To comply with the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), every food facility’s management team must include a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI).

Under FSMA, this individual must have a prescribed combination of education, training and experience on the manufacturing, processing, packing and holding of food in a clean and safe manner. The law also requires a prescribed, multi-day training regimen that covers principles of food hygiene and food safety, including employee health and hygiene.

The NCA PCQI Training Course, offered in partnership with ToxStrategies, meets FSMA requirements. Participants will receive a PCQI certificate.
