Combined Laboratory Management

4 day course

Please click here to download the course programme.

All laboratories need to have sound business processes to enable them to deliver technically valid calibrations and tests to their clients. When a laboratory is seeking to have its competence recognised through accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, these processes should also enable the laboratory to demonstrate that they meet the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025. This course combines the key elements of the Laboratory Internal Audit and Laboratory Management courses to provide skills for staff responsible for internal audit, quality management or technical management within a laboratory or organisation. 

What are the benefits?

To facilitate delegates’ understanding of how the business processes of a laboratory can be combined effectively with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 and to provide and aid understanding of the internal audit process and its value to management.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

- Apply your knowledge and understanding of the principles taught to a wide variety of situations to allow the planning and delivery of internal audits.
- Have a basis for deciding which tasks fall within the remit of your Quality Manager and Technical Manager.
- Understand how effective management controls can be implemented, and be able to undertake structured preparation for UKAS assessment.
