Compliant with NACMCF, Codex Alimentarius, ISO 22000, FDA Food Code

TBFST LLC Basic HACCP Principles and Implementation w/ certificate $24.95

This course is fully compliant with the HACCP requirements of NACMCF (National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Food), Codex Alimentarius, ISO 22000, 2013 FDA Food Code, FDA HACCP Managing Food Safety, and the USDA HACCP manual.

We highly recommend taking the training and implementing a HACCP based food safety management system, because this is the wave of the future. HACCP is required by the FDA for Juice processors, and by the USDA for meat and poultry processors and packagers. Besides that, Soon eggs will be added to this list.

HACCP is a scientific approach to food production. Controls must be defined and implemented at each phase in a food flow process. Critical Control Points are determined, for a defined boundary of safety at that stage. The food flow is then monitored and records kept at each of these phases. When something gets out of bounds, corrective actions are taken to get that phase back within boundaries.

This leads to the following: A consistent product is produced and the safest product for human consumption is produced, and besides that is no better way to cover your hiney if something goes wrong.

Phone support for understanding HACCP, and implementing it in your situation is included for Students of our HACCP University.

Texas Food Handler

A new version of the Texas Food Establishment Rules, TFER, was passed in October of 2015. We have updating our curriculum to reflect those changes. The new TFER is available for download on the Department of State Health Services Website (DSHS)., or from our site form our “HACCP and Food Safety Documents” page in our main menu above.

We provide Texas Food Handler online, classroom, and on-site training in Tarrant County and Austin Texas. We are trying to expand with a Houston office, after they recover from their little storm last year.

Tarrant County Food Handler Classroom Training

The Food Handler Education or Training Program is from from a Senate Bill of the 80th Legislature, regarding the accreditation of basic food safety education or training programs for food handlers.

The rule is meant to supply data for the certifying food safety education or coaching programs for food handlers. a daily customary governing the enfranchisement of food handler programs helps cut back redundancy in state agencies, hopefully leading to less expenses. Education of the food handlers provides higher qualified workers, thereby reducing the danger of food-borne sickness outbreaks caused by improper food preparation and handling techniques.

Food Handler Program

The Texas Department of State Health Services, the Food Handler Program, along with the the Certified Food Manager Program, promotes the health and safety of the citizens of the state by educating food service employees in the principles of food safety to produce safe food products for Texas consumers.

State Laws place the food safety of a food institution on the Certified Food Manager of the operation.

Food Handler Safety

Texas Food Handler safety includes storing food at the proper temperature before and after preparation to limit microbial growth as much as possible. If it is a food which requires cooking, it must be cooked to the proper temperature. The ONLY way to tell the temperature is to use a food thermometer. You cannot tell by looking (unless you are Wonder Chick, Wonder Woman, or wonder Something). If you do not use a food thermometer you are playing Russian Roulette with your life and your customers life. You are a professional food service worker, take your profession seriously. Food must be kept in totally sanitary conditions away from other foods or surfaces which have not been properly washed, rinsed, and sanitized.

Hand Washing

Food Managers are going to have to start enforcing proper hand washing.

The most important method in preventing the transmission of food borne or blood borne pathogens, to yourselves or others is proper hand washing! Quit spreading shit around People. Food Service is a serious occupation.

TABC and Food Handler

Food Handler and TABC. We offer a very nice TABC and food handler training and certification course. Besides that, these courses provide all the credentials that you need for food handling credentials in the state of Texas, and a TABC certificate to serve alcohol in the state of Texas.
