Task Force: Distance-Assisted Training Programme

Distance Assisted Training Programme (DATP)

One of the objectives of IUFoST is to provide opportunity for education and training to all professionals engaged in providing a safe, nutritious food supply to consumers. To that end, the IUFoST Distance Education Task Force developed a Distance-Assisted Training Programme (DATP). This programme is aimed at those involved in any way with the growing, production, processing, marketing, distribution, or preparation of food products who do not have formal training in food science and technology and desire to advance their career and enhance the quality of the food supply.  The DATP was begun through the need expressed by Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) food industry for enhanced training of mid-level employees already in the food sector who do not have the necessary formal education in the field or access to it.
