Course Description

In this exciting updated version, ImEpik developed a 20-hour self-paced PCQI Online course, which is the first in a FSMA series, designed to prepare Preventive Control Qualified Individuals (PCQIs) for FSMA and the Preventive Control for Human Food (PCHF) rule. The ImEpik PCQI Online course is an interactive, assessment-based online learning environment that trains food-processing employees for the global food manufacturer industry. This course contains material meeting the alternative training allowed in the PCHF rule, plus additional interactive content and ability to take the course at your own pace.

PCQI Online V2.0’s Newest Features:

  • Our new version is updated with FDA Guidance on the FSMA PCHF Rule since its original release in 2015
  • Learners can choose sector-specific scenarios in baking, produce, dairy, cannabis-infused edible/ confectionary (chocolate bar), or ready-to-eat to practice and apply their knowledge.

The course supports the learning experience with voice-over-narration, animated videos, sequential content, remediation and interactive exercises complimented by an online study manual covering specific parts of the regulations, cGMPs, and supplementary material for each module.

Working through product-specific case scenarios, trainees are placed in practical plant situations that culminate with development of a food safety plan outline and a comprehensive final examination. With a computer or tablet and an internet connection, the PCQI Online training experience allows professionals to be trained as a food safety qualified individual using a cost-effective online solution that uses strong instructional methods with proven assessment techniques to meet or exceed traditional learning method courses.
