Swabbing 101

August 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


We’ve created a brand new course to help you get the proficiency testing you need for your environmental monitoring program. With this new interactive course, Swabbing 101, you can train your team, gain a better understanding of EMP and receive a certificate, which will assist with GFSI compliance.

Course Objectives:

This training reviews the definition and significance of environmental monitoring, the concept of zoning in environmental sampling, and sampling for the various pathogens and indicators. The instructor discusses the importance of buffers in sample preservation and demonstrates proper swabbing techniques.

During the course, you receive two practice swabbing exercises and one actual swabbing with an inoculated surface to assess your proficiency in recovering microorganisms. Each of your attempts is recorded in case your swabs are not in the acceptable z score. We can then review your technique and see if you missed something.

Who Should Attend:

  • Food Safety and Quality Staff
  • Production Management
  • Sanitation Staff
  • Anyone wanting to improve their swabbing technique

Cancellations for public training must be made at least 10 business days before the event for a full refund. Requests for refunds 10 business days or less before the training will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee. No refunds (or credit transfer) will be issued 5 business days or less before the training.
