Trainer Sharing Program
Are you short a trainer for your class? Do you need someone to fill in for a couple of modules? We can help. The Center has funds to help bring in trainers to your state to ensure every farmer has an equal chance to attend a class near them. Contact Ellen for details.
Formally request trainer sharing funds here.
Funding is available to support sending a lead trainer of the Produce Safety Alliance grower training, Preventive Controls Human Food training, or other food safety certified program training in the absence of lead trainers.
Twelve travel stipends (up to $500) will be available each year. All funds are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
Funding can be requested for a niche population training, but not for an individual company.
New Trainer Mentorship Program
Are you a new trainer? Would you like assistance getting caught up with the Produce Safety Rule? Would you like to train with experienced trainers to gain experience teaching the Produce Safety Alliance Curriculum, The Preventive Controls Rule, or the Sprouts Rule? The Center is creating a new trainer mentorship program. Contact Angela for more information.
Apply for the program here.
Each pair will make a 6-9 month commitment to meeting monthly online and once in person. Eight stipends (up to $500) are available each year. All funds are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
Participants are expected to attend a pre-program webinar and program evaluation.
Each mentoring pair will establish their own goals for the match.
