Kaml C, Fogarty KJ, Wojtala G, Dardick W, Bateson A, Bradsher JE, Weiss CC


In response to the recognized need for a training system to support an integrated food safety system in the U.S., the International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI) in Battle Creek, Michigan, designed a career-spanning curriculum framework. IFPTI collaborated with a national curriculum team consisting of regulatory officials and university academics. The curriculum framework encompasses and organizes existing professional development for the estimated 45,000 federal, state, and local food regulators in the U.S. into efficient, standards-driven learning paths. This article describes the development process leading to an integrated national food protection training curriculum framework.
