PCQI Online Training

The food industry can be a high-turnover environment. Ensure your company is prepared for an inspection by training multiple Preventive Controls Qualified Individuals (PCQIs) on GMPs, HACCP and risk-based preventive controls.

Who Should Take This Course?

This ten-module program is for anyone in the food industry who needs to be trained in the role and responsibilities of a Preventive Control Qualified Individual (PCQI).

PCQIs must be proficient in hazard analysis, risk-based prevention and control standards as required by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

ImEPIK’s course is not only based on the FDA’s Standardized Curriculum, it was recently updated for the latest regulatory guidance and includes product-specific training scenarios.

A certificate of completion can be printed and downloaded for your records upon course completion.

FAQs

When we say the course is “100% Online,” we mean that it’s self-paced and does not require you to schedule a virtual classroom session or attend a webinar. You do the training on your time, whenever you want and from wherever you and your computer/tablet are located.

Most other PCQI offerings are either in-person courses or are partially online and require scheduling additional sessions to earn your completion certificate. ImEPIK’s course is 100% online and totally self-paced, which means you can avoid stringent schedules or limited seating in virtual classrooms.

When you complete PCQI Online, you will receive the certificate of completion that you need as defined in FSMA and required by the FDA – but it won’t be from the FSPCA. In fact, FSPCA endorsement isn’t legally required.

Your completion certificate needs only to come from an organization that utilizes the standard curriculum recognized as “adequate” by the FDA.

ImEPIK’s PCQI Online course follows the standard curriculum and goes beyond it by providing product-specific content for bakery, produce, dairy, ready-to-eat foods and cannabis-infused edibles.

At the end of the day, a certificate from the FSPCA isn’t required – just ask the inspectors and auditors who have accepted ImEPIK’s certificate of completion as proof that PCQIs have been trained.

You will automatically receive a completion certificate once you pass the final exam and there is no additional cost.

Excellent value in terms of educational content and cost. The course balanced regulation with actual implementation, and how both apply to all aspects of preventive controls and risk management.

This course is a great alternative to an in-person course. The modules combined videos, a reference manual and the real-life scenarios that helped to break up the online training.
