Training with Laptops

Not just because we're nice people (and we are) but because of the real problems our Courses solve.

When you need to arrange training for prospective internal auditors, lead implementer-auditors or lead auditors for your management systems, we have the answer. Consider:

  WE PROVIDE... YOU LIKE IT BECAUSE...
1 Start training your Auditors today!

Self-paced learning: Fit course around your busy schedule.  Complete the course as time allows. Study anywhere/anytime you have broadband access – at work, at home and while travelling (with Wi-fi).

Delivery at a time and place of your choosing. Our courses can be delivered in a formal training environment or can be taken as a self-study course as and when time and other resources allow.

Accessible world-wide on internet

Platform independent – any Windows or Apple OS on any PC Workstation or other desktop, notebook, tablet or other handheld device with access to the internet - can access all features.

2  In-company Courses with no minimum number of learners

A deterrent to running in-company courses is that it is often difficult to find a sufficient number of Learners to justify the cost. No problem! Just use your own Training Room with a minimum of one Learner (see item 3)

3 Use in Training Room environment

In any training room with internet access you can enjoy the benefits of a disciplined approach – set a schedule to ensure learners devote uninterrupted, quality time to their auditor training.

Courses published in both SWF and HTML5 formats: During a Lesson you can switch from one device to another. 

Say, you start a Lesson on your PC at work.  You can continue the Lesson, from where you stopped, on a tablet device on the bus or train home and then finish it on your Notebook after dinner.

4 Courses delivered through established LMS service

No software installation needed: You can log into your course on any internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.).  So anytime, anywhere when you have some quiet time, you can use your PC, Notebook, Tablet or similar device to continue your e-learning course.

We use an award-winning LMS service to deliver our courses for uninterrupted availability worldwide and a glitch-three service.

5  Integrate into your own LMS

Using the expertise of Inquisiq, our LMS service, we can integrate our Courses into your LMS.  And incorporating your course credit system, logo, etc. if you wish.

6 Experiential learning-based Courses

Adults learn best by experiencing and understanding the significance of what they are learning. 

This is the approach we use for all our Courses. Dozens of scenarios in each Course allows the Learner to participate in ‘real’ audits.

Experienced auditors will tell you that it is only by practicing your audit skills that you really understand how to interpret and apply a Standard’s requirements.

Multi-layered approach: The Learner builds up their knowledge and skill progressively, layer upon layer, as you go through the Course - a more rewarding experience for the effort put in.

And these audit experiences are built into our Courses.

7 Scalable Certification

Extend the Grade (Internal Auditor to Lead Auditor) and/or Scope (for example, add ISO 13485, ISO 27001 Standards) as and when you need them.

8  No Expiry Date

The validity of our Certificates is not limitedAuditor competency is not based on Certificates alone.  Auditing is a practical skill, and it is practice that builds and maintains competency.

Certificates do go out of date periodically when Standards change.  Here we offer Conversion Courses and then re-issue Certificates for the new or revised Standard.

9 Inexpensive

A fraction of conventional course cost.  Savings of up to 60% are common when travel and accommodation casts are considered. Additionally, there is a reduction in work time loss.

No examination charges: All of our courses incorporate certification examinations. There is no additional charge involved.

Certificates are available for printing instantly upon successfully completing the examinations.

10 Corporate Discounts

Discounts of up to 25% are available.
