DWC FoodTech is pleased to announce that we will be presenting a new course which shall be known as the Operators and Supervisors Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging. The course runs for 4½ days, has no prerequisites and is less demanding than our Approved Persons Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging.

The program has been developed for those involved with the development, verification, maintenance and operation of UHT processing and aseptic packaging of low-acid and acid foods and beverages. It is suitable for those working 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 heat treatments (F values). The syllabus presents the theoretical basis underpinning thermal processing technologies for the manufacture of acid and low-acid UHT processed foods and provides practical training in the operation of UHT heat treatment plants and aseptic filling systems.

The syllabus applies to the manufacture of sterilised low-acid shelf stable products (aseptic), pasteurised acid shelf stable products and pasteurised products with a nominated refrigerated shelf-life. Throughout the training the printed course manual is enhanced by numerous practical examples drawn from DWC FoodTech’s extensive commercial experience.

The Operators and Supervisors Course for UHT Processing and Aseptic Packaging can be presented in-house or at central venues and is appropriate for Supervisors, QC and QA Personnel, Verifies, Maintenance Staff and Operators involved in the manufacture of UHT heat processed foods. The course can be tailored to suit particular manufacturing operations and filling systems.
