Intent comprehension of all the clauses of ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016 is QSE’s major focus of this training rather than just what the standard needs.

We differentiate ourselves from other training providers in providing problems from the ISO 9001:2015 standard to maximize auditing effectiveness.

QSE provides a useful word list and useful phrases list as an aid to write effective audit reports. You will never have a wrongly written nonconformity during internal audits by using these terms and phrases.

QSE’s  2-day long training includes mock audits. All participants’ audits are critiqued with meaningful feedback which can be used for instantaneous usage. Very powerful feedback.
