Total Quality Management for laboratory Efficiency ISO 17025 training course enables you to learn the basic components to implement and manage a Laboratory Management System (LMS) as specified in ISO 17025. During this training course, you will be able to understand the different modules of a LMS, including LMS policy, procedures, performance measurements, management commitment, internal audit, management review and continual improvement. After completing this course, you should have understood the fundamental methodologies, requirements, framework and management approach for ISO 17025.
Training course enables laboratories to demonstrate that they operate competently and generate valid results, thereby promoting confidence in their work both nationally and around the world. It also helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing, which, in turn, improves international trade.
