This half-day course is designed to provide an overview of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015.  It is structured to give managers an understanding of how to design and implement a QMS within their own organisation, the benefits of doing so and the role of leadership in QMS.

The course addresses the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and will incorporate examples of documented information required for ISO 9001 and will be practical in nature. Additionally the course will highlight the differences between the current standard and its 2008 predecessor.

The course will also be of interest to companies who do not necessarily wish to move towards formal certification of their QMS but who wish to meet and exceed their customer requirements.
