Description

Sprouter Training Part 2

Description: The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule establishes science-based minimum standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of certain produce grown for human consumption. Unless specifically exempt or excluded, sprout growing operations are subject to the Produce Safety Rule including the sprout-specific requirements in subpart M. The compliance date for large sprout operations has already passed and the compliance date for small operations is coming up in January 2018. This one-day course is the Part 2 of the Blended Combo Course. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive your SSA Training Course CERTIFICATE. The SSA training course will be helpful in understanding and implementing the Produce Safety Rule requirements and best practices for enhancing sprout safety.

Prerequisite: You must complete the Part 1 of the Blended Combo Course (i.e., SSA Online Course) within the past six months before taking this course (i.e., Part 2). For instructions of completing the Part I of the Blended Courses (i.e., SSA Online Course), please visit: https://www.ifsh.iit.edu/ssa/resources/ssa-training.
