Section 1: Self-paced eLearning

The Preventive Controls for Human Food Blended eLearning Course enables you to become a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) on your terms. This two-part online course provides everything required to pass your next audit, but it also features industry best practices developed right on the manufacturing floor by Alchemy Professional Services consultants capitalizing on 200 years of combined food industry experience. Part 1 consists of the 16-chapter FSPCA curriculum delivered online at your convenience.

Section 2: Virtual Instructor-Led Session

Part 2, the virtual instructor-led portion of the course, is an interactive reinforcement of the eLearning portion directed by a lead instructor from the Alchemy Professional Services team. During this session you will take a closer look at a Food Safety Plan to ensure you’re prepared to write or update your own plan to satisfy the new Preventive Controls for Human Food requirements.


In-Person Classroom Course

 

The Preventive Controls for Human Food classroom course covers the identical 16-chapter FSPCA curriculum broken out over two and a half days. Classroom attendees enjoy the benefits of peer interaction in a live classroom environment. See the complete course agenda here.

Just as with the eLearning course, classroom attendees will receive all relevant information regarding food safety audit preparation and food safety plan compliance, as well as invaluable best practices from our experienced Alchemy Professional Services consultants.

Alchemy is synonymous with training. I have known about alchemy for quite some time…this particular course was well presented, included supplemental materials, and the depth of knowledge that came from the instructors is something I don’t believe you will be able to find elsewhere. This was definitely a highly beneficial course.
