What Our Client’s Say…

“I had SQF experience before taking this course but the course made me more aware again of things that I needed to know. After taking this course, my awareness and sense of urgency regarding production of a safe product was heightened. The course material was presented well. Christina did a very good job in keeping me engaged. There was a lot of material and I was not bored for even 1 millisecond. I was kept interesting by Christina discussing real life situations as they applied to the elements and concepts of SQF. I am incorporating SQF into my weekly Operations Meeting as well as my Departmental Meetings with the hourly associates. Many times I will quote my notes which were quotes from Christina. She is very thorough and to the point. We had our on audit recently and we were. I was very prepared largely due to taking this course. There were very few surprises. In addition, everything pertaining to the course location, lodging, etc was great. Thanks again Christina for your help.”
