Category Learning Module - Poultry

Category Learning Module - Poultry

The BRCGS Academy's Category Learning Modules help you develop your product safety skills. Each module focuses on a specific category relevant to the Global Standards. The new training courses allow you to gain a greater level of knowledge and understanding about each category.

Course Description

BRCGS have for some time developed and delivered auditor competency requirements and assessment criteria for each of the product categories.  Core technical knowledge sets are required for most categories and product specific knowledge.

The BRCGS Category 2 Learning Module provides delegates with the understanding of what the impacts on food safety and quality are likely to be, allowing the appropriate discussions with factory staff to be undertaken. We cover areas outside the Standard, such as welfare and veterinary inspection, so that if procedures relating to these are observed then it is understood why.

The aims of the course are to provide delegates with the relevant information covering the:

  • - different types of contamination found in a Poultry factory covering microbiological, chemical, physical
  • - controls expected to be in place to manage contamination.
  • - practices to be applied when receiving birds into the Lairage
  • - different stages of the Production process
