Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/04/2022

The University of Wisconsin-Madison will be hosting a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points basics training this month. The sessions will be held August 17-18 at the Meat Science & Animal Biologics Discovery building.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture will be providing tuition reimbursement for participants that reside in Wisconsin through the Meat Talent Development Program. The Meat Talent Development Program includes efforts to attract students to meat careers, provide financial support to students in Wisconsin meat processing training programs, support meat processing program development, and connect the industry with potential employees.

The training will discuss HACCP principles and the development and implementation of HACCP plans and programs, including new USDA and Food Safety Inspection Service regulations for meat and poultry establishments. This course will include topic presentations, provide a hands-on opportunity to develop HACCP program components, and satisfy the training requirement specified in the 1996 Pathogen Reduction/HACCP regulation. Participants that complete the training will receive a certificate of completion and their name will be added to a registry of HACCP trained individuals that is maintained by the International Meat and Poultry HACCP Alliance.

The registration fee is $500 per person and includes materials, handouts, and other training needs. Lodging and parking is not included. Participants that reside in Wisconsin can request tuition reimbursement through DATCP’s Meat Talent Development Program during check-in at the event.

The training is limited to 60 participants. For more information, call 608-263-4891.
