Who should attend

The Preventive Controls Rule requires that each facility have Preventive Control Qualified Individuals for the development and implementation of Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Foods. The course provides training and certification in order to meet those requirements. The curriculum is designed for food industry professionals with responsibility for a company’s Food Safety Plan in terms of  development, implementation or  maintenance of food safety activities.  It is suitable for those working in any area of the facility where preventive controls will be used (quality, sanitation, operations, logistics, maintenance, etc), or where knowledge of the rule will be helpful (sales, marketing, upper management).​
