The Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Program course is designed to meet the USDA HACCP and FDA HACCP and FSMA requirements for environmental pathogens controls. It has also been expanded to cover CORONAVIRUS control program for food processing establishments to meet compliance with CDC and OSHA requirements.

Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Programs Development and Implementation

The National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods (NACMCF) defines “step” as a point, procedure, operation in the food safety system from primary production to final consumption.
The goal of this class is to provide information on how to establish solid validated safeguards at all steps along the global and national food supply chains using current scientific, technical, statutory, regulatory, managerial and other tools to control microbiological food safety hazards, especially Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella spp., to ensure the safety of foods . It also discusses the coronavirus control in food industries
