FS 101 and 102

Completion of FS 101 Food Safety Microbiology & Chemistry and FS 102 Food Protection Plans: PCQI once will count for both series.

FS 102 Food Protection Plans PCQI Certificate

The Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) training requires a total of 20 contact hours. Therefore, online attendance via Zoom is required for the certification. Class will meet online every Tuesday at 4 pm Pacific for two hours, except for Weeks 3 and 4, which will be three hours each starting at 3 pm.  (Note: FS 102 is the only course in the certificate program that requires online attendance; all other courses are offered asynchronously.)

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

We do not offer CEUs.

Finally a certification course that goes well beyond the multi-day seminar. This 5 course, one year, certification program gives an in depth review of food science and food manufacturing industry in a timely and relevant manner. As a QA director for a national food sanitation firm, I felt this course was so beneficial that our firm is rolling it out to our plant sanitation managers and other corp. executives as well.
