⌂ / Intentional Adulteration/ IAVA Lead Instructor Applicants
What can an FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment (IAVA) Lead Instructor do?
An FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment (IAVA) Lead Instructor may independently offer the FSPCA standardized curriculum (FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment Participant Course) directly to participants and issue FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment Certificates of training by following FSPCA policies to register and deliver FSPCA Participant Courses.
How can I become an FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment (IAVA) Lead Instructor?
You must complete and submit the online IAVA application to be considered as a Lead Instructor Candidate. The application process is highly selective. Applying is no guarantee that you will be accepted as an FSPCA IAVA Lead Instructor, and only the most qualified applicants will be considered as Lead Instructor Candidates.
As a component of the application, IAVA Lead Instructor Candidates will be administered a timed exam that tests the applicant’s knowledge of the final rule, “Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration” (IA rule), and FDA’s IA rule draft guidance, with a particular emphasis on vulnerability assessments.
After successful completion of the exam, a full online FSPCA IAVA Lead Instructor application must be submitted to be considered as a Lead Instructor Candidate.
Your application will be reviewed by the FSPCA Review Committee and evaluated against the selection criteria. If you are approved, you will be notified via email. The review process usually takes 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
