Designed for Busy Professionals

Our courses fit your schedule and provide training in various areas of food safety, including HACCP Certification. Course materials, quizzes, assignments and activities are delivered through Moodle, NC State’s online learning management system. Moodle also hosts forums for active discussion between students and instructors. If you’re a currently enrolled NC State student, you can take these courses on an as-needed basis in the spring, summer and fall semesters.

Academic Courses for College Credit

Our courses for college credit are online and available to anyone who registers through the university’s registrar’s office. You do not have to be admitted as a full-time student to take them, however, they do apply towards the Undergraduate Certificate in Food Safety and Quality Management.

Some feature video clips, virtual tours, case studies, scenario-based learning activities and quizzes. Graded quizzes and exams may be required if certification is involved.
