” He is a more energetic person from morning (9.30 am) up to the end of the day class (5.30 pm). He is also very good at engaging students also to more listenable and energetic during class hours with workouts and exercises.

He is identifying the students easily on getting required clarification even though its online class. He is good in explaining and presenting ISO 22000-2018, auditor responsibility in an excellent manner with example

Improvement opportunity: Auditor checklist filling workout was very good but timing can be increased more in future.

Overall GOOD.
