Developing skills in dairy manufacturing is an ongoing challenge, but there are several organisations in Australia offering free training courses to support you.

You can use these courses for induction, targeted training or refresher training. Each course is tailored to Australian dairy processing and comes with a certificate of completion.

The free online Dairy Australia courses include:

  • Understanding Food Safety Programs (218)
  • Food Recall (226)
  • Microbiological Testing in Dairy Manufacturing (226)

There has been significant interest in these 3 courses, with the number of South Australian participants indicated in brackets.

Also available through the Dairysafe website is a free four-part webinar series on ‘Managing listeria in dairy manufacture’, including a skills and knowledge evaluation and certificate of completion.

“We encourage all members of the dairy industry to utilise these courses, as part of their focus on developing skills and knowledge within their business, continuous improvement and food safety culture,” said Geoff Raven, CEO of Dairysafe.
