Program Overview

This program helps develop sanitation procedures for cannabis facilities, equipment and personnel through records, pest controls, training programs, inspection, and investigation.

All key personnel, including QAP and RP, must learn the importance of quality control systems and cannabis product testing requirements (including starter materials, in-process, bulk, stability, and finish products) to evaluate the quality of the products for release or rejection. The QAP and RP also evaluate the CofAs and take appropriate corrective actions and preventive measures. This training program provides a step-by-step guide to all aspects of sanitation requirements for corporates using relevant case studies.

Attendees may interact with the class and lead trainers for more clarifications or concerns.
