FDA Approved Curriculum Training: FSPCA Preventive Controls for Animal Food

Course Fee: $899

The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Animal Food regulation (referred to as the Preventive Controls for Animal Food regulation) is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for animal 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, or is otherwise qualified through job experience to develop and apply a food safety system”.  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.

Participants will receive an official FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual certificate issued by AFDO after attending this training program.

Duration: 2.5 Days/20 hours

Course Fee $899.00 for the first person and $849.00 for each person thereafter.
