SQSA is a registered provider of HACCP training for students seeking the AFDO/ Seafood HACCP Alliance certification. The “Alliance” is a collaborative training program involving representation from three federal agencies: the Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture-CSREES, and U.S. Department of Commerce-Seafood Inspection Program.
Curriculum: The Seafood HACCP course provides training in Pre-Requisite Programs (i.e., Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP/SCP), current Good Management Practices (cGMP), hazard analysis, determining critical control points, establishing and verifying critical limits, determining corrective actions, internal auditing practices, and developing monitoring records for cooked and raw seafood products.
Aside from covering the required course curriculum, Mr. Zimmerman provides students with the critical feedback they need to pass regulatory audits. As a lead auditor, Mr. Zimmerman casts a wider perspective on compliance throughout the seafood supply chain. Detailed focus is made on essential regulatory documentation such as how to produce monitoring and verification records for processing and sanitation procedures. At the end of the course, we walk the students through a sample HACCP program to help students visualize the steps involved in identifying hazards, which steps are critical to controlling significant hazards, and how you will prove to the officer that your operation is compliant with the regulation.
The Seafood HACCP course is offered in two formats:
HACCP Segment II
This Seafood HACCP Alliance alternative training curriculum has two parts or “Segments.” Segment One is the Seafood HACCP Internet course hosted by Cornell University. Those who complete the Internet course are eligible to attend the one-day Segment Two course taught by SQSA. We offer monthly public classes for the HACCP Segment II course.
Pre-requisite training requirements for AFDO Seafood HACCP Segment 2:
All students interested in attending an SQSA Virtual Segment 2 training must first complete Segment 1 online training with Cornell University/AFDO, which can be found here: https://seafoodhaccp.cornell.edu/segment-one-internet-training-course/ and the actual registration is here:https://cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1FkWtuncOnNa42q

HACCP Basic and Private Courses
The HACCP Basic Course provides the entire HACCP curriculum in a 2.5 day course without the need to complete an online self-taught segment. For operators that require several employees to be trained, it is more cost effective to have the instructor teach a course at your location. If you prefer to have a more personalized training experience SQSA offers both the HACCP Basic and the Segment II as private courses. The cost of a private course will depend on the location of your operation and the number of students that require training. Clients often combine our training services with other services such as environmental sampling, facility/document audits, quality control and HACCP program implementation.
