From July 24-26, AFIA will host a Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) Preventive Controls for Animal Food training in Nashville, Tenn.
The Food Safety Modernization Act requires one or more PCQIs in each facility to develop and apply an animal food safety plan.
Developed by the FSPCA, the 20-hour course provides the "standardized curriculum," which is recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as adequate for PCQI training. The complete agenda can be found here.
The course is limited to 60 registrants.
Registration rates are $700 for AFIA members and $850 for non-members.
Registration closes July 13.
The American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists has approved the course for 10 continuing education units.
Participants will receive a certificate from the FSPCA upon completion of the course. For more information, visit the course website.
