If you're looking for a training session to help you learn about ISO9001-2015, transitioning your QMS, and/or upgrading your auditor status to ISO9001-2015 ....this is the training course for you.
About the course:
Our Champion courses are for those persons that will act as Champions for their QMS, EMS or OHS systems. Our new ISO9001-2015 Champion is targeted at helping Champions to "be in the know" so that they can best perform their Champion role in their organization.
The Champion course is a complete and thorough review of the new ISO9001-2015 standard. We’ll cover a brief history of Quality leading up to today’s QMS. Then we’ll fly over a list of new requirements before we drop down to the detail level for a detailed analysis of ‘What’s that mean to me”. We’ll use QAI’s coveted learning matrix approach to help students understand how to break down technical documents of any kind into useful chunks of information that you can actually use. Also, a new risk assessment module and activity has been added to the course to help students with the pervasive requirements for risk assessment and evaluation.
Students learn the standard, what is new, what has changed, how it has improved, and what it means to them. They learn a methods to conduct risk assessment and analysis activities that will meet new requirements and that will help the QMS to continue to improve.
In the QMS module of the course:
Day 1 and most of day 2
· A brief history of Quality leading up to the latest ISO9001-2015 revision.
· A bulleted listing of new requirements embedded into the newest revision.
· A detailed review of the standard itself utilizing QAI’s Technical Clause Learning Matrix.
· Tips for system managers and tips for QMS auditors
· How ISO9001-2015 builds, improves, and changes how a 2008 system implementation.
· How to apply the knowledge by viewing video case study examples.
· A Risk Assessment activity has been added to our Champion course to help students understand a method that can be used to meet the requirements pervasive throughout the new ISO9001-2015 standard. This activity and method has been utilized in our ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 courses for over a decade. It is a "tried and true method" that will help you to not only understand how to implement Risk Assessment and Awareness, but to use it to improve your Management System and pass your ISO9001-2015 audits.
· Measureable results. You’ll be tested on your knowledge of the ISO9001-2015 Standard with a short knowledge examination
Students in the QMS (Champion portion of the course will be dismissed by 4 p.m. on day two)
The course includes a complete and thorough review of the ISO9001-2015 standard including a look back at the history of quality leading up to the current QMS system. Our "big picture" course section helps cement the financial side of the QMS and helps students to best understand how a QMS really works ($$).
With emphasis on the latest release of the QMS standard, there will be discussion on how things changed, why things changed, and how to go about meeting the new requirements.
A risk assessment activity has been added to the QMS Champion section of the course. In the risk assessment portion of the course, QAI instructors will walk you through a method to evaluate and rank risks for your QMS Processes. This is a method already in use in our other lead auditor courses. It utilizes risk assessment and analysis. Students learn what is intended by the standard, how to conduct a risk assessment, how to evaluate the results, and how to formalize a plan to mitigate known risks. They will learn how this already "tried and true method" will help your company not only meet the new requirements but help your system to improve. The Risk Assessment activity is included on both the Lead Auditor and Champion courses.
Lecture topics will include implementation and documentation strategies and methods. Workshop and video case study activities are designed to strengthen the student's ability to assess a QMS system and its conformance to the standard.
We administer examinations throughout the course so that students get feedback right away and throughout the course regarding how well they are doing. When they leave this course students will already know if they have passed the course; no more waiting for results of a final examination. Even more importantly, students leave with an improved understanding of the QMS and their role in its implementation at your organization.
If you're part of the planned ISO9001-2015 managers at your organization, then QAI has the training class to bridge gaps that exists from the release of this new revision to the QMS standard. Our competency based training course is a blend that works effectively for everyone resulting in improved results and high levels of customer satisfaction.
When you choose QAI, you get real-world, professional know-how that is partnered with outstanding training materials. A handsome, durable, and professionally prepared student book will display smartly, unmistakably, and serve you expertly in your reference section for years to come.
When you choose QAI, you get the support of an ISO9001 registered training company. If you’re shopping around for training providers, see if you can find another one that is actually certified to ISO9001. The thing about training providers that aren’t certified is that they find it easy to talk about the topic but far more difficult to actually do it. QAI speaks from experience and it is reflected in the value-added training, the material itself and practical hands-on demonstrations that you receive in your QAI class.
Since 1999, QAI has taught tens of thousands of people to be effective auditors, audit team members, and audit team leaders. With energetic, enthusiastic, and experienced internationally certified auditors as our instructors, you get more than just a "slide reader" at all QAI training sessions.
Our competency based training session is designed from scratch. You can forget about the marathon 'boot camp' days of lead auditor training. Our class runs 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day. There are no long nights with mounds of homework. Come see how competency based training is different.
About Competency Based Training:
With the release of our Competency Based training courses in 2006, QAI paved the way for a 4-day 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. ISO9001 Lead Auditor training session. Our class closely resembles the hours that adults are accustomed to working instead of cramming in an outdated style of "brain-dump training". That outmoded method is based purely on the results of a 2-hour examination on day five. With the QAI Competency Based Lead Auditor training session, students get four days of 8 a.m. -5 p.m. instruction. There is no homework. It includes hands-on activities and practice, enjoyable multimedia and high tech video training techniques. It is learnable, fast, challenging and fun! You, the student, get results that are measurable and that matter.
Competency based training includes multiple examination activities that take place several times each day. You receive feedback and guidance in each examination activity. The feedback and guidance help make certain that you not only understand the material, but are able to apply it in your job. These multiple examinations help us to assure that students understand and grasp material. It enables our expert instructors to assess the learning and instruction that has occurred to that point. We can provide guidance to help the student understand any gaps in what they have learned. Reassessing and re-guiding from an instructor with "real world experiences" helps to improve confidence in abilities, apply the newly learned information, and make a competent person.
This training course includes a competency based training evaluation designed by QAI. Students leave class each day by 5 p.m. and there’s no assigned homework. "Peace of mind" is gained in knowing the final pass-fail results during the class rather than waiting days or weeks later.
Competency based training is the difference that matters. Let us show you and your students how competency based training is the perfect opportunity to create more experienced, effective and competent auditors.
