The Seafood HACCP Segment Two Course is a one-day practical course developed by the Seafood HACCP Alliance (SHA) in cooperation with the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO). The course provides an FDA approved “standardized curriculum” and is taught by trained instructors. Attendees will be able to ask questions, get assistance, and apply what they have learned in the Segment One course.
