This workshop is designed for pasteurizer operators, but should be beneficial to all involved with milk pasteurization, including production, QA/QC & maintenance personnel. The course is instructed by industry experts and representatives from NYS Agriculture & Markets and provides an overview of the design, operation, cleaning and maintenance of HTST systems. All required regulatory tests for HTST pasteurizers will be discussed and/or presented in a hands-on format to meet the training requirements for performing HTST system testing under the NY State Broken Seal Policy. Information on HHST/UP systems will be covered, as warranted. Background in dairy microbiology, product safety & quality will also be provided.
UHT-HTST Combination Course
Workshop Dates: April 10-12, 2018
Location: Cornell University, 148 Stocking Hall Conference Center, Ithaca, NY 14853
This course is the first of its kind and offers pasteurizer-specific topics for Ultra-High Temperature Processing. Participants interested in UHT only, may leave after the first full day or opt to stay for the entire course for dual certification. HTST operators will start at noon on the first day or they can attend all three full days for a dual certification. Both workshops will qualify for the NYS Ag. And Mkts. broken seal program.
The “new” UHT portion will include UHT components, instruments, sequence logic, UHT charts, regulatory tests and broken seal requirements. This course is an important value-add for processing plants with this specialized equipment. Both groups will receive instruction on cleaning and sanitizing, recording charts, and dairy microbiology.
The HTST section of course will include HTST equipment design, instrumentation, maintenance of HTST systems, and regulatory testing.
Participants may choose the combination course (both UHT and HTST) or just one section: either UHT or HTST.
UHT Tuition is $150 for in-state participants-$180 for out of state registrants. HTST Tuition is $600.00 for in-state registrants -- $725.00 for out of state registrants. Tuition for the combination course is $725 for in-state participants--$880 for out of state. Enrollment is limited to the first 35 participants. Course earns 3 CEUs.
