The Better Process Control Schools (BPCS) certify supervisors of thermal processing systems, acidification and container closure evaluation programs for low-acid and acidified canned foods. This school satisfies the training requirements specified in both the FDA and USDA regulations.

Cornell University will be holding the next BPCS course remotely on October 19 - 21, 2021 for the health and safety of each student.
