Fall & Winter 2019-2020 PSA Training Brochure


Thanks to a grant from Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development under the FDA Cooperative Agreement PAR-16-137, MSU Extension is able to provide training using a standardized curriculum created and administered by the Produce Safety Alliance, at no cost to participants. This curriculum is recognized as adequate by the FDA for the training requirement of the Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule written in provision 112.22(c).

The FSMA Produce Rule Grower Training will cover a broad swath of produce safety. Topic areas include worker health and hygiene, water quality in pre-harvest and post-harvest environments, crop inputs and wildlife. Much of this training will help reinforce what growers already know and put into practice on their farms.

All MSU Extension trainings are conducted by educators who meet the training requirements for the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. In addition, a Produce Safety Alliance lead trainer is present at all training events.

Individuals who complete the Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion from the Association of Food and Drug Officials. The Association of Food and Drug Officials is an independent organization working in collaboration with the Produce Safety Alliance to serve as the long-term records archive for Produce Safety Alliance training.
