“The five modules of the online course concerning the “Chemical Management System” were very useful and instructive for me, especially for the purposes of preparing for the ZDHC Level 3 Certification audit: in a few hours and with total freedom of management, I could  focus and get instructions and suggestions on some critical aspects of the business management of chemicals, thanks to the concise and effective style of the course and various practical examples … now all I have to do is put into practice what I learned!”  Employee from EUROCOLOR SPA
