NSF Training Course: HACCP for Building Water Systems
Cost: $580 per person

HACCP methodology is a structured, systematic, cost-effective paradigm best known for its successful, widespread use in food safety. HACCP is used to identify specific hazards and specify measures for their control.  HACCP is mandated in the US for certain food production processes and is used voluntarily for many more; it has become the standard for food safety management systems around the world.  The adaptation of HACCP to building water systems has proven effective for preventing injury and illness.  In keeping with the mission of NSF International, to protect and improve human health and safety, NSF now offers education, training and certification courses in HACCP for Building Water Systems.

This course answers key questions:

  • What is HACCP?
  • What are the hazards associated with building water systems?
  • How is HACCP applied to building water systems?
  • Who can use HACCP for
    building water systems?

What is included:

  • Course materials
  • Lectures by internationally recognized subject-matter
  • Hands on-workshop
  • Certification exam

Who should attend:  

Facility managers, facility engineers, safety professionals, certified industrial hygienists, infection preventionists, epidemiologists, water treatment professionals, regulatory professionals, risk managers, regulators, attorneys, and the general public who are interested in learning more about this issue.
