Quality for HACCP Team

This Advanced HACCP Training course will help you qualify to be part of the HACCP Team or become a HACCP Team Leader or SQF Practitioner. HACCP Training conducted by an RTO is a mandatory requirement of HARPS certification.

Expand on the 7 Principles of HACCP

Learn how to apply the 7 principles of HACCP and build on the pre-requisite programs for a HACCP plan. We supply all of the templates so participants can build a HACCP plan from scratch or update and improve an existing one. For businesses that are undergoing HACCP Certification, our HACCP Training is strongly recommended as the first step to understanding what is required during the HACCP audit.

Nationally Recognised Units of Competency

It satisfies the requirements for HARPS, SQF, BRC, WQA/Supplier Excellence, GlobalGAP, PrimeSafe, SafeFood Qld, AQIS, Dairy Safe Victoria and FSSC 22000. Participants undertake units of competency that are nationally recognised (RTO Number: 45344).

Small HACCP Training Classes

Capped at 12 people

Just like our public training courses, all of our online training courses, including HACCP, Freshcare and Internal Auditor Training, are purposely capped at 12 people. Everyone has an opportunity to ask specific questions about their food business and their HACCP plan.

Real-world examples you can relate to

Whenever possible our examples are based on information supplied by class members. Why would you use examples from a fictitious factory, when class members can tell you exactly how they managed an issue with their HACCP Plan or quality management system. Whenever we can, we use examples from the class or from our own experiences conducting food safety audits, HACCP Audits, managing food businesses or preparing clients for SQF, BRC and HACCP Certification audits.

What is HACCP?

HACCP is a gateway system for food safety

If you can get your head around the fact that a pedestrian gate will probably only stop the dog from getting out, while a castle should stop an entire army, then you can probably get your head around HACCP.


HACCP is about identifying potential food safety and quality hazards and then deciding what type of gate you need to put in place – do I need a pedestrian gate or a castle with a moat, draw bridge, thick walls and guards with bow and arrows. We think a pedestrian gate controls for low-risk hazards and is a Control Point (CP), while the Castle gate acts as a Critical Control Point (CCP). If the guy controlling the drawbridge is only letting the pretty girls through – then maybe he is acting more like a Quality Control Point (QCP) and letting this pass-through based on their quality!

We will teach you how to identify and analyse food safety hazards, what some of the regulations are and how to control them. Then we will teach you how to write up a HACCP Plan – we give you HACCP templates to give you a head start and you will get to write some of your HACCP Plan up in the class. We drive healthy class discussion to keep you awake and to keep it relevant.

Practical Advice For All Audits

We know what the Auditors want to see

At QMS Audits – we do lots of HACCP Training, HACCP Audits and help our clients to write concise HACCP Plans and well structured, simple GFSI quality manuals, such as SQF and BRC. As QA consultants we work with all of the Certification Bodies, not just one. Our advice comes from working with a range of auditors from different certification bodies, including SAI Global, SGS, Aus-Qual and Merieux Nutrisciences and small to large businesses, so you know you will be covered during any audit. Basically we know what works and what doesn’t. We know exactly what the auditors want to see.

Advanced HACCP Training

Why QMS Audits Training?

Largest Independent Provider of HACCP training

At QMS Audits, we are the largest independent provider of HACCP and Freshcare Training in Australia.  When you do our 2 day HACCP course we want you to able to write up a HACCP Plan. When you do our Internal Auditor Training, we want you to be able to conduct a detailed Internal audit and to be able to understand audit trails.

Fun, insightful and interactive

With all types of HACCP, Internal Auditor and Freshcare training , you have to get the technical part right. We teach you the key parts, so you can feel comfortable and prepared during an audit. But adult learning also needs to be fun, otherwise you will fall asleep. We also believe that it doesn’t have to be filled with acronyms and jargon. So, instead we fill it with lots of examples taken from day-to-day life, anecdotes from clients and audits and try to make it fun and interactive. We have gone out of our way to ensure our online training courses, which are delivered as Virtual Classrooms, using Zoom, are very human and very interactive.

Simple, straight-forward and funny!

We had more than 100% growth in our training last year. More and more we see past students send other staff to our training – so we must be doing something right. We keep it simple and straight forward and hopefully a little bit funny (just occasionally).
