FAQs

When we say the course is “100% Online”, we mean that it’s self-paced and does not require you to schedule a virtual classroom session or attend a webinar. You do the training on your time, whenever you want and from wherever you and your computer/tablet are located. Other PCQI offerings require scheduling Part 1 & 2 sessions to complete the course and receive a completion certificate. Ours is totally self-paced and allows you to avoid stringent scheduling or limited seating in virtual classrooms.

There is no official accreditation or course endorsement required for a PCQI course to be considered legitimate. The FDA also does not legally require a course from a specific organization to become a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI).

They do, however, ask that courses include the FDA’s Standard Curriculum and ImEPIK’s PCQI Online does include the FDA’s curriculum. There is also no requirement that your training certificate come from the FSPCA.

At the end of the day, an auditor or inspector will look at the quality of your facility’s food safety plan and how well you’re implementing your programs and protocols. Deficiencies in these areas will often indicate that a PCQI needs additional training.

Yes, when you complete PCQI Online you’ll receive a certificate of completion. This certificate is important as it is used as proof that you’ve been trained in the concepts defined under FSMA.

FDA inspectors and independent auditors alike accept the completion certificate you earn after completing PCQI Online.

You will automatically receive a certificate of completion when you are done with the course and there is no additional cost.

We get this question a lot. Technically, there is no accredited certification program for PCQIs. What does exist is a standard training curriculum developed under the direction of the FDA, and that curriculum is included in ImEPIK’s PCQI Online training.

When food safety and quality professionals claim they are “PCQI certified,” what they mean is that they’ve earned a certificate showing that they’ve completed training.

Yes, once purchased, your login information remains active and you will continue to have access to all the material. Since our course is entirely online and self-paced, you also have the option to skip through for a refresher on only certain portions.
