MDARD will be hosting a 2023 Michigan Standardized Trainers Annual Training Conference. The training is limited to MDARD food safety trainers and Local Health Department standardized trainers in the Food Program.

The training is free, and a certificate and eight contact hours will be provided to each attendee. MDARD will pay the facility directly for the training, training rooms, lodging, dinner on September 27, breakfast on September 28, and snacks for breaks. MDARD has signed a contract with the RAM Center for everyone attending to have a room to themselves, although the rooms do share bathrooms.

The agenda will focus on the role of the standardized trainers in training new employees, risk-based inspections and active managerial control, recalls/sampling and foodborne illness response and other topics to promote consistency within food establishments in Michigan.

Standardized Trainers can register for the training by emailing Rodney Blanchard at blanchardr1@michigan.gov to confirm attendance.
