The Washington State Tree Fruit Association will hold a Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training course on March 31st, in Yakima and an FSMA Produce Safety Alliance Integrated Training course on April 1st and 2nd in Wenatchee.
The PSA Grower Training is a one-day class that fulfills the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement for Produce Growers 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.”
The PSA Integrated Training combines both the PSA Grower Training and the PSA Train-the-Trainer Course. By combining the training for growers and trainers on Day-1 of the workshop, trainers will have the opportunity to engage in discussions and learn from the questions that grower participants ask. Day 2 of the workshop will be for trainers only, focusing on adult learning techniques and additional presentations to ensure trainers are prepared to deliver the FSMA Produce Safety Rule modules to growers.
