Preventive Controls for Human Foods Certification Workshop

Nittany Lion Shrine

The Preventive Controls for Human Foods Certification Workshop provides approved training (FSPCA certificate) to meet FDA requirements for PCQI (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual) for the development and implementation of HACCP based systems as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. Often referred to as HARPC, this 2 ½ day course was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance, a broad-based alliance in cooperation with the FDA. This course is presented by FSPCA approved instructors from Penn State.

Who Should Attend
The Preventive Controls Rule requires that each facility have Qualified Preventive Control individuals for the development and implementation of Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Foods.
The course provides training and certification in order to meet those requirements. The curriculum is designed for food industry professionals with responsibility for a company’s Food Safety Plan in terms of  development, implementation or  maintenance of food safety activities.  It is suitable for those working in any area of the facility where preventive controls will be used (quality, sanitation, operations, logistics, maintenance, etc), or where knowledge of the rule will be helpful (sales, marketing, upper management).

Course Details
The two and a half day course provides instruction into the development of a Food Safety Plan as required by FDA as part of Food Safety Modernization Act.  Participants will learn the key elements of a food safety plan, how to conduct a hazard analysis for biological, chemical and physical hazards, how to develop and implement risk based preventive controls (process, sanitation, allergen, and supplier) along with the appropriate verification and validation procedures, and understand the requirements of a recall plan.

This training was developed by FSPCA (Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance) and is delivered by Penn State instructors.
