They have developed a training program that provides essential food safety knowledge and tools necessary for food manufacturers to begin the process of building their Food Safety Plans.  Deibel Labs has four associates that attended FSPCA lead instructor training and, as a result, are Food Safety Preventive Controls Lead Instructors.  Deibel Labs can provide FDA recognized training to assist companies in complying with FSMA and award certificates to participants that prove PCQI training was obtained following a FDA recognized curriculum.
