Become a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Today!

"Culturing Knowledge Through Training & Education"

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the most extensive change to food safety laws in 70 years and will shift the industry to a preventive or proactive approach to food contamination. The new regulations require certain activities to 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 supports your company’s objectives to comply with FSMA and provides FDA-recognized training for your designated Preventive Controls Qualified Individual. The standardized course was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) in partnership with FDA. Cherney’s trainers successfully completed the FSPCA lead instructor training and are Food Safety Preventive Controls Lead Instructors. 

The course is intended for:
Quality and Management, including directors, managers, supervisors and practitioners, who will be responsible for managing, overseeing, or implementing the company’s Food Safety Plan under FSMA. Any personnel seeking additional training on FSMA and preventive controls. It is recommended to have prior GMP and HACCP training and/or experience.
