About the Cover

Effective and consistent training approaches are necessary for capacity building. The retail food regulatory workforce, however, can, lack standardized training, promotion, and retention practices. This issue’s cover article analyzed data from a training needs assessment to better understand workforce training needs overall and by job level. Using a 4-quadrant approach to plot the relevance of and exposure to validated retail food safety knowledge areas, the authors show the knowledge areas that need priority focus for training. The article demonstrates the importance of this approach and suggests that it can be applied to further assessment of training needs in the retail food regulatory workforce and beyond.
