FSPCA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD
COURSE DESCRIPTION (from the FSCPA website)
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 Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA, who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum.
This course is a prerequisite to the FSPCA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD LEAD INSTRUCTOR TRAINING course.
