2020 GAP Annual Training Online 

During the COVID-19 response many GAP meetings were cancelled or postponed.  We realize this created a challenge for those growers who wish to attend and needed training for Certification.  As an alternative in 2020, GAP Connections has an online option to receive 2020 Annual GAP Training. We hope this platform will be beneficial to growers needing to complete training during this challenging time.

GAP Training must be completed by June 30, 2020 for all growers participating in the GAP Connections Certification Program. GAP Connections will not record training for all other growers after June 30, 2020.

Growers completing the online Annual GAP Training will need to watch two videos and complete a post video quiz.  Growers will need to successfully achieve a 100% score on the quiz to have 2020 GAP Training recorded.

To locate the training a grower must login into GAP Connections and navigate to to the Training Section on the Grower Dashboard. There is a link for Online Training.

Once a 100% is earned, GAP Training is recorded on the Grower Training Report. Go back to the Grower Dashboard or click Menu in the upper right hand corner and navigate to Training. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for training to show. 

If you have any difficulty locating or completing the Online Training please call GAPC at 865.622.4606.
