Food & Consumer Safety Section
SPRING TRAINING EVENT: Applied Outbreak Investigation Training
May 3, 2018 in Billings, MT
This training is provided by the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence. The applied outbreak investigation training is designed to be an intensive, interactive, full-day course to teach epidemiological skills that are needed during foodborne illness outbreak investigations. The course is for staff who could work on an investigation, including but not limited to public health nurses and sanitarians.
This is your opportunity to expand or refresh your knowledge of foodborne outbreak investigations. Food and Consumer Safety and Communicable Disease Epidemiology sections are sponsoring this one day, in-person workshop. The instructors are from the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence. This training is designed for staff who could potentially work on an outbreak investigation. Sanitarians are invited to attend and to bring along their local public health nurse with whom they would partner during a foodborne outbreak investigation. If you are working on the retail food standards program, this training can be applied to standard 5.
The training is free, and Food and Consumer Safety will reimburse counties for mileage and hotels (at state rates). The section will also reimburse counties for travel for one public health nurse who attends with their county sanitarian.
