ISO 9001:2015 Upgrading From 9001:2008


Member price $499

Course Description

This intensive 1-day class is led by a live instructor via hi-def virtual classroom using GoToMeeting (teleconference and internet). At GAQP, we believe live instruction with interaction and Q&A is the best way to learn.

The goal of this course is to help participants understand how to prepare an organization currently certified to ISO 9001:2008 for the certification audit to ISO 9001:2015. GAQP offers a separate class for organizations not currently certified who may need more assistance building a QMS from the beginning.

There is no assessment (exam) to complete the course, however participants are evaluated throughout the day to ensure engagement and understanding of the material. Those participants who successfully complete the class will receive a GAQP certificate of competency for ISO 9001:2015.

The course is divided into 5 modules:

  1. ISO 9001:2015 from A to Z – understanding each clause of the standard with special emphasis on the new clauses
  2. How to prepare your organization for the upgrade
  3. How audits to the new standard are different, what your auditor will look for, what questions they might ask, and how you can be prepared
  4. Audit prep training – how to prepare senior managers as well as staff for the audit focusing on the different roles in the new standard
  5. How to ensure ISO is adding value, not creating unnecessary work

Course Time: 9am-5pm EST with 15-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon and a 30-minute lunch break

Delivery Method: Live instructor, virtual classroom (via teleconference and web)

Pre-requisites: None

Pre-work: All participants are strongly encouraged to purchase a copy of the ISO 9001:2015 standard prior to class and have it available during class.
