Our Curriculum Initiatives are broad in scope, offering undergraduate and graduate courses, curriculum guides and topical learning modules.
Written by Neal R. Fredrickson, Abbey Nutsch and Justin Kastner, the FPDI Food Defense Curriculum provides educators with learning outcomes, learning experiences, learning assessments, over 125 combined readings, multi-media tools, and experiences to use in the classroom.
Our intention is for educators to use this curriculum as a guide, to modify for their particular area, level, and needs. The curriculum is comprised of 7 units each on a different food defense topic. Educators may use any of the units individually to develop topical course materials, or they may download the complete curriculum that includes all 7 units plus the curriculum introduction.

Topical Learning Modules
The FPDI online modules are simple training videos that explain food protection and defense concepts. They are short, didactic presentations intended for anyone seeking to learn more about food defense: food industry personnel, government officials, and academic educators and researchers.
