Meeting the Canadian requirements - for manufacturers

The course was recommended by my (registrar) and appeared to have been the right choice. I have to congratulate the entire staff of Accademia Qualitas and especially Ms Francine Bouchard for a very well presented training class. The course turned out (for once) to be much more than I expected. Everything can be rated as a positive, the materials, instructor, room and the food.
