  1. I am interested in getting HACCP certified. How do I know your certification is accepted by my local auditors or govt. inspections? We are located in Ontario, California. We manufacture animal snacks for different types of pets, poultry, fish, pig and so on. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Kachik –

      This course is certified by the International HACCP Alliance. The trainers who conduct the course are all HACCP certified trainers and auditors. Once you’ve completed the course and passed the test, you will receive a Certificate of Completion for Intro to HACCP.

      Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

  2. What are the prp’s for this course? Also, is this schedule based or work at your own pace? And does it take 90 days to complete, or is that just how long you have access after paying? Thank you.

    1. Hi Amy –

      There are no PRP’s for this course, this is an introductory course to HACCP with a certificate at the end. This is a self paced course, so you work at your own pace. You have access to the course for 90 days to complete it.

      Hope that helps!
