Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training Course
The PSA Grower Training Course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’
PCQI training courses will address the new Food Safety Modernization Act regulation, which requires every
covered processing facility to have one trained person as a Qualified Individual to implement and maintain a Food Safety Plan. FSVP training courses will provide participants with the knowledge to implement the requirements of the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs for importers of food for humans regulation of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
