NJMEP In-Depth, Self-Paced, Online Food Safety Training Program
CURRENT GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS AND READINESS
Business professionals are busy. That is just a fact. Taking time away from work in order to enhance an individual’s skill set is often left by the wayside. Not because they don’t want to improve, but because the idea of putting up an “Out of Office” email response is often too stressful to consider. NJMEP wants to offer food manufacturers the opportunity to educate themselves and enhance their skills for cGMP in a more flexible format.
To achieve this goal, NJMEP developed the first online cGMP online course that will act as a supplementary course or preliminary training to attending an NJMEP facility for an in-person cGMP workshop.
cGMP Regulations is the process that ensures the food safety of a product by establishing manufacturing procedures, ensuring that food is safe and has been prepared, packed, and stored under hygienic conditions.
- Food manufacturers must comply with cGMP’s through new regulations to help establish and guide effective implementation of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
- cGMP’s are critical, not only to FSMA, but to every food safety and quality certification
- They are audited by third-party food safety auditors and are considered prerequisites
Participants will walk away with a fundamental understanding of the cGMP rules and regulations, changes to former requirements, best practices, and how to handle FDA and third-party Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) inspections. The course also focuses on internal auditing practices for cGMPs.
Food manufacturing is a moving target. Regulations change and processes evolve. Keeping up with these regulations can be a challenge when monitoring them alone. NJMEP’s online cGMP Regulations course includes the latest revisions to cGMP – according to the final rule for “Preventative Controls for Human Food”, released on September 17, 2015. The course spends time ensuring participants learn and truly understand these revised requirements.
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the components and requirements of cGMP within the food and beverage industry
- Implement cGMP through the organization to ensure sanitary and processing requirements are being effectively met
Once the online course concludes, the participants will need to undergo an interactive knowledge test. After successful completion of this exam, people will receive a certificate of successful completion.
Any company that has the chance to be inspected by a regulatory body, FDA or third-party auditors must understand Current Good Manufacturing Practice Requirements and be ready to put this knowledge into action which this course can assist with.
The course is designed for Food Safety Operations, Quality Control Personnel, or anyone else that may be involved with inspections or audits.
