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.

Based on feedback from the SEA Planning Committee and participant survey results, the 2023 Shell Egg Academy events will be held as follows:

  • April 24-28, 2023Virtual 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. Virtual SEA also offers live Spanish translation.
  • Registration fees for Virtual SEA are $750 for 1 person or $1500 for UNLIMITED employees to participate along with your company’s access to the content for 6 months after the live course.
  • Registration for Virtual SEA will open in January 2023.
  • September 26-28, 2023 – In-person SEA will be held at Purdue University and is geared toward managers of egg companies and those in similar positions who are looking for deeper dive class sessions and networking on egg quality and food safety. Coursework is more of an “Egg Production & Processing 201” type of class — moving beyond basic production and processing content.
  • Registration fees will be published and registration will open for in-person SEA in the spring of 2023.
