Better Process Control School (October 2017)


Federal regulations require that each processor of low-acid or acidified foods must operate with a certified supervisor on hand at all times during processing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has selected Michigan State University as one of the authorized schools to present the Better Process Control School. Participants may choose from the two-day acidified foods program or the four-day acidified foods and low-acid canned foods program.  Students who successfully complete this course will meet FDA certification requirements.
