ISO 9001: Ensuring External Training is Effective
Employee/subcontractor training is one of the business processes that are defined in a quality management system that meets the international standard ISO 9001:2008. For any enterprise where external training of personnel is an issue a quality approach to recording outcomes has major benefits, because the cost of failure can be very high.
Another benefit is that a quality management system that meets ISO 9001:2008 can be externally certified by a nationally accredited certification authority. This always impresses customers, because it decreases their risk in placing orders. In the UK, the national accreditation service is UKAS and their ‘tick’ logo appears on all certificates issued by UKAS-accredited bodies.
