Perfect place for study under the supervision of the director, her dedication in helping students with great knowledge and with excellent industrial networks are reaping success stories of NACPT students.. Wish this institute would help as many students as possible with their experienced staff, who are current professionals from Pharma industries. The director and her associates are fantastic and really helps students in difficult times.. Feeling happy for being a student here, Year 2016.

It was very useful and many information was covered during this training. Year 2020.
Lecture was good, including the nutritive value of food, nutrition facts table and how it impacts on the treatment of diseases especially cannabis edibles for medical purposes. HACCP analysis was very good with details, overall. Year 2019.
The case studies and examples shared along with the dean’s much disciplined expertise really elevated our understanding of the quality control we need to be concerned about at every stage of the cannabis supply chain order to meet the highest international standards in a post-legalization world. A cross sectoral understanding of pharmaceutical and food service industries really enhanced the foundation of this course. Year 2019.
