SEMINAR: Quality Control Training, Oct 18

SEMINAR: Quality Control Training, Oct 18

The purpose of the seminars is to familiarize participants with the most efficient way to receive and check a load of produce on arrival to determine quality. Topics to be covered include: determining the quality and condition upon arrival, determining if an inspection on the load is warranted and reviewing the requirements of the federal inspection program and other independent inspection services.

There is also training on how to interpret Canadian and U.S. grade standards and their corresponding inspection manuals. A properly trained and up-to-date receiver will save an organization time and money by requesting inspections that will be of maximum use to you when negotiating a claim with a shipper. Inspections that “don’t score”, cost companies money.

This seminar is a three day seminar, Day 2 is on Oct 25 and Day 3 is on Nov 1.
