Taking this course will not result in your farm being "GAPs Certified". GAPs certification is done by a third party (e.g. USDA, Primus, Global GAP) and involves the successful completion of an on-farm audit.
It is also important to consider that the GAPs Online Produce Safety Training Course is not currently equivalent to the required supervisor training described in the FSMA Produce Safety Rule 21 CFR Subpart C § 112.22(c). This GAPs Online Produce Safety Training Course may, however, satisfy training requirements as described in the FSMA Produce Safety Rule in §§ 112.21(a) and (b).
The Produce Safety Alliance website maintains a list of upcoming Grower Training Courses that meets the requirement in § 112.22(c) of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule.
