  • DWC FoodTech is pleased to offer two courses dealing with UHT-processing and aseptic packaging.
    • The Approved Persons Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging. This is an advanced program suitable for those involved with the development, validation, operation and control of UHT processing and aseptic packaging of low-acid and acid foods and beverages.
    • Operators and Supervisors Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging. This program is suitable for those involved in (or have an interest in) UHT processing and/or aseptic packaging but do not require the advanced level of training required to determine, validate or verify the adequacy of heat treatments.
    These courses can be presented on-site at manufacturers’ plants or at regional centres throughout Australia, New Zealand and the ASEAN region. For more information please contact DWC FoodTech at info@dwcfoodtech.com.au or www.dwcfoodtech.com.au

  • The Grocery Manufacturers Association is pleased to offer a comprehensive battery of thermal processing workshops at GMA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.. Five stand-alone, hands-on workshops and an introductory module that builds upon the information learned in Better Process Control School focus on the core skills of developing thermal processes and resolving deviations encountered during the processing of food products. GMA's Thermal Processing Professional Training (TPPT) Program is the next step for the processing specialist working toward becoming a process authority. For individuals who do not wish to attend the entire two week program, registration for individual workshops is encouraged.
