“The Integrated Management Systems Lead Auditor training program was comprehensive, well paced, informative and provided many opportunities to apply the course content in a realistic fashion. The trainers were superb. They knew their content back to front and were able to bring together and engage participants through their diverse practical experience.”

“Overall very valuable course. Balance of theory with practical workshops was excellent. Trainers stuck to timetable very well.”

“The course was thorough and many relevant examples provided by both Tom and Jackie to help me apply it to the workplace.”

“Great presentation of the course, engaging facilitators and good use of group work. I found the course to be a great refresher for an audit course I did 10 years ago and now feel more motivated to go audits in a non-bow tie way!”

“Trainers’ knowledge was excellent, their knowledge made the training and learning easy.”
