The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), in collaboration with the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), is sponsoring five high-quality, prerecorded webinars that provide an introductory overview of the requirements for an accredited laboratory’s quality management system.
Using a comprehensive review of the management system requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005, including its documentation and record keeping requirements, instructors provide critical insight to participants. The webinars provide the background information necessary to design and develop quality manuals and related quality documents and they provide helpful tips needed to facilitate internal audits and management review processes.
“We are pleased that, in collaborating with APHL on this webinar series, A2LA now has an on-demand information program available for everyone who has an interest,” said Peter Unger, President/CEO of A2LA. “This cost-effective training program can be utilized 24/7.”
This basic-level program is appropriate for Laboratory Technical Managers, Quality Managers, Laboratory Supervisors, Analysts, Technicians and other individuals working in laboratory sectors who wish to obtain the latest information about ISO/IEC 17025. APHL is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. Participants will be awarded 4.0 contact hours for completing the series and evaluation.
