This practical and interactive three-day course will enhance the knowledge and understanding of how the business processes of laboratories can be improved by meeting the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
ISO/IEC 17025 is the International Standard which accredited laboratories are assessed against, and this course will ensure delegates gain a sound understanding of the requirements of the standard, as well as how to apply them to their own roles.
Delegates who complete this training will be able to attend our free post-course drop-in sessions to support their learning. The hour-long virtual sessions run monthly and can be attended as many times as required to ask our training team any post-course questions.
Please ensure you read the minimum requirements for this course before booking to attend.
