Food Safety Short Course



We have had a busy Spring but are ready to get started on some new opportunities with you!

The first is our Produce Safety Workshop. This workshop will be offered over 6 days (2 hours each day).
The schedule is 4pm to 6pm on Monday July 19, Tuesday July 20, and Wednesday July 21 and Monday July 26, Tuesday July 27, and Wednesday July 28, 2021.

    The course provides fundamental, science-based, on-farm food safety knowledge to fresh fruit and vegetable farmers, packers, regulatory personnel and others interested in the safety of fresh produce. This includes assessing produce safety risks, implementing Good Agricultural Practices, and how to meet regulatory demands associated with the FSMA Produce Safety Rule, as well as meet buyer requirements for food safety.

    While the course is designed for those wanting to grow product for the US market, the course is based upon standardized good agricultural practices in order to endure food safety. This information is also useful for companies purchasing produce as well as for educators and scientists working with the produce industry.
The curriculum was developed by the Produce Safety Alliance. It will be presented in English by Penn State’s Richard Kralj, a designated lead instructor for this course, along with the support of NULES faculty. It will be offered in a live-online format. A booklet will be provided for the course (digital and print).
This course is supported by the US Embassy in Kyiv and there is no charge for Ukrainian professionals.
Attendance in each session is mandatory in order to obtain the Produce Safety Alliance Certificate.
Class size is limited to 24.

     This is an "independent study" course delivered online. That means you work independently and at your own pace; at work, the library, your home, anywhere! It is ideal for the busy professional (and those who want to work on their English skills).
This course is designed to teach you the essentials of food safety, food microbiology, sanitary design principles for facilities and equipment, worker hygiene practices, correct procedures for cleaning and sanitizing, food defense and plant security, and more.
