FSPCA Training - Gainesville
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) represents the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws for more than 70 years. The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) was formed to assist the regulated industry to comply with requirements of the Preventive Controls for Human Food Rule.
FDA has recognized this course as the “standardized curriculum” for the Preventive Controls for Human Foods Rule. Successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements to become a “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual.”
Under the Preventive Controls for Human Foods Rule, the responsibilities of a preventive controls qualified individual include to perform or oversee:
- Preparation of the Food Safety Plan
- Validation of the Preventive Controls
- Records Review
- Reanalysis of the Food Safety Plan
This hands-on course will teach participants how to develop and document a Food Safety Plan based on the requirements of FSMA's Preventive Controls for Human Foods Rule for their specific operations.
Breakout sessions are structured to teach participants how to identify and prevent food safety hazards, monitor hazard reduction procedures, develop control measures, and methods to document and verify the results of their efforts.
The fee for the training is $500 for industry participants. A reduced fee of $400 is available for government/academic employees that make prior arrangements. If you are a member of FFVA, you may also attend at the $400 rate. (Not sure if you're a member? Contact Sonia Tighe at 321-214-5245 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
