Preventive Controls for Human Food – Blended Course

Preventive Controls for Human Food

Blended Course - FSPCA Curriculum

Are the 2.5 day workshops too long to be away from your work? Get your PCQI (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual) certificate by completing a self-paced online training (Part 1) and a 1 Day instructor-led training (Part 2).

With the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), FDA now requires that certain activities must be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual” or PCQI who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”. Attendees who take this training will learn the skills necessary to be considered a “preventive controls qualified individual” or PCQI.
