BRC Training, Education and References


BRC Global Standards provides many training opportunities for sites seeking certification to the Global Standards. Training on the standards can be achieved directly from BRC through the BRC Academy; however, this training is limited in geographical availability. Alternatively, training on implementing the different standards may be received from a BRC Approved Training Partner (ATP’s). Click here for a directory of BRC ATPs in your area.
