Laboratory Management or Quality Systems have evolved greatly over the years. All organisations making measurements have a system of sorts, some more advanced than others, and some more compliant with the requirements of modern Standards than others. This short course, split into three modules, describes the modern approach and how it can benefit your business.
It identifies the features and terminology used and how systems should be integrated into an organisation’s operational and management practices to add value, convenience and compliance. The management system is not an unavoidable overhead, it is a cost-effective tool that should also reduce risk and stress.
Each module is served as a 90-minute webcast, viewable at your convenience, followed by a scheduled live Q&A event with your tutor. This will help you to contextualise the learning to your specific requirements.
Course completion certificates are provided after each module.
For just £225 + VAT you will receive:
Anyone contemplating modernising their system or introducing one from scratch would benefit from attending this course. This is regardless of the Standard they intend to follow and whether or not they wish to achieve external accreditation or any formal customer approval.
Company owners and directors looking for a concise overview of the requirements
Technical staff unfamiliar with modern management systems
Quality Managers, auditing staff and administrators seeking knowledge of modern systems
