Assessment of Process Effectiveness Why 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.
Basic Course Requirements
- The Kelmac Group® is known for our in-person classrom and hands-on activities, and we use an extensive toolbox to foster similar engagement and attention in our virtual classes. Our Consultant-Trainer and learners interact in real time via our flexible, online learning platform, resulting in an engaging and real-class environment. This is an ideal alternative to the typical classroom setting for professionals who are unable to travel or who just prefer the convenience of attending a class without having to leave their own personal environment.
- This class is delivered over five consecutive days, 08:00 to 17:30, Monday to Friday
- Kelmac Group’s® virtual instructor-led training (VILT) is a live web-based learning experience where the Consultant-Trainer and learners are in separate locations.
- Kelmac Group’s® VILT technology platform is designed to ensure similar interaction as a traditional in-person classroom experience and allows for 2-way dialogue, break-out sessions for engaging workshops and hands-on exercises, and group work using virtual breakout rooms. This provides for an engaging learning experience in which learners can connect with the content and interact with both the Consultant-Trainer and other learners.
- The learning objectives and topics covered during the VILT are the same as the corresponding in-person version of the class. That said, to accommodate a virtual setting, the pace at which the VILT is delivered, and the structure of class workshops and exercises, is modified to support engagement in a virtual format. Virtual class participants receive eBooks instead of printed materials.
