"I recently began searching for an FSSC 22000 training provider. Although I work and reside in Islamabad, Pakistan, my research clearly led me to LRQA North America and, specifically, the FSSC 22000 Lead Auditor course recently held in Chicago, Illinois. After participating in the course, I can testify that it was definitely worth travelling around the globe to attend. The rich global experience and practical approach of the trainer, combined with the well-designed and delivered course, have clarified the clauses of the ISO 22000 standard and broadened the vision of the participants to interpret it, compelling them to think outside the box with a holistic approach to addressing food safety risks."

"LRQA’s instructor, Gregg Orth, made the internal auditing class extremely enjoyable. His life and work experiences can't be learned from a book and the way he deals with interesting, sometimes difficult personalities, is a joy to watch. Everyone in attendance seemed to not only enjoy the class, but they also learned important information about the ISO standard and the proper way to audit. We have a much better understanding of our path to certification and the next few months will be exciting as we close the gaps in preparing for LRQA's next visit."

"Dear Mr. Smith,
Thank you so much for joining us last week for the media event announcing Sound Transit's receipt of ISO 14001 certification for the system we use to manage our environmental program. We are proud to be the Northwest's only transit agency - and one of the only six nationwide - to accomplish this goal.
More importantly, we are pleased that this provided an opportunity for Sound Transit to talk publicly about the aggressive, multi-pronged effort underway to conserve resources and incorporate sustainability into the way we do business across the board.
Your participation at last week's event helped raise the visibility of both our certification and the breadth of our environmental program. We very much appreciate it. "
