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”. This course, developed by the FSPCA, is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual”.
This course is taught by Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA, who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum.
NOTE: Virtual Sessions are administered in two parts. This registration is for Part 2 of the “Blended Course”. The certificate given upon completion is no different from an in-person course. Part 1 is administered through the FSPCA website with a cost of $208 including certificate fee. More information and registration can be found here. Part 1 registration and completion is REQUIRED before beginning Part 2, but we recommend registering for Part 2 as soon as possible to ensure you have a space in the course. Completion of Part 1 is not required to register for Part 2, only for beginning the course, not for registration.
