The course is self-paced and completely online so you complete it on your own time, from anywhere! Requirements include watching short lecture videos and completing self-tests (no grade for the class). This non-credit course must be completed within 10 weeks from starting it.

USDA - Food Safety Information Basics for Handling Food Safely
Reading this USDA fact sheet fulfills an MG requirement for food handling. When coordinating carry-in, covered dish, and/or pot-luck dinners, it is recommended that event leaders communicate (i.e., provide fact sheet) food preparation safety guidelines to the individual food provider(s).
Fact Sheet - Basics for Handling Food Safely. When you have finished reading the entire fact sheet, you may count this as one (1) CE. When entering it on the VMS, use "Food Safety Guidelines" as the title.

It is so important for all of us who bring food to any of our events to read this information. State MGV Coordinator Pam Bennett says it is mandatory, and has indicated that reading this Fact Sheet can replace having to attend a session on Food Safety.

Sick Plants and a Hungry World
Targeted to Master Gardeners and others interested in learning about stories of plant disease from a world and historical perspective.  Modules cover topics such as the Disease Triangle, Irish potato famine, and bioterrorism through reading assignments and self-tests.   The course is available for ten weeks from the time participants register for the course.  It is a non-credit OSU course and no grade is given; but successful completion counts for 10.0 hours of Master Gardener continuing education credit. The modules are self-paced and participants need not complete all the modules at once. A certificate of completion from the Office of Continuing Education is awarded upon completion. Link to course information

First Detector Training
The National Plant Diagnostic Network promotes the early detection of high risk, exotic and emerging plant pests through enhanced diagnostics, education and response exercise scenarios. The NPDN was established in 2002 as a collective partnership between Land Grant University plant disease and pest diagnostic facilities across the US. First Detector Training promotes awareness and early detection of exotic pests in the field. First detectors include County Agents, Crop Advisors, Growers, and Master Gardeners. Online training consists of six approximately 30-minute modules, for 3 hours of continuing education credit. The modules are self-paced and participants need not complete all the modules at once. Upon successful completion of the training, First Detectors receive a certificate of training completion. NPDN First Detectors Training Site. Once on the site, create a new account to log in if you do not yet have an account, and take and complete the six Crop Biodiversity Course modules and quizes. After you are a certified First Detector, edit your profile on the MGV Management System to indicate an interest as a certified First Detector.
