Segment 2 Seafood HACCP Course

Tuscaloosa Co Extension Office, 2513 7th Street Tuscaloosa AL, 35401

The standard agenda is a 1-day (6.5 hours) course. The student must provide a letter of “Course Completion” for Segment One training to be able to attend the Segment Two course. The student is responsible for providing the FDA’s Fish and Fishery Products Hazards and Control Guidance Fourth Edition (FDA Hazards Guide) for use during the course. The times allotted to each section are recommendations to allow for enough learning opportunities. However, there is flexibility in the design based on the nature of the audience (i.e., all use the same processing, homogeneous audience by topic, or very small class size. Regardless of the format of the course, it is important that all agenda items be covered and that 3‐4 hours are allowed for the practical work session to develop a hazard analysis and HACCP Plan.
