About Inspector Boot Camp: Manufactured Food Track

This 4-hour session covers both power and technical skills, using interactive strategies with participants. Technical skills are split into training days specifically for retail-level inspectors (restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) and a separate day for manufactured-level inspectors (food processing facilities). AFDO’s goal in this training is to help state and local regulators gain free access to valuable training early in their food safety careers to build knowledge and experience.
