Abstract

Courses and Training Programme, MARDI offers extensive training services to support the food industries and other related agencies to understand and implement food safety standards and requirements. This includes Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) training to extension officers and enforcers from various government agencies. The effectiveness of HACCP training conducted by MARDI was determined and the impact of training to the course participants in terms of knowledge and skills ability of the participants was evaluated. An online survey was conducted involving 200 respondents in 2013 and 104 completed questionnaires were furnished. The study found that the participants’ knowledge on HACCP was significantly improved (p <0.001) after attending the HACCP course conducted by MARDI. Thus, it could be suggested that MARDI plays a vital role in building HACCP capability.
