ASEAN health departments and food safety agencies have developed a set of model courses for use by vocational and higher education institutions in the training of technical and professional staff involved in food inspection and certification. The model courses support an overall objective of the ASEAN Expert Group on Food Safety to harmonise food inspection and certification regulation and practice in ASEAN.
The model courses may be freely used and adapted by any teaching or training provider in ASEAN provided proper acknowledgement is given and notification of usage is advised. The Model Courses includes editable files free of logos and backgrounds to encourage usage.
The Model Courses were developed with financial support from the Australian Government and with technical advice from the Australian Maritime College at the University of Tasmania, in particular from David Milne (Chief Technical Adviser). AMSAT International provided project development and management services over the life of the program.
