Taking the Human Food Part 2 training with FIC was monumental in clarifying for me the differences between Risked Based Preventive Controls and HACCP and for gaining a more thorough understanding of Preventive Controls overall. I thank Bita for doing an outstanding job of guiding the class through the training material, through many thought-provoking discussions, and for providing answers in detail to all the questions asked about the Preventive Controls rule. I very much enjoyed the virtual class, and I highly recommend it!

I couldn’t have been happier with my decision to take the blended PCQI training with FIC. Excellent instruction in an excellent learning environment while simultaneously being the most affordable route to being a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual.
