Supervisors of thermal food processing operations, acidified food processing operations, and food container closure operations.
Please note: The two-day course is for acidified foods processing and glass container closure operations only.
Each processor of low-acid or acidified foods is required to operate with a certified supervisor on hand at all times during processing. This school provides the necessary training to certify supervisors of such processors.
The Oregon State University Better Process Control School is approved by the FDA and follows the prescribed course of instruction for certification. The two-day course addresses operations of acidified food processing systems, glass packaging systems and container closure inspection. In addition to the first two days, the four-day course addresses operations of retorts, low acid food processing systems, aseptic processing and packaging systems and container closure inspection.
