Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) 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 GMPs online training has been set up for processors to train their employees on the importance of Good Manufacturing Practices 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 GMPs online training, you will need to contact the GMP Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (306) 933-7555. If a refund is processed a cancellation fee will be deducted from any refund.

All training materials (training records, training presentations, quizzes and reference materials) required to complete each module is provided on this website.
