Plant Health – Online Training

This March 2022, members of national plant protection organizations across East and West Africa will be learning about plant pest identification systems. Over 100 people in the regions are part of this cohort of online learners.

The online training is provided for free at www.SPSCourses.com by the Food Safety Network, a part of the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. The AFSI partners are facilitating the training program by creating support systems for learners’ regular access, and by organizing interactive learning activities such as live virtual meetings for Q&A and discussions. Future months will include a virtual discussion board that will house interactions for this community of practice.

The “Plant Pest Identification Systems” module is part of a 14 month training program on plant health. Each month, this cohort of employees from NPPOs in East Africa and West Africa will independently complete the online learning module, and will share questions, issues, and other debriefing discussions on a videoconference at the end of the month. The full schedule is below:
