MGT 332: Agriculture and Food Vulnerability Assessment Training
See Also: MGT332 Brochure
This course is designed to provide agriculture and food facility managers and officials at the federal, state, county, and local levels with performance and planning-based tools to assess vulnerabilities for all agriculture and food facilities. Facilities and operations considered “at risk” can reduce or eliminate that risk through appropriate planning and training. Training includes interactive exercises and case studies to stimulate problem-based learning.
This course will introduce the use of CARVER plus Shock as a practical tool for assessment and identification of critical nodes within an agricultural or food processing facility. Federal and industry guidelines that provide an assessment framework for individual facilities will also be discussed. The course will train participants in the application of CARVER plus Shock through a variety of practical exercises to stimulate problem-based learning.
The target audience for this course is the agriculture and the food industry, as well as officials at the federal, state, county, and local levels. Other participants from local communities involved in food and agriculture security planning may also be included in the course audience depending on local needs.
