PCQI Food Safety Training for Filipino Food Imports into the US

(₱ 36017.76)

Obtaining the status as a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (or PCQI) in the Philippines is required by the United States Food and Drug Administration to manufacture and export goods to the United States. There are different strict standards that must be followed and they can vary by industry. So, those who seek training as a PCQI in the Philippines need to be aware of the regulations and what type of products the company plans to export.

The right training for PCQI in the Philippines can reduce costs, mitigate risks, enhance processes, and boost food safety for consumers in the United States. The FDA has a comprehensive guide for what products can be exported to the US that includes everything from fruits and vegetables to additives and condiments. The FDA may perform inspections of goods upon arrival, so proper notification of expected export shipments is required.

Restricted or Limited Goods from the Philippines

Industries that may have restrictions or limitations placed on their exports to the United States include:

  • Agriculture
  • Livestock and byproducts
  • Some types of seafood and shellfish

Each product will be reviewed and placed into one of three categories: low risk, medium risk, or high risk. Each of these categories carries different testing, reporting, and documentation requirements.

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.
