THIS WORKSHOP MEETS THE FDA “QUALIFIED INDIVIDUAL” TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOD HYGIENE AND FOOD SAFETY
IN THE FSMA PREVENTIVE CONTROLS FOR HUMAN FOOD RULE, 21 CFR 117.4
This one-day overview course is especially designed for food processing startups and entrepreneurs, line workers, QC personnel, sanitors, supervisors, and other employees of food processing operations. It provides a great one day overview of food safety, and was designed to prepare participants to take the 2.5 day FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Course (“PCQI Certification”).
Participants will spend one-third day learning about food safety prerequisite programs, which are used to ensure food products are free from non-life threatening objectionable contaminants. This includes the recently updated good manufacturing practices, which are required by both state and federal food regulators. Another third of the workshop will focus on HACCP, or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, a system utilized to prevent significant health-threatening food hazards. Participants will learn about preliminary tasks, key principles, and implementing a HACCP/Food Safety Plan. The final third of course material will be devoted to introducing participants to the new Food Safety Modernization Action regulation, Preventive Controls for Human Food. During the workshop, interactive team exercises and electronic participant response technology will be deployed to enhance the learning experience.
