Basic and Advanced Modules

3-A SSI offers E-learning Modules at two levels: basic and advanced. The Basic Modules provide an overview of the most important concepts related to a given subject. They are targeted at a wide audience including equipment fabricators, food processors, regulatory sanitarians, as well as students and young professionals entering beginning their careers. No previous knowledge of the hygienic design or a given topic is required. All Basic 3-A Modules are available for free. The 3-A Advanced Modules have been developed as a continuation of the Basic ones and they offer a more in-depth knowledge on a given topic. It is assumed that learners are already familiar with the relevant concepts of hygienic design through the Basic Modules and we could proceed directly to the implementation of those concepts. Advanced modules offer considerably more examples and practices that could be implemented on sites. To get a full benefit from the Advanced Modules, we encourage you to view the Basic ones beforehand. The 3-A Basic and Advanced Modules are available for free.
