About the Training

This is a very interactive, one-day training programme which is designed to be particularly suitable for personnel who currently perform Internal Quality Audits but who have no formal training in the requirements of the ISO 17025:2017 Standard or Internal Audit Procedures and Practices.

It is also particularly suitable for personnel who may in the future assume the role of Internal Quality Auditor within the Organisation. The training takes the form of a workshop which involves numerous group exercises and discussion points.

On request the training is customised to address any specific requirements of the Organisation.
