“Excellent, the best course I have ever taken! Rebeca delivered an engaging and valuable workshop in Failure Investigations and CAPA System.  What stands out is that she is flexible, listens well and was able to adapt her expertise to individuals and groups needs during exercise and case study sessions.” 

“ As a team leader, Rebeca’s training approach reinforces learning and provided our participants with much to think about, skills to apply when we returned to our own workplace and strategies to use when leading and working with other manufacturing and laboratory areas.” 

“Feedback was excellent from all participants. Top qualities of FDA-RCA’s Failure Investigation and CAPA System™ training course: Great Training Manual, Great Training Aids and superb training skills!  Thank you Rebeca.” 

“ Rebeca’s training  was voted one of the most useful and engaging of all times in our company. And still two years after the training, we keep receiving great feedback from her training skills. Rebeca made a concerted and successful effort to ensure her training was tailored to the audience and that effort was very much reflected in participant’s feedback.”  

“One of the best web presentations I have participated in — very well presented. Rebeca knew her topic, held your interest and I really enjoyed the style, particularly during workshop and exercise discussions.” 

“Rebeca’s training provided me with insight on how to create a learning culture from our human error events. I am in a new role and this will help me lead my team and will coach others managers to do the same. Having now a deep understanding on how to conduct human error investigations, I will be able to manage employee relationships better and help our organization be one of the best to work for.”
