3-A SSI Introduces New
3-A SSI recently introduced the fourth in
a series of new Basics e-learning
modules and the first new Advanced
module, all designed to bring the world of hygienic equipment design to
audiences around the world at any time of the day or night.
4.0, Basics of Cleaning and Sanitizing, provides
a basic understanding of principles of cleaning, sanitizing, as well as
sterilization processes. It features a closer look at various methods of
cleaning, including manual cleaning, Clean-out-of-Place (COP), and
Clean-in-Place (CIP). It also covers information on inspection, cleaning and
sanitation documentation, as well as on safety hazards that might occur in the
process of cleaning.
The first three Basics modules were introduced last year and continue to receive
very positive feedback from users around the world. The first three modules in the series
1.0 Overview of Principles of Hygienic Design
& Foundation Elements
2.0 The Basics of Hygienic Equipment Design
3.0 Basics of Hygienic Facility Design &
Learning objectives are clearly listed at
the beginning of each module and interactive assessment tools are included to
support the learning experience. Each module is narrated and script is provided
for convenience. All materials are accompanied by straightforward illustrations
including photos from the field, animations, as well as informative diagrams. Each module is about one hour in length and
all viewers are encouraged to complete Module 1.0 before moving forward to
deepen their knowledge with the other modules.
The first new Advanced module, 2.1 Advanced Hygienic Equipment
Design: Materials & Surface Finishes, offers equipment designers
and specifiers with advanced hygienic design knowledge on the materials of
construction and surface treatments. The content emphasizes hygienic materials
selection and the metals and non-metals commonly used for product contact and
non-product contact surfaces. The Module also covers surface finishes, as well
as the selection process for surface treatment methods, to optimize corrosion
resistance, wear, durability, toxicity, and hygienic safety. The new advanced
module is available at a subscription price.
Additional modules are in development and other
advanced sections are planned for several of the modules. The modules are now available
at www.3-a.org in the Knowledge Center or go directly to: http://www.3-a.org/http//www.3-a.org/Knowledge-Center/E-learning-Modules.
