Advanced Trainer Workshop

The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) Advanced Trainer Workshop has been developed to provide attendees with an in-depth scientific understanding of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and help trainers enrich their PSA training skills. This workshop is a blend of lecture, hands-on activities, and breakout groups separated into six half-day modules:

  1. Micro 101
  2. Soil Amendments and Animals
  3. Production Water
  4. Sanitation
  5. Postharvest Water
  6. Instructor Tips for Participant Engagement

The curriculum development team, comprised of the Produce Safety Alliance and members of the Southern Center for FSMA training, developed this training to give participants an opportunity to perform hands-on activities. These experiential learning opportunities give participants first-hand experience with many of the practices that the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requires of growers.

Prerequisite: Individuals must have attended the PSA Train-the-Trainer Course prior to attending the Advanced Trainer Workshop.

As workshops are scheduled, we will list registration information on this page.
