Food Technology Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

If you are part of developing, implementing, or verifying a HACCP Plan in a food processing plant, this course will help you develop the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Work Instructions (WI) that are critical to ensuring HACCP Programs operate effectively. Class time is primarily spent working through group exercises that lead students through the full process of developing SOPs including developing the SOP framework, writing procedures and work instructions through to implementation and maintenance of the program. The material has been developed to meet the requirements of a business management system such as ISO 9001:2008. The course is applicable internationally, and to both seafood and agri-food sectors. BCIT issues a statement of completion to each participant who successfully completes this workshop with a pass grade of 70%. Website:
