Join us this December in Chicago for 5 full days of FSMA-related training.
The training lineup features our most popular courses.

Food Defense Coordinator (2 days)
FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food (2.5 days)
HACCP Integration for FSMA Compliance (.5 day)

Food Safety Week is the perfect year-end training event for any food manufacturing, storage & distribution, and food-contact packaging facility working toward FSMA compliance. Individuals whose facilities are required to register with FDA - especially QA managers, HACCP practitioners, food safety coordinators, plant managers, and others responsible for overseeing their company's food safety plan - will not want to miss this full week of training. 

Food Defense Coordinator

Design a food defense program to mitigate intentional adulteration and meet FSMA requirements.

Food defense isn't a new concept, but it is a new requirement that all food facilities must meet due to FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. Challenge how you would handle intentional adulteration in your food plant with the help of our case-study workshops. Our completely renovated course content relates directly back to your customer requirements, the FSMA final ruling, and GFSI certification standards. Learn how to design a comprehensive food defense plan that meets FDA's newly-imposed regulations with our easy-to-navigate course content and participant guide. Become an AIB Certified Food Defense Coordinator by achieving a score of 80% or higher on the online certification exam within 30 days of course completion.

FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food

Achieve FSMA compliance with a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) on board.

FDA-recognized materials and FSPCA-trained lead instructors prepare you to meet the new FSMA PCQI requirement. Learn to develop and apply risk-based preventive controls that meet FSMA's requirements for a complete food safety system. Upon completion of the course, you can print a copy of your certificate issued by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) to show that you've completed FDA-recognized PCQI training.

Download FSPCA's worksheets to document your product description, hazard analysis, and preventive controls.

HACCP Integration for FSMA Compliance

Transition from HACCP to a FSMA-compliant food safety plan.

Modify your current HACCP plan to meet FSMA's food safety plan requirements. You'll fully understand FSMA's preventive controls requirements and be able to reconcile differences in your HACCP plan. Fill the gaps and transition to an audit-ready food safety plan now!

Your improved plan will address additional hazards, assign appropriate preventive controls (process, allergen, sanitation, supply-chain, other) and provide justification, and identify responsible parties.

After this full week of training, you'll know how to:

  • Complete a vulnerability assessment and choose appropriate physical and/or procedural countermeasures that address identified risks
  • Devise a crisis management program and create scenarios to test your facility's readiness
  • Modify traditional recall programs to deal with intentional contamination events
  • Develop employee food defense training sessions that meet FDA's expectations
  • Create a food safety plan (HARPC plan)
  • Validate preventive controls
  • Review records for implementation and effectiveness
  • Review corrective actions
  • Perform required reanalysis
  • Apply FDA guidance documents to your product and process
  • Align HACCP's preliminary steps with the HARPC Food Safety Plan
  • Reassess your existing HACCP hazard analysis to address additional requirements under HARPC
