The course has been designed to reflect the immediate needs for producers to meet the Harmonised Australian Retailer Produce Scheme (HARPS) requirements, using case studies and practical examples where possible. In addition, the course will include Food Safety Risk assessment and the HACCP process, which will qualify as ‘HACCP refresher training’ (this will save needing to attend a separate HACCP Refresher course).
Attendees will be provided with a handbook with the slide presentation and provision for note taking as well as supporting documents for exercises and case studies (all to keep). The course will also provide example templates that attendees can use to adapt to their own specific activities. To maximise the value of the training the number of attendees is being capped at 15 per daily session, so places will fill up fast.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The course is particularly aimed at Tier 1 and 2 growers, suppliers, packers, and wholesalers to the major grocery retailers. Given the deadline for HARPS approval is 1st Jan 2019, growers are encouraged to complete training as soon as possible.
This course will also qualify as HACCP refresher training.
