Best course I've taken in the past decade at least, a real pleasure!
Considering what a broad range of subjects come into play in QRA, it is remarkable how well this course managed to focus in on key concepts and methods - a very worthwhile three days
Participant Quantitative Risk Analysis course, 2013
I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for the outstanding training you provided during the Quantitative Risk Analysis course held in Philadelphia. The course material was informative, challenging, and extremely well presented. It was an awesome learning experience for everyone. I have a great appreciation for EpiX Analytics, because I honestly believe your organization is hands down the most knowledgeable risk modeling firm in the world. Thank you again.
Excellent Practical Instruction
The example problems were challenging/probing and particularly suited to the types of analysis we are expected to conduct in our work. Excellent practical instruction, built on strong statistical theory.

Participant Intro to Quantitative Risk Analysis course, 2006
Introduction to Quantitative Risk Analysis is not just a class, it is an experience. There is a great depth and breadth of knowledge that The instructor brings to the table, not just in risk analysis, but in business and industry as a whole. The class brought to light and explained fully issues with risk analysis that I previously only suspected or wondered about. I would not hesitate to recommend the class to anybody with a true interest in risk analysis.
Dr. Francisco Zagmutt's four-day course on Introduction to Animal Health Risk Modelling was extremely worthwhile. His methods of reviewing the vast amount of information on which the field is based and seamless introduction of brand new concepts are expert, and it is obvious that he is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the subject matter. Francisco always had the right anecdote or bit of history to put the issues at hand into context, and in so doing, made for a richer, more memorable experience than just introduction of formulae and application to a specific dataset. He also had an affable and approachable attitude that generated a friendly atmosphere amongst a diverse group of students and promoted a camaraderie that outlasted the few short days of the course. My only regret is that we didn't...

Great Job in Teaching
I wanted to thank you again for the course. I think you did a great job in teaching us; I know how hard it is to teach a group, give everybody the feeling you are giving them your full attention and at the same time stay focused on the most important things and make sure the 'group' advances in the material. You succeeded very well in this challenge!

Clear and Concise
EpiX Analytics provides seminars and workshops on risk assessment, commencing with basic principles, and extending into more complex risk assessment methods. At each training session, the instructor communicated clearly and concisely, providing excellent notes and worksheets. The focus of our interest in risk assessment has been primarily in the field of animal health, and later plant health. The instructor was able to demonstrate the immediate applicability of an impressive range of techniques in both of these areas. It is a credit to the instructor that he was able to work with people from very different mathematical backgrounds, and his patience with beginners was commendable.

Beautiful course! Hard work, lots learned!
I took part in the post-graduate certificate in risk analysis in health and food safety offered by the Royal Veterinary College in collaboration with EpiX Analytics. The quantitative risk assessment sections were taught by EpiX Analytics, and I was struck not only by the instructors’ knowledge and professionalism, but also by their engagement and enthusiasm which was highly contagious! Not long into the module the whole class was participating actively and with great enthusiasm.
This was an exciting but also demanding course. The topics covered (e.g. risk modelling with mathematical elements) were of great depth and complexity, but the instructors’ great lecturing and communication skills helped us in navigating through and, finally, understanding them well. ...

Course gives a new perspective
It is not too often that you come across a training session that changes your thought process on a topic. EpiX Analytics' risk analysis course has given me a new perspective on the analytical process in general, which I am looking forward to implementing in the near future.

Skilled presentation of the material made the information very easy to digest
“I wanted to thank EpiX Analytics for hosting the Quantitative Risk Modeling course in NC. I have wanted to employ risk modeling to support decision analysis for some time now and this course was a perfect introduction to applying these techniques. The instructor was excellent and and his skilled presentation of the material made the information very easy to digest. The application-oriented focus of the instruction was especially appreciated as there were several moments during the course that I could see immediate relevance to my own projects. I enjoyed the course very much and am looking forward to applying these concepts and tools in my regular work. Thank you!”.
