Get Certified: This course developed by the FSPCA is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; upon successful completion of this course, attendees will be issued a Certificate of Training verifying qualified attendees as PCQIs (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual).

Why it Matters: The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food  regulation (referred to as the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation) is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States. The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual” who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”.
