Alchemy Academy offers online courses that can be taken on demand.
The firm said normally company managers, supervisors and other staff have to travel for professional development training but now they can access training, developed by experts, from their home or office at a time they choose.
It was developed with industry associations, certification bodies and Alchemy’s consulting organization.
Topics include ‘Implementing SQF Systems for Manufacturing Edition 8’ and ‘SQF Quality Systems for Manufacturing’ (both official SQF Institute courses).
As well as ‘Preventive Controls for Human Food’ (approved by the FSPCA) and ‘Internal Auditing Basics & Advanced’ courses.
Raj Shah, Alchemy chief marketing and strategy officer, said it helps users get the training they want at their convenience.
“Food industry leaders recognize that to have continued impact in their jobs and careers, they need high quality professional training. But most food professionals are very busy and rarely have the time, budget, or ability to leave their facilities.”
More than 2.5 million workers at 35,000 locations use Alchemy’s learning, communications and performance programs.
“I took an Alchemy Academy course and it aligned perfectly with my actual experience on the manufacturing floor,” said Phalone Clayton of Red Diamond Coffee and Tea.
“The self-paced eLearning curriculum was great; it allowed me to save on travel costs and I didn’t have to miss any time at work.”
