Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is hosting a training course this January for those seeking to obtain Preventative Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) designation to develop a Hazard Analysis Risk Based Preventative Control plan for an animal food facility mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

Held from Jan. 9-11, 2018 at the Scheman Building in Ames, IA, the course will offer education on the FSMA animal preventative controls rule and provide training on the development of an animal food safety plan.

Those who successfully complete the training course will receive a certificate showing the holder is compliant with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules.  

The course is provided in collaboration with the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA). Fees for the course are $650, including refreshment breaks and meals, and a copy of the FSPCA Preventative Controls for Animal Food manual. Registration for the course closes at midnight on Jan. 2.
