The expertise of the lecturers was outstanding so it was great to ask about particular issues.  A good mix of tutorials and practicals.  Excellent course and would recommend it for all EHOs who inspect cheese plants.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Marissa in my capacity as Senior Environmental Health Manager with Food Standards Scotland. Marissa has recently provided training for both FSS and Local Authority staff in Scotland, and the feedback from the courses provided was very positive. Marissa doesn’t simply ask for feedback for the sake of it, she actually takes it on board and readjusts course content as a result. The sign of a true professional. I hope this will not be the last time FSS and I work with Marissa."

Patrick Smyth - Senior Environmental Health Manager

"Marissa has worked on a number of specialist consultancy assignments for RQA. These have required expert knowledge of food microbiology from the growth of organisms in specific food products to evaluating microbiological testing regimes. Marissa’s expert reports have been the basis for major product safety improvements in food manufacturing processes. Marissa has also provided food safety training courses for our clients with excellent feedback from delegates. Marissa quickly understands the client brief and always produces excellent work. She is also a pleasure to work with."

Vince Shiers Ph.D. Managing Director RQA Group

The course has been conducted in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and yet it was highly informative and the trainer showed a very high level of competency in HACCP and teaching techniques.

"Marissa's technical knowledge and experience are exemplary. The professional manner in which she carries out inspections and the resultant work is thorough and of the highest standard. Her advice is not only sound but she delivers it in a way that non technical people like myself can understand. Marissa is also a joy to work alongside, I honestly cannot recommend her highly enough."
