Organic Integrity Learning Center Adds Scenario-Based Inspector Training

USDA National Organic Program (NOP) has published a new, free, online course in the Organic Integrity Learning Center. The new Scenario-Based Inspector Training is a comprehensive course teaching concrete advanced inspection skills for crop, livestock, and handling operations. This course uses a first-hand view of field-based scenarios to demonstrate how inspectors apply knowledge and skills to successfully inspect organic operations. These complex, real-world situations demonstrate the skills used to conduct successful organic inspections, including critical thinking, risk determination, effective interpersonal communication, and the observe-and-report approach.
