walls and guards with bow and arrows.We think a pedestrian gate controls for low risk hazards and is a Control Point (CP), while the Castle gate acts a Critical Control Point (CCP). If the guy controlling the drawbridge is only letting the pretty girls through – then maybe he is acting more like a Quality Control Point (QCP) and letting this pass through based on their quality!

We will teach you how to identify and analyse food safety hazards, what some of the regulations are and how to control them. Then we will teach you how to write up a HACCP Plan – we give you HACCP templates to give you a head start and you will get to write some of your HACCP Plan up in the class. We drive healthy class discussion to keep you awake and to keep it relevant.

Which HACCP Refresher suits me?

Our 2 hour HACCP refresher is designed for students who need a quick update and refresh of the principles of HACCP. We have lots of students undergo our quick 2 hour HACCP Refresher to conform with HARPS requirements. The full-day HACCP Refresher training is for students manufacturing, looking for an intensive HACCP Refresher course. Our students are often working with the larger GFSI standards, such as SQF and BRC and FSSC 22000. 

HACCP Training Class Sizes Capped at 12 people

Just like our public training courses, all of our online training courses, including HACCP, Freshcare and Internal Auditor Training, are purposely capped at 12 people. Everyone has an opportunity to ask specific questions about their food business and their HACCP plan.

Whenever possible our examples are based on information supplied by class members. Why would you use examples from a fictitious factory, when class members can tell you exactly how they managed an issue with their HACCP Plan or quality management system. We also use examples from our own experiences conducting food safety audits, HACCP Audits, managing food businesses or preparing clients for SQF, BRC and HACCP Certification audits.

Why QMS Audits Training?

At QMS Audits, we are the largest independent provider of HACCP and Freshcare Training in Australia.  We are passionate about ensuring everybody who attends our training learns how to do things. If you do our 2 day online HACCP course we want you to able to write up a HACCP Plan. If you do our Internal Auditor Training, we want you to be able to conduct a detailed Internal audit and to be able to understand audit trails.

With all types of HACCP, Internal Auditor and Freshcare training  – you have to get the technical part right. You need to learn the key parts, so you can feel comfortable and prepared during an audit. But adult learning needs to be fun – otherwise you will fall asleep. We also believe that it doesn’t have to be filled with acronyms and jargon. So, instead we fill our food safety and ISO training courses with lots of examples taken from day-to-day life, anecdotes from clients and audits and try to make it fun and interactive. We have gone out of our way to ensure our online training courses, which are delivered as Virtual Classrooms, using Zoom, are very human and very interactive.

We had double digit growth in our training year on year for the last 7 years. Frequently, we see past students and auditors refer new students and other staff to our training – so we must be doing something right. We keep it simple and straight forward and hopefully a little bit funny (just occasionally!).
