Dr. Daniel Engeljohn
Day and Time: 
Summer schedule coming soon
University of Arizona Campus Agricultural Center, Tucson

Federal food safety regulations for all foods except meat and poultry mandate that each manufacturing firm must rely upon a preventive controls qualified individual receiving instruction in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls in a food safety system.

Participants will receive instruction in the regulatory requirements specific to the design features of a food safety system for preventive controls for human food. 

Successful completion of this training meets the regulatory requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.” This workshop fulfills the “standardized curriculum” recognized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the content of this workshop is accredited by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance

Schedule: Summer schedule coming soon. Workshop meets for three days: 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Day 1 and Day 2, 8 a.m. - noon on Day 3.

Meals and all workshop materials are included in registration fee. Participants who successfully complete the workshop and are present for all aspects of the training workshop will also receive a certificate and seal from the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance, a digital badge and a certificate of completion from University of Arizona Continuing & Professional Education.

Students will also be eligible for 2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which may be purchased for an additional fee after successful completion of the workshop.
