The International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI) Announces 2010 Course Schedule
Date:1/8/2010

All training costs will be reimbursed by IFPTI to enable state and local food protection professionals to overcome the limited funding and travel budgets that have prevented them from attending previous programs.

Battle Creek, Mich. (Vocus) January 6, 2010 -- The International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI) today released its initial training course schedule for 2010. Registration information including dates and locations can be found at www.ifpti.org. The schedule represents the Institute’s initial course offerings and IFPTI will be adding new courses throughout the year. Additions to the 2010 schedule will be posted on the Institute’s website.

All costs associated with training and travel will be reimbursed by IFPTI to help state and local food protection professionals overcome the limited funding and travel budgets that often have prevented them from attending training.

Since July 2009, approximately 300 state, local, tribal and territorial food regulators have enrolled in courses delivered through IFPTI. Joanne Sax, Environmental Protection Specialist with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, took “Applications of Basics of Inspection and Investigation” to add wholesale food manufacturing know-how to her existing set of skills related to retail food inspection.

“I appreciated learning more about food laws and safety procedures as well as having the opportunity to network with students from other states,” Sax said. “I performed many hands-on exercises to reinforce the concepts taught during the course, and the lessons on report writing I applied in my job immediately.”

“Based on the attendance and response we have received thus far, it is clear there is a need for improved training that meets U.S. food safety standards,” said Gerald Wojtala, Acting Executive Director of IFPTI and Past-President of the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO). “Our 2010 curriculum schedule meets needs across all experience levels in food safety and addresses the critical issues that all food protection professionals face routinely,” he added. Wojtala also noted that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been instrumental in partnering with IFPTI by providing course instruction to assist state and local regulatory officials.
