FSPCA PCQI PCHF Part II – Blended Course – Amsterdam
FSPCA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD BLENDED COURSE
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.”
These courses are taught by the first Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA in Europe Claudio Gallottini, who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum.
NEW! FSPCA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD BLENDED COURSE

Once you begin the process, you have up to six months to complete the Part 1: Online course. Upon completion, you have six months to complete a Part 2: Instructor-Led course. We recommend you have a Part 2: Instructor-Led course identified before enrolling in Part 1: Online.
