  • Better Process Control School: 
    • The Better Process Control School (BPCS), offered by The Ohio State University's Wilbur A. Gould Food Industries Center, is required by FDA and USDA-FSIS for processors of low-acid and acidified foods. These processors must operate with a certified individual on-site at all times during processing. Upon successful completion of this four-day certificate course, supervisors of thermal processing systems, acidified food operations, and container closure evaluation programs will be qualified to meet U.S. regulatory requirements. Additionally, BPCS is an excellent food safety training for processing and quality assurance supervisors, academics, auditors and inspectors working with low-acid and acidified foods.
