One member of the HACCP team, should have a certificate of a formal HACCP training from a recognized organization, institution or trainer with a minimum duration of 2 days or 16 hours, taken within the last 5 years. The rest of the team should have at least an internal training to make sure they are knowledgeable of the HACCP principles. These trainings should be documented.
When it comes to HACCP training, Who? What? When? and How? are questions that have an ever-increasing variable of answers. Solutions such as outreach programs, consultants, classrooms, online and self-directed are only a few possibilities. Corporate culture will usually dictate how training is delivered but many are breaking with tradition and turning to online training for HACCP certification.
