FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food

This 2.5 days course is aimed at those seeking to meet the training requirements for PCQI

Every site needs to have a qualified individual in charge of the food safety preventative controls system, so it is recommended that at least one individual, responsible for the preventative controls per location obtain training. Additionally, personnel (corporate or site) responsible for supplier approval will need to understand FSMA requirements for their supply chain.

This FSMA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual training course was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) and is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA.

It is taught by a Lead Instructor for the FSPCA Preventative Controls for Human Food Course. This course covers the Preventive Controls for Human Food Rule that is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

This course is specifically designed to follow the requirements set forth by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to meet Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) criteria for Preventive Controls Qualified Individual.

As an essential role within a food processing facility, the preventive controls qualified individual is crucial to the management and preparation of the food safety plan, validation of preventive controls and more.

This course also meets the Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Training requirements.

Companies subject to this rule must ensure that their food safety system is developed and applied by an individual who has successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls.
