Online Food Safety & Food Handler certification
Online training is available for wholesale & retail Food Safety certification.
The Food Safety Certification for Managers, Chefs and Supervisors' course introduces you to the hazards and controls you will be facing in order to make a HACCP plan work. You will need this course to prepare yourself to create a proper risk and hazard analysis for a HACCP system, either for your wholesale or retail food facility. You must have food safety certification training, or equivalent, first.
The course will also prepare you to take either the Thomson Prometric (formerly Experior Assessments) CPFM test or the test for ServSafe manager's certification. You also have the choice of taking an WARFA-proctored CPFM exam for a modest additional charge. To register, go to the registration page

Online HACCP certification
The HACCP Level 1 course, available for either online or onsite study, introduces the HACCP recipe, which is the key to the HACCP process, whether your operation is a simple hot dog stand or a huge sausage plant. The menu or item that you produce will determine what recipe you will need to use to create the product(s) in your operation. A restaurant may have many recipes. Processes are grouped, and then recipes are categorized under the processes. Basic science is covered in this course. A good standard HACCP plan is much easier to implement after Dr. Snyder's principles are introduced in the course. To register, go to the registration page
The HACCP Level 2 course will give you the tools you will need for multi processes, e.g., in a restaurant or multi-process plants. This is an advanced course for those who have HACCP experience or those who need advance process control procedures. This course also helps you conduct and create internal and third party audits. This course is great for food safety inspectors, both in the government and private sectors. It will give you the tools needed to help train, maintain and improve HACCP plans and systems.

This course includes the latest and best retail/wholesale template for a proper
Codex based HACCP plan. Basically, you can change this MS Word document template to suit your needs. We will teach you how to use this document to create a top of the line HACCP plan for your company. The only problem is, with many simple HACCP training programs, you do not know enough science to properly identify and control the Critical Control Points. WARFA will help you with proper identification and solutions for your particular plan. You get three Anchor Super Scrub 2000 fingernail brushes, a digital thermister thermometer, and forms and support for creating your HACCP plan.
