Our RSB courses for auditors, consultants and industry experts have been developed together with the RSB, and it are recongnized as the official training program on the RSB Standard. ASTRAcademy is also offering training updates on the RSB Standard and is keeping a register of tained and qualified professionals engaged with the RSB system.
