The IOIA Training Institute is pleased to offer organic inspection courses through our online Self-Directed Learning (SDL) program.
Courses are currently offered at the 100 and 200 level and are geared toward working inspectors and reviewers. The self-paced nature of the platform
allows each participant to complete course outcomes on their own timeline and at their own convenience.
We are currently working on more courses, to be offered in 2022.
This first course introduces the players, roles, and documents in the Canada Organic Regime, explains the relationship between all COR documents, and examines the regulatory and administrative documents in more detail. Packaging and labeling for all organic products is covered as part of the organic regulation. Equivalency agreements with other countries are also discussed for all commodity groups.
This online course was developed by IOIA with the American Grassfed Association (AGA) to prepare experienced organic dairy inspectors to perform an “add-on” AGA inspection at the same time as an organic inspection, or as a stand-alone AGA inspection.
