This eLearning course will teach you everything you need to know about root cause analysis. It’s designed for staff who are going to be accountable or responsible for managing the team or those who are members.

Root cause analysis when completed effectively is a time-consuming process, so it’s essential to be practical about when it should be applied. This course provides simple to follow and standard compliant instructions on which non-conformances must be assessed for root cause analysis.

Although there are many root cause analysis methods available, none of them, on their own provide a solution that you can pick up and use immediately, as each of them have their limitations. This is why Techni-K has developed a method that takes all the best aspects from the current methods, puts them together and fills the gaps to provide a 6-step solution.  This course takes you through that 6-step process so that you can build this into your business’ procedure and implement it straight away.

It’s been a requirement of the BRCGS standard for a few years now, that staff who carry out root cause analysis must be trained and that you must have a documented procedure that defines how root cause analysis must be completed. Completing this eLearning will enable you to train your team and also develop a compliant procedure.

This training has been designed to meet the following sections of the BRCGS Standards:

Food Safety
Issue 8
Issue 6
Agents & Brokers
Issue 3
Storage & Distribution
Issue 4
3.7 Corrective and preventive actions3.6 Corrective and preventive action3.9 Corrective and preventive actions3.3 Corrective and preventive action

We recommend that you complete the mini training ‘Understanding improvement and non-conformance actions‘ before taking any of the other courses in the corrective and preventive action series.

It provides the foundation of the basic understanding required for improvement and non-conformance actions. This allows additional learning to be overlayed, producing a gradual learning experience – preventing the learner from becoming overwhelmed.
