FPDI offers a number of in-house professional development opportunities.
As well, we offer exclusively designed professional workforce development to suit your specific food defense needs – whether educator, line worker, global partner, law enforcement, QA Manager, or executive.
These exclusively created professional development opportunities are designed to fit your specific needs—offered here in the Twin Cities or at a location of your choosing. FPDI professionals can tailor these trainings to focus on just one topic or a number of topics, for example, introduction to food defense; navigation of basic food defense principles; awareness of Federal policies and regulations; recognition of vulnerabilities; creation of tailored food defense plans.
Whether academia, industry, government agency (local, state, federal), pre-conference workshop, or global training, our education professionals will work with you to design a program—one hour informational lecture; ½ day or full day workshop; 3-5 day workshop, etc.—that enhances your specific requirements and goals.
Examples of professional development opportunities include:
- Conference workshop opportunities;
- International training opportunities;
- Law enforcement professional development.
