Preventive Controls/HACCP Training

Both the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have regulatory programs that require food processors to attend training in order to comply with the regulations. University of Connecticut Extension provides courses to meat and poultry processors, seafood processors, and those that need to comply with the Preventive Controls for Human Foods Rule of the Food Safety Modernization Act.
