As part of our strategy to expand our global capacity building reach, GLOBALG.A.P. Academy has planned several new products and learning solutions.

New workshops

To complement the Farm Assurer Workshops for the three Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) scopes crops, aquaculture, and livestock, GLOBALG.A.P.’s range of training solutions open to the public has now been expanded to include 2 new workshops:

The GLOBALG.A.P. Producer Workshop introduces the IFA principles and provides a detailed explanation of the control points and compliance criteria (CPCCs) that producers must comply with in order to get certified. The 2-day workshop is ideal for anyone interested in understanding how the GLOBALG.A.P. system and the IFA work to apply safe and responsible practices on the farm,  in particular for producers or technical experts of producer groups. Learn more here.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Quality Management System (QMS) Version 5.2 & Internal Inspector Training (IIT) provides a detailed description of the requirements for setting up a GLOBALG.A.P. QMS as well as a training for internal inspectors in charge of monitoring and checking the QMS. This two-day workshop is aimed at staff responsible for implementing QMS for Option 2 producer groups, Option 1 multisite producers with QMS, internal inspector and auditors, and certification body inspectors.

More GLOBALG.A.P. training by GLOBALG.A.P. approved trainers available worldwide and in several languages

For 2020, we have planned 36 new public workshops offered in several parts of the world and in several different languages. Our aim is to make our GLOBALG.A.P. training by GLOBALG.A.P. approved trainers accessible to more and more people around the world.

Most of the workshops planned for the first half of 2020 can now be booked online via our new GLOBALG.A.P. Academy Learning Platform.

We are currently working on our first two GLOBALG.A.P. online courses covering:
