  • Part 1 is online training through IFPTI (separate registration). 
  • Part 2 is an instructor-led virtual training with Food Safety & Quality Services scheduled for April 6, 2023.  

Attendees will get a certificate of completion from FSPCA.  This blended course provides an alternate way to get your certificate. Once registered, take the online course at your convenience (estimated time is 8-12 hours) and complete  the instructor-led virtual course with us .


Learn how to develop a FSMA compliant preventive controls food safety plan.  This course covers all of the FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food requirements and we discuss how these requirements apply to your organization and food products.  Topics include:

  • Identifying 3 types of hazards (biological, chemical and physical)
  • Prerequisite programs – what they are and how they support your food safety plan
  • How to conduct a hazard analysis
  • How to develop preventive controls for significant hazards
  • Monitoring preventive controls and corrective actions
  • Validation vs. verification
  • Recordkeeping

Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual” or PCQI and will give you a recognized certificate from FSPCA.


Be sure to complete Part 1 of the online training through IFPTI before the first day of the instructor-led virtual course as you will need to present your enrollment ticket from the online course (Part 1) at the beginning of the instructor-led course (Part 2) in order to complete your training and get the FSPCA certificate.
