Training in Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is mandated for the seafood processors by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Basic HACCP courses teach the principles of HACCP and empower processors to develop HACCP plans specific for each seafood product they handle or produce.

Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood HACCP training and USDA requirements for HACCP training targeting Siluriformes.
