Produce Safety Alliance Integrated Grower and Train-the-Trainer Course

Thursday, June 8, 2017 8:00 AM - Friday, June 9, 2017 5:30 PM

Course description:

The PSA Integrated Training combines both the PSA Grower Training and the PSA Train-the-Trainer Course. This integration was developed to provide options for areas of the country that may have some growers that need training and some trainers that need training, but neither group is large enough to warrant a single training focus.

Who should attend?

Both produce growers and those interested in becoming PSA Trainers should attend the integrated course. Day 1 is the full PSA Grower Training Course for fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. Produce safety educators and others who work with fruit and vegetable growers who are interested in becoming PSA Trainers or PSA Lead Trainers will need to attend both Day 1 and 2. Day 2 will include additional presentations to ensure trainers are ready to deliver the modules to growers.


Registration is limited to 35 growers and 15 trainers. Total cost to attend varies depending on participation on Day 1 only (growers; $225) or on both days (trainers; $325).
