The Preventive Controls for Human Food Qualified Individual Training Courses on the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) Training curriculum will train fresh-cut processors to develop food safety plans that are in compliance with the Preventive Controls for Human Food rule. The final rule requires companies subject to the rule to have a “preventive controls qualified individual” on staff (or consultant) trained to an FDA-approved curriculum.

The current FSPCA FDA-approved curriculum was designed for food processing facilities, and this training program will be applicable to food processors and FDA-registered companies that cut fresh produce in their facilities.  United Fresh will deliver this FDA-approved training for fresh-cut processors using curricula from the FSPCA to address the regulations. 

The training session will be taught by Dr. David Gombas and a second FSPCA lead instructor. This training will be of specific value to the fresh-cut produce sector, as United Fresh has developed fresh-cut example plans that have been reviewed by FDA and will be used to ensure these sessions are relevant to fresh-cut companies. 

The first three sessions will be preventive controls for human food qualified individual participant courses and the final training will be a Train-the-Trainer combo course.
