The Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) division invites new auditor candidates and returning auditors requiring refresher training to attend a BAP auditor training course in Bangkok, Thailand, from June 19 to 25.
The course is also open to industry observers, including government officials, producers and other industry stakeholders who wish to learn more about the BAP certification standards and auditing process.
And, for the first time, the course will offer participants the opportunity to receive a Seafood HACCP Course Training Certificate authorized by the Seafood HACCP Alliance.
The course will cover all of the BAP seafood processing plant standards (Issue 4, Revision 2, December 2015); BAP finfish and crustacean farm standards (includes land-based aquaculture systems: ponds, fresh/brackish water cage farms and marine cage farms); BAP salmon farm standards; BAP finfish, crustacean and mollusk hatchery and nursery standards; BAP feed mill standards; and the new BAP mollusk farm standards.
The course will be held at the Ambassador Hotel Bangkok, and a special room rate has been arranged for course attendees.
The registration deadline is June 3. For detailed information about how to apply, competency requirements, fees and more, please click here.
