Event Description

The CanadaGAP Auditor Training program has a pre-course assignment therefore registration will close 2 weeks before the course start date.

This five-day course is designed to train potential auditors specifically for the CanadaGAP program.

The course is four days of classroom training and a fifth day for review and examination(s). At the end of the program, the attendees will be able to:
