IOIA Training Institute

The IOIA Training Institute has served increasingly diverse audiences since 1993. The IOIA training program started as a rigorous inspector training, with both new and experienced inspectors combined into the same classes. That narrow focus quickly expanded to include specialized courses for a wide variety of audiences.

Over the past 20 years, the Institute has grown into the most versatile and comprehensive organic training program in the world. It includes in-person trainings, webinars, and static resources, such as Organic Inspection Manuals and on-line resources. Through partnerships, alliances, and our staff of multi-lingual trainers, IOIA responds to the needs of the organic sector. IOIA has provided in-house training for educational institutions, extension staff, government agencies, certification agencies, for-profit companies, and many others.
