Organic Integrity Learning Center

The National Organic Program (NOP) hosted a virtual town hall meeting engaging the organic community about the design and development of NOP’s new Organic Integrity Learning Center.  The new Learning Center will offer online training that supports the professional development and continuing education of organic certifiers, inspectors, reviewers, and other professionals working to protect organic integrity.  The virtual town hall shared an overview of the new platform, provided an opportunity for the community to ask questions, and invited feedback on planned course topics.

The Organic Integrity Learning Center will launch in Winter 2019, so we want your input.
