This online, self-directed course is designed for cidery staff and will cover key concepts of current Good Manufacturing Practices as they apply to cider production.
Course Description

This online course - developed by CINA instructors at Cornell's College of Agriculture & Life Sciences - is designed primarily for cidery staff to meet annual safety requirements. It focuses on the eight key sanitary conditions and practices found in current Good Manufacturing Practices as they apply in a cidery. The course will also cover quality assurance, quality control and touch on fundamentals of HACCP.

It does not count towards CINA’s Advanced Certificate in Cider & Perry Production.
