  • Participants will learn about FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements and details on how to develop a farm food safety plan.
  • Participants will be eligible to receive a certificate that verifies they have completed the training course.
  • To receive a certificate, a participant must be present for the entire training and submit the appropriate paperwork to their trainer at the end of the course.
