Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Training: Preventive Controls for Human Food

January 7 - January 9, 2019

Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Training: Preventive Controls for Human Food
This 2.5 day Class will fulfill FDA Requirements for FSMA Qualified Individual Training.

The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human 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". 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."

Course description provided b y the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance

The course is ideally suited for:
  • Federal Regulators/Inspectors
  • State Regulators/Inspectors
  • Management
  • Production
  • QA/QC
  • Maintenance Personnel
These courses are taught by Lead Instructors trained by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum. CCE Harvest NY's Barbara Williams will be one of the instructors at this event.

Registration and payments must be received by Tuesday, December 18, 2018. The course is limited to the first 30 registrants.

Upcoming Events

Fluid Milk Processing for Quality and Safety (Online Course)

July 1 - December 31, 2018

This online workshop (with rolling registration) is designed for those involved and interested in fluid milk processing and testing with the intent of providing the tools to support and improve on quality assurance/control and food safety programs for bottled milks. While the course design assumes participants have some prior knowledge of dairy microbiology & processing (e.g., Dairy Science & Sanitation Course), critical concepts will be reviewed and expanded on for those who do not. This course can be taken as a stand-along program, but it also fulfills the core training requirement of a Cornell Dairy Foods Certificate for Fluid Milk Processing for Quality and Safety after all required prerequisite courses have been taken (e.g., Dairy Science & Sanitation, HACCP, HTST).

Food Safety: Critical for the Success of NY Farms

The CDC estimates that each year 48 million people get sick from a foodborne illness with over 128,000 hospitalized. According to the Center for Food Integrity, "food safety" is the third most common food topic searched online. The threat to human health from contaminated foods also represents a major financial risk for New York agriculture.

Harvest NY specialists are leading the effort to keep consumers safe and NYS farms and processing businesses successful in the emerging world of food safety. Despite the diversity of sectors we serve, each of our program areas touch on this topic; from the 4,600+ NY dairy farms, the 64,000 dairy processing jobs, to the 8.5 million residents of New York City. Although we focus on many other issues, Harvest NY recognizes that food safety is essential for New York farmers and consumers.
