The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) Grower Training Course is a standardized curriculum that covers a wide range of information on produce safety, including a foundation of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule requirements. It is recognized by the FDA as one way to satisfy the training requirement of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule, written in provision 112.22(c).
MSU Extension is able to offer the PSA Grower Training at no cost to growers. All trainings are conducted by MSU Extension educators who meet the training requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule, and a Produce Safety Alliance lead trainer is present at all events.
Individuals who attend the entire training will be eligible to receive a certificate from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO), which verifies they have completed the course.
