Online Food Safety Basics for Artisan Cheesemakers Course

The Innovation Center for US Dairy, as part of the Artisan Dairy Safety Advisory Group, has created an online safe cheesemaking certificate course tailored to those working at small farmstead and artisan cheese facilities. This course has been developed by, and is now available through, North Carolina State University.

The course is intended to be an introduction to controlling food safety hazards through GMPs, sanitation, good design, and environmental monitoring. As an on-demand, self-paced, self-study resource, the Artisan Dairy Safety Advisory Group hopes it will help cheesemakers of all experience levels by providing important information in an easy-to-use format which is accessible at the user's convenience. The full course consists of five sections:
(1) Importance of Food Safety
(2) Regulations and Standards
(3) Food Safety Hazards
(4) Good Manufacturing Practices and Process Controls
(5) Environmental Pathogen Monitoring and Testing

As an introduction, this $140 course is available FREE of charge until 12/31/2017, use the promotion code INTRO-FREE when registering!
