How To Get World-Class 
ISO 9001 Training... 
Without the Headaches and Hassle.

Learn, Implement or Audit an ISO 9001 Certified Quality Management System in a virtual setting with all the benefits of hiring a on-site consultant.

QUITE SIMPLY THE BEST ISO 9001 PROGRAM AROUND....SERIOUSLY.

If you're a business leader or quality manager and want to shave countless hours and costs from you quality management system...this is the most important page you will ever read.
And this is EXACTLY why...

Maintaining a Quality Management System That Actually Produces Results Can Be A Costly Pain In The Backside...Even With A Highly Competent Quality Manager!

Telling isn't training...and good training for your employee base can cost thousands of dollars.

Training Auditors is also very expensive and takes people out of the business for several days costing valuable productivity hours.

70% - 90% of the training isn't even retained following a course, requiring additional time for repeat learning.

Consultants like myself aren't cheap...and are often necessary to get from A to Z.

Ineffective internal audits lead to repeat nonconformances requiring even more time and resources.

Most employees don't even know what a Quality Management System really is (if you don't believe me...go ask them and see the response!).  This means there's no way of getting a solid ROI on your investment.

You get my point...read on...it get's better.

I've Been In Those Classes Before...

I remember when I first got into the Quality Management Systems arena...I was a QMS Manager and remember sitting in a classroom...bored and stressed at the same time...just thinking...

"If I knew we were just going to read over the requirements...I wouldn't have paid $1200 for this!"

I knew the content was important....and my company really needed me to bring value back to the business...but it was too much to really learn...in a short time...with zero support afterward.

All The Questions I Really Needed to Ask Came To Mind After The Class Was Over!

It never failed.  Every time I went to one of these classes, I would leave feeling like I understood...

...believing I took good enough notes to get by.

But as soon as I got back to the company, and started to get to work....

...I had questions!

I knew the instructor mentioned "something about something", but there was no way I was going to remember what it was...

...and there was no number to call to ask questions

I was stuck.

I Wanted To Create Something That Would've Saved Me When I Was an Auditor and Systems Manager

So after nearly 15 years of auditing, training, and consulting, I wanted to create something I wish I had "back in the day" as I was growing through the ranks...

... I wanted to break the traditional "course" model...

...I wanted to create a QMS coaching model....

....a model that combined convenient instruction, personalized follow up, and support that continued well after the "content learning" was over...

...a model that had the convenience and flexibility of on-demand training with the benefits of having a certified trainer, auditor, and consultant on speed-dial.

That is what this program is all about.

The BEST QMS PROGRAM ON THE MARKET...EVEN IF YOU HAVE A GREAT QUALITY MANAGER.

This program offers two different levels of learning...The Foundations and The Auditing and
Implementation
training program.  Whether you're looking to simply roll out ISO 9001 training for all your personnel, developing your implementation strategy, or looking for effective Internal Auditor Training....you're in the right place!

This program is also a great support for your existing quality management efforts, providing all the training, guidance and support to assist your current quality pros!

You're Probably Thinking "But Is This Program Really Right For Us?"
Well...

Have you heard nightmares about ISO 9001 and are hesitant to get things moving forward?    

Is your organization stuck in the "do it because ISO said so" mindset and missing the big picture when it comes to quality management?

Have previous managers or employees created a monster QMS that you're now challenged to simplify?    

Are you new to quality management and want to see what all the fuss is about?    

Have you been tasked with implementing an ISO 9001 quality management system with few resources and even less expertise?    

Are you hesitant to hire a consultant, because know when they leave things will begin to slip backwards?    

Are you in need for annual Internal Auditor Training without the expense of sending your team on expensive trips out of town?    

Are you tired of your QMS being "extra work" and ready to finally start making it work for you?      


Well...if ANY of the above sound remotely familiar, you are in the right place!  

Our programs are developed to show you the effective side of ISO 9001.  Participants in this program will learn the essentials plus best practices from a certified ISO Lead Auditor and Experienced Consultant - who also happens to be our CEO!
