A free training program offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to increase food security awareness is now available online. The course is also offered on CD-ROM and in a traditional classroom setting.

The training targets federal, state, local and tribal food industry regulators, school food authorities, and nutrition assistance program operators and administrators. Representatives from the food industry and individuals such as law enforcement, public health and homeland security officials are also encouraged to participate.

Traditional face-to-face training lasts approximately six hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. For a complete list of scheduled cities and dates, contact Sebastian Cianci at sebastian.cianci@cfsan.fda.gov

The online course version is hosted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at www.fda.gov/ora/training/orau/FoodSecurity/startpage.html.

CD-ROM versions of the course are also available from Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) district and regional offices.
