Our Course vs. Our CompetitorsWhy is our course the best?

Assessment of Process EffectivenessWhy is this important?

 

To have a high performing QMS that directly and indirectly impacts business performance requires a QMS that is integrated with the organizations business processes.

Our course focuses on providing Learners with skills to provide real value and underpin Process Owner and other Stakeholder confidence – this leads to better improvements, more insightful audits, better quality information and therefore, better informed decisions.

 

Wider Coverage of Audit MethodsWhy is this important?

 

What sets the Kelmac Group® course apart from both the IRCA course specification and competitor courses is we develop the Learner’s competencyusing a wide variety of audit methods, namely interview, document review and analysis of process and product data and information and operational records.

By comparison, competitor courses only focus on one audit method, interview and this does not expose the QMS Auditor to the real-life audit situation – the Kelmac Group course does.
