We had been using the previous design for several years now, and we have continually improved and updated it
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
Bizmanualz, Inc., a business publications, training and consulting company based in St. Louis, MO, today announced the launch of a completely redesigned version of its ISO 9001 QMS Internal Auditor Training course. This ISO training course demonstrates requisite auditing skills to beginning auditors, and is also valuable to experienced auditors and quality managers looking for a refresher course or the opportunity to discuss innovative approaches.
The redesigned two-day ISO auditor class focuses on helping participants understand the criteria, the skills, and the activities required to be an effective internal auditor as part of an ISO 9001 Quality Management System. The class is offered regularly at the Bizmanualz Learning Center in St. Louis. It can also be conducted privately on-site for organizations that would like to hold group internal auditor or quality auditor training sessions in-house.
"We had been using the previous design for several years now, and we have continually improved and updated it," said Don Reed, Technical Writing Director at Bizmanualz and the primary designer/instructor for the class. "We have learned so much, however, through our experience teaching the course and through carefully listening to student feedback, that we felt it was time to start from scratch and use everything we have learned to completely rework the course."
The ISO 9001 Internal Auditing course is currently the most popular training class offered by Bizmanualz. The totally redesigned Internal Auditor class was conducted for the first time on February 9 & 10 at the Bizmanualz to a great success. The participants responded very positively to the new approach and the reworked materials.
"The newly redesigned ISO 9001 Internal Audit Class focuses on giving the participants exactly what they want and need from an ISO 9001 Internal Auditor class: an interactive, seminar-style discussion along with real world examples and exercises," said Chris Anderson, Managing Director of Bizmanualz. "For example, we no longer use PowerPoint because we just don't feel it creates the interactive environment that participants expect and deserve."
Mr. Reed agrees. "Professionals prefer to learn in smaller classes with an atmosphere that encourages discussions and questions; where participants share their experiences and challenges. This produces a better learning experience for everyone."
In this internal auditor training course, students will learn the basics of an ISO Quality Management System, as well as how it can drive organizational improvement. Students will become familiar with using the ISO 9001 Standard as criteria for auditing, the importance of an audit program, along with basic auditing principles. Most importantly, however, students will learn the step by step methods of conducting an audit, and participate in an audit of a QMS process. ISO 19011 - Guidelines for Quality and Environmental Auditing is used for fundamental guidance on auditing principles and methods. Plus, all participants receive a free copy of the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Requirements.
Bizmanualz schedules the Internal Auditor Training Course at least once every three months. Please visit the http://www.bizmanualz.com to register for the class or to see a detailed course description and a upcoming training schedule.
