Growing Idaho's Food Processing Industry

The College of Southern Idaho's (CSI) TAACCCT Round 3 project—Growing Idaho's Food Processing Industry— addresses Option Two: Work-based Training Opportunities and Option Four: Career Pathways for Adult Workers. The project also meets all three pre-conditions and addresses all six core elements. CSI proposes the creation of a new degree program to meet the needs of the area's major employers (Food Manufacturers; NAICS code 311). CSI's Food Processing Management degree program will offer stackable and latticed credentials including Postsecondary Certificates (PC), Technical Certificates (TC), Associates of Applied Science Degrees (AAS), and Associate of Science Degrees (AS). The Food Processing Management Program will have areas of emphasis in food safety, quality assurance, food processing, and management. The proposed program will also involve the innovative delivery of English as a Second Language (ESL).
