After receiving training through PathWise, we certainly see a general improvement in our CAPA process, including Root Cause Analysis and Documentation..There is also a reduction in the number of open CAPAs, resulting in less people being involved and less pressure for our organization.

Yes, I would refer this course to others as I have learned new tools from this course. These tools will help us improve our investigations and CAPA. The course material was easy to understand. The joint approach to the activities performed will also help develop positive relationships with co-workers.
