Accreditation

IOIA offers inspector accreditation for members in 3 categories:
Crops, Livestock, and Processing.

Applicants must meet minimum criteria in the following categories:

Additional criteria are the requirement to submit a current resume and evaluation letters from all the certifiers for which they have worked, plus attending inspector training at least every 3 years. Once accredited, applicants may apply for renewal every 3 years, again meeting minimum criteria of ongoing inspector training, continuing education, a minimum amount of inspections in the category, and an updated resume. Accreditation is a voluntary program.
