The new FSMA regulation requires every processing facility to have a trained resource person or Preventive Controls Qualified Individual who has completed a specialized training course such as the one developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) that is recognized by the FDA. This person will oversee the implementation of the facility’s food safety plan and other key tasks.

This Blended Course has two parts. Those who complete the Part 1: Online are eligible to attend a one-day Part 2: Instructor-Led course taught by an FSPCA Lead instructor. You must complete both parts to receive the FSPCA Certificate of Training.

You must complete Part 1: Online before you may take this Part 2 course. When you complete Part 1: Online, you will receive an enrollment ticket and a completion email. Present either the enrollment ticket or the completion email to your Part 2 lead instructor; you will not be able to attend Part 2: Instructor-Led without providing evidence of Part 1: Online completion.
