What can an FSPCA Human Food Lead Instructor do?
An FSPCA Human Food Lead Instructor may independently offer the current version of the FSPCA standardized curriculum (FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Participant Course) directly to participants and issue FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Certificates of training by following FSPCA policies to register and deliver FSPCA Participant Courses.
How can I become an FSPCA Human Food Lead Instructor?
Lead Instructor Applicants must successfully complete the prerequisite FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Participant Course, and be issued an FSPCA certificate of training for the course. This FSPCA certificate number is required to submit an FSPCA Human Food Lead Instructor application.
Lead Instructor Applicants will be administered a timed exam that tests the applicant’s knowledge of the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation. Individuals must score an 80% or higher on the exam in order to proceed with the Lead Instructor application. Individuals who score below an 80% on the exam will be required to wait 7 days before retaking the exam. This will allow time to study the regulation and the FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food curriculum. There is no limit to how many times the exam can be taken until a passing score is achieved.
After successful completion of the exam, an online FSPCA Human Food Lead Instructor application must be submitted to be considered as a Human Food 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.
