The Brewers Association, supported by funding from the Department of Labor, completed the first of six scheduled trainings in 2021. The two-week long instructor facilitated course, “Hazard Reduction Practices for Cleaning Draught Beer Lines,” guides students through three online learning modules covering foundational draught line cleaning mechanics with emphasis on risk prevention and OSHA compliance.
About the Training Program
The course was carefully constructed to accommodate the schedule of a busy professional, pairing state of the art video content with reading and writing assignments that can be completed at the student’s leisure. Matt Stinchfield, Brewers Association Safety Ambassador, is the lead instructor for the course and brings over thirty years of experience in environmental health and safety programming. While the online portion is self-paced, please note that this training program is rigorous and grounded in safety principles. All students who complete the learning modules and pass a final knowledge assessment will receive a certificate of completion.
Limited capacity. Registration open while supply lasts.
