Practical Skills for Auditors

TQ02 | 4 days | Grade: Practitioner

Having a Management/Quality System is a regulatory compliance need; having an effective system is a distinct business advantage. A skilled and competent auditor is able to uncover not only the obvious, but also the underlying reasons for non-compliance – identifying underperforming processes and recommending system improvements that utilise limited resources to best advantage.
