Acidified Foods Manufacturing School

The Acidified Foods Manufacturing School provides instruction primarily for operating supervisors, the individual who is in the plant or kitchen at the time an acidified preserved food product is packed and processed. The school is particularly intended for operators or operating supervisors involved in production of thermally processed acidified foods.

Course Structure
The Acidified Foods Manufacturing School has two parts or “Segments”. Segment One is the Internet course. Those who complete the Internet course are eligible to attend a Segment Two in-person course taught by an Acidified Foods Manufacturing School instructor. Those who complete both the Segment One Internet course and an in-person Segment Two course will receive a Certificate of Course Completion to demonstrate they meet the training requirement of the FDA Acidified regulation. This training sequence is equivalent to the training received by attending a standard in-person Better Process Control School course.
