PCQI Online Training

There’s more than one way to get trained as a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI), and with ImEPIK, you can do it 100% online.

PCQI Online includes the FDA’s Standard Curriculum and the food safety fundamentals all food processing employees need. PCQI Online is online, completely interactive, and based on real-life food production scenarios.

When you enroll in PCQI Online, you’ll get lessons on:

  • cGMPs and HACCP
  • Preventive controls (e.g. process, allergen, supply chain)
  • Developing a food safety plan (e.g. verification & validation procedures, developing a recall plan, and recordkeeping procedures)

Who Should Take This Course?

This ten-module program is for any personnel in an FDA-regulated food processing facility responsible for the food safety plan.

Typically, managers, supervisors, and quality control leads take this course, as well as those seeking to advance to those positions. However, this is also good training for food safety teams, especially to ensure adequate staff coverage during crises like a pandemic. We’ve had companies of all sizes train multiple PCQIs to ensure that one is available on every shift.

Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll immediately gain access to your completion certificate at no additional cost, and be able to download it instantly.

Other training providers say their courses are the only “official” way to become a PCQI in the eyes of the FDA – this simply isn’t true. The statute that references training explicitly allows for “equivalent” training, which is why ImEPIK has taken the FDA’s Standard Curriculum and created a more convenient online training option.

Excellent value in terms of educational content and cost. The course balanced regulation with actual implementation, and how both apply to all aspects of preventive controls and risk management.

This course is a great alternative to an in-person course. The modules combined videos, a reference manual and the real-life scenarios that helped to break up the online training.
