About the Course

This interactive, expert-led eLearning course covers the foundations for implementing and applying a Corrective Action and Preventive Action (CAPA) program for the cannabis industry, in conformance with ASTM D8229. You will gain an understanding of how to use this standard in your business, the benefits of a CAPA program, and how it will ensure compliance with any federal, state, or local requirements.

The instructor will draw off of real-world examples relevant to the cannabis industry to enable effective implementation of a CAPA program.
