Training Course Content

This course is made up of the following modules:

Introduction to Understanding E. coli
This section informs the learner what content will be featured in the training course, as well as a key recommendation summary.

Section 1 – Understanding E. coli
This section covers topics such as what is E. coli, how it can spread and its symptoms. It also highlights the groups at most risk, what can be done to prevent infection, and how to protect others. To help understand the spread, it also discusses how the introduction of HACCP can help and how safe food hygiene practises can reduce the chances of cross-contamination.

Section 2 – The Spread of E. coli
This section looks at how the infection can spread by carefully looking at different but highly probably scenarios such as in a food factory, a school, a supermarket, a restaurant and a residential home.

Section 3 – HACCP Principles
In this section, HACCP will be looked at via its seven principles. These principles include conducting a hazard analysis, where significant hazards are likely to occur to record-keeping, and the act of recording information that can be used to prove that the food was produced safely.
