Anyone who sells eggs to individuals at a farmers market must hold an egg candling certificate. This class teaches proper egg candling procedures in line with Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) standards and gives individuals the information necessary to obtain an egg candling certificate or license. Mr. Benjamin Pitts, Georgia Department of Agriculture, will teach the class.
The recommended study materials to successfully complete the egg candling course include the Georgia Egg Law and the USDA Federal Egg-Grading Manual. Participants who successfully complete the class, which includes a written examination and a hands-on candling examination administered by GDA representatives, will be awarded an egg candling certificate.
