Course Feedback

‘Gary was the best thing about the training course. His knowledge and delivery are second to none. His credibility as an auditor shone through. The hands on sections of the course where brilliant and gave us a real insight into how an audit doesn’t have to be a complicated activity to be scared of.’

‘It was a really enjoyable course – well organised, good number of attendees, comprehensive and good material, engaging and knowledgeable trainer and the practical workshops /examples really helped to embed learning. The pace of the day was just right – time to absorb information and participate in breakout rooms, ask questions etc. Overall a great course, which I would recommend to anyone who is interested in developing their knowledge of ISO 9001 internal audits.’

‘The training was very good. The course was well paced and didn’t feel rushed or stretched out. Some others ive done over the years I always end up thinking come on lets get on with this! but this one was good without hanging about. The other people on the course had a real mix of understanding and I did think the person running the course made sure everyone was engaged and understanding of what was going on. I would recommend to others and have already spoken to a member of staff about the fact we may get them on the same course at the end of next year’

‘Having carried out compliance audits for some 20 years or more, Gary gave a useful refresher of the reason for an audit and having the correct approach to the client. I really liked the audit of the fictitious company and writing up the audit findings.’
