FAPC has the expertise to meet the needs and demands of the food and agricultural industries. Take advantage of the educational programs, trainings and seminars at FAPC to help you stay on the forefront of cutting-edge value-added processing and technology.
Chuck Willoughby, business and marketing relations manager, said FAPC has the experience and knowledge to help someone refresh skills and renew a certification, or help a entrepreneur navigate a new business endeavor.
"FAPC has developed a nationally recognized reputation for pertinent quality trainings, especially those that are food safety related," Willoughby said. "Nearly all of the training participants work for companies that also received technical and business assistance, whether it be at their respective facilities or in the pilot plant at FAPC. The relationship FAPC has with the food industry, particularly in Oklahoma, is unique."
The FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food (Part 2) is offered twice throughout the year: April 25 and July 27. This blended course has two parts. Those who complete the Part 1: Online are eligible to attend a one-day Part 2: Instructor-led course taught by an FSPCA Lead instructor. You must complete both parts to receive the FSPCA Certificate of Training.
The new FSMA regulation requires every processing facility to have a trained resource person or Preventive Controls Qualified Individual who has completed a specialized training course such as the one developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) that is recognized by the FDA. This person will oversee the implementation of the facility’s food safety plan and other key tasks.
This blended course has two parts. Those who complete the Part 1: Online are eligible to attend a one-day Part 2: Instructor-led course taught by an FSPCA Lead instructor. You must complete both parts to receive the FSPCA Certificate of Training.
