Free Online Training Offered by the CDC:
CDC’s e-Learning on Environmental Assessment of Foodborne Illness Outbreaks is a free online course to help you prepare to serve on a team investigating foodborne illness outbreaks in restaurants and other food service venues. Learn and practice skills such as interviewing in an online virtual environment. Continuing education units (CEUs) are available. Check out the new promo video (2 minutes).

CDC’s new National Voluntary Environmental Assessment Information System (NVEAIS) is a surveillance system for jurisdictions that inspect and regulate restaurants and other food venues such as banquet facilities, schools, and other institutions. The system provides an avenue to capture underlying environmental assessment data that describes what happened and how events most likely led to a foodborne illness outbreak. State and local food regulatory programs are encouraged to join.

First Complete Model Pool Code Now Available! –CDC has launched the nation’s first voluntary guidelines based on science and best practices for improving health and safety at swimming pools and other aquatic venues: the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) 1st Edition. States and localities can use the MAHC to create or update existing pool codes to reduce risk for outbreaks, drowning, and pool-chemical injuries. Check out the MAHC code; the annex with scientific explanations; sample forms, and materials including the MAHC fact sheet, infographic, and web button. The Conference for the Model Aquatic Health Code is accepting change requests for the 2nd edition of the MAHC through February 19, 2015.
