The Rutgers Food Innovation Center (FIC) has scheduled training in Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF) at the Kearny Point Industrial Park on June 8-10. The course includes 20 hours of classroom instruction over two and a half days.
Participants will earn an official Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) certificate for becoming an FDA-recognized “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual” (PCQI) with the credentials for creating a FDA Food Safety Plan with hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls.
Donna Schaffner, associate director of Food Safety, Quality Assurance and Training at the Rutgers FIC will lead the training program.
PCHF training is appropriate for food marketers and food processing managers in the functions of quality assurance, plant operations, sanitation, and other functions; service providers and consultants; public health inspectors; and also brokers and distributors, Schaffner said.
She has taught PCHF, HACCP and various other food safety classes for more than 20 years, and has been through Train-the-Trainer programs by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance, the International HACCP Alliance, the Seafood HACCP Alliance and the Association of Food and Drug Officials as a HACCP trainer.
Training on June 8-10 will be held at 78 John Miller Way, Kearny NJ, 07032. This is within the Kearny Point Industrial Park, and just a few minutes away from Exit 15E on the New Jersey Turnpike. Wiss & Company, LLP, Accountants & Consultants, will be a sponsor of the training program.
