PCQI Food Safety Training for Chinese Food Imports into the US

$750 (4,933 CNY)

ImEPIK offers a comprehensive virtual online training program for those who are seeking to export their products to the United States from China. The regulatory landscape of food safety is continually evolving, and it can be hard to keep up with these rapid changes.

All food producers seeking to export to the United States must comply with the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Signed in 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued FSMA to create a proactive approach that shifts the focus to preventing food safety problems instead of reacting to outbreaks. However, USDA-regulated meat, poultry, and processed egg producers are the exception to this rule, as they adhere to USDA inspections and guidelines.

One of the FSMA’s seven rules is that manufacturers must employ “current good manufacturing practice, hazard analysis, and risk-based preventative controls for human food.” Under the umbrella of this rule is the standard of having a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) on staff for all food manufacturers to ensure food safety regulatory compliance. The most effective way to obtain this knowledge to meet FSMA requirements is by completing a PCQI course that teaches you both the skills and expertise you need.

The United States imports a significant amount of fruits, vegetables, and fish from China. The FDA has specific safety measures for seafood, including thorough inspection of imported food products and processing facilities.

Self-Paced on your own schedule, 100% online. No webinars, no online classroom.

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.

The FDA, not FSPCA, is the regulatory body that sets the standardized curriculum for the PCQI training requirements. The FSPCA is simply another training organization and the FDA does not require that you receive training from them. Our FDA recognized course has been recommended by FDA and independent auditors alike to help their clients comply with Food Safety Plan requirements.

Yes! This course is designed using the FDA approved curriculum, but without the mind-numbing effect of sitting in a classroom lecture for hours on end. It is broken up into 10 modules that include voice-over-narration, animated videos, and interactive exercises complimented by an online study manual. By the end of the course, you will have completed practical situations that culminate with the development of a food safety plan.

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.
