Are you looking to become a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI)?

Completing our course is one way to achieve that goal. Developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), this course is the standardized curriculum recognized by FDA.

Regulations for the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP), hazard analysis, and risk-based preventive controls permit only a PCQI to perform certain activities. So if you are looking for a career in safe manufacturing, processing, packing, and holding of food products, consider PCQI training today.

Successful completion of FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food requires attendance at all sessions.
