Good Manufacturing Practices

GMP Online Training is going through a redesign and is not available at the moment.

IMPORTANT - The GMP Online Training was presented using Flash Player. Flash Player is no longer supported by all browsers and poses a security issue for users.

The Food Centre has started to redesign the training site on the same learning principles - by video and pdf files for you to administer to your staff on learning objectives, training records and quizzes.

Good Manufacturing Practices are the basic principles of operation a food processor should follow to produce a consistent, quality food product and are the basis of HACCP pre-requisite programs.

The GMP online training has been set up for processors to train their employees on the importance of GMPs anytime and anywhere in the plant. Membership is an annual basis from the time you register and there is unlimited access to the training site until your membership expires. If you change your mind about taking the GMP course that you have registered for, you will need to contact the GMP Administrator at: or call (306) 933-7555. If a refund is processed a cancellation fee will be deducted from any refund.

There are 8 modules which range from 8-14 minutes in length. All training materials (training records, training presentations, quizzes and reference materials) required to complete each module is provided on this website. We suggest that employees are trained in all 8 GMP areas so they understand the importance of all the GMP areas. The content of the modules is general and therefore you may wish to stress important plant specific requirement to your employees.

The online training is simple and easy to use. There are seven simple steps for Employers to follow when administering the training.

Step 1: Select the GMP Module you wish to train your employees.

Step 4: Print the Module Training Record PDF file.
Step 5: Administer the Training Module Presentation Flash File (4.36MB).
