About SEA

Shell Egg Academy is a program hosted through Purdue University Extension.

SEA is a learning experience and education opportunity for the egg production and processing industries. Through a combination of interactive classroom experiences taught by expert speakers, and hands-on learning, participants are provided the latest information on egg quality and egg safety.

Two academies are planned each year — a Virtual SEA and an in-person, and each event have their distinctions.


  • Virtual SEA is an “Egg Production & Processing 101” course that focuses on egg quality information and an interactive experience that is useful for employees who work in egg barns and processing plants – with the ease of joining from your computers. Within Virtual SEA, instruction is separated into Course 1 (Live Production) and Course 2 (Egg Processing). Virtual SEA offers live Spanish translation. Registration fees for Virtual SEA are currently $900 per course for 1 person or $3000 per course for UNLIMITED employees to participate along with your company’s access to the content for 6 months after the live course. 2024 Virtual SEA Program
  • In-person SEA is held at Purdue University and developed specifically for managers of egg companies and those in similar positions looking for a deeper dive into egg quality and food safety as well as specific table-top exercises, and enhanced, in-person networking opportunities with industry, academia, and regulatory agencies. In-person SEA builds on the knowledge and topics in virtual SEA. Fee to participate is $800/person or $650/person if you work for a government agency. Fee includes three breakfasts, 2 lunches, and one evening reception/dinner. 2023 SCHEDULE (for reference until 2024 schedule is released)
