Producer Training

If you are considering implementing the Canadian Verified Sheep Program, or simply looking for some additional information, the next step is to participate on the Producer Training.  The training outlines the use of the Producer Manual and how to implement the program on your farm.  While the Canadian Verified Sheep Program Manual provides the good production practices used to reduce the risk of a food safety hazard, the way those practices are used in the unique management practices of your farm may differ from that of your neighbours farm.  The training goes into the detail of the specific good production practices and record keeping required for the program and explains in more detail how some of the practices are used.  The training is required before you can request an audit for certification and may also be required for provincial funding for on-farm food safety.

There are currently two ways to participate in Producer Training:

1.      In-Person Producer Training Sessions

There are currently no upcoming training sessions, but please check back for any upcoming training sessions or contact your provincial sheep association to express interest in an in-person training session.

2.      Online Training
