The American Feed Industry Association will offer Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) training from July 24–26, 2018 as part of the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) Preventive Controls for Animal Food training in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to AFIA, the Food Safety Modernization Act requires one or more PCQIs in each facility to develop and apply an animal food safety plan. Developed by the FSPCA, the 20-hour course provides the "standardized curriculum," which is recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as adequate for PCQI training. The complete agenda can be found online, along with registration.

The course is limited to 60 registrants. Those who register by June 15, 2018 will receive the early-bird rate of US$650 for AFIA members. 

The American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists has approved the course for 10 continuing education units. Participants will receive a certificate from the FSPCA upon completion of the course.
