The 100% online Quality Assurance & Keeping Limits for Chocolatiers Program is all about science – the science of producing a quality product, handling and storing it properly and knowing its keeping limits. We also discuss food safety regulations and labeling standards in depth, especially as they relate to standards, nutrition, dietary restrictions and traceability.

There are no supplies needed for this program but you will be asked to make one of your own chocolate recipes to complete a standing study and report on the results for one of your assignments.

“The researches were awesome! I love the exchanges of ideas with other classmates and the feedback that I get from Kerry ”
Hannah Lyn, Jan. ‘18 Graduate
"Yes! Far and beyond. Very in-depth, comprehensive coverage of all topics involving quality assurance and keeping limits explored in a great logical order throughout the modules."
Jefrey, Oct. ‘17 Graduate
“My expectations were in fact met and then some. Not ever working in a chocolate business has been considered a disadvantage to truly understanding the scientific and other changes that are inherent to our product. Now I understand the concepts. Previous experience in the food service business gave me a foundation of food safety. ”
