The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires facilities processing any type of animal food (complete feed or ingredients) to comply with new current good manufacturing practices and to implement a written animal food safety plan developed and overseen by a "preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI)." The rule defines a PCQI to mean a “qualified individual who has successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls at least equivalent to that received under a standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by FDA, or is otherwise qualified through job experience to develop and apply a food safety system.” Therefore, a PCQI may be qualified by successfully completing this training under a standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by FDA or by job experience. The course content will provide knowledge of the FSMA animal preventive controls rule, and training for creation of an effective animal food safety plan.

This course is intended for individuals needing Preventive Controls Qualified Individual designation to create Food Safety Modernization Act Hazard Analysis Risk Based Preventive Control plans for their animal food facilities. A certificate of completion will be given by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance.
