The deadline to register for this course is September 8. The course will give individuals in the animal food industry the opportunity to gain an understanding of the new safety requirements and implement a plan for animal food safety associated with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The training course also has an additional component that will be accredited to the HACCP Alliance. Upon completion of both courses, participants will receive two certificates and will be able to demonstrate a “preventative controls qualified individual” to the FDA. “I have really enjoyed the instructors in this course,” says Bill Bookout, president of the National Animal Supplement Council from Valley Centre, California.

“You get a concentrated shot of technical information and it’s 8–5 every day. The instructors are technically competent, but they are also good teachers. I would really compliment them in that regard of being able to teach and to effectively communicate so that people understand the subjects being taught.”

The curriculum of the course was developed by the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance. The separate HACCP component occurs on the final day following the animal food training, requires registration and is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance.

“There are many new requirements, and this course will describe those requirements to participants as well as give some ideas for implementation and training to those concepts,” says Cassandra Jones, associate professor at Kansas State University.

Jones adds that she is excited to offer the training for industry and regulators.
