Introduction

This course allows the learner to gain an understanding of basic food microbiology with a focus on food safety.It is important to understand the basics of food-borne pathogens (germs) and their impact on food safety. This course will also give the learner the necessary skills to interpret laboratory reports and make informed decisions based on these results.
