Quality management training for executives, managers and employees within your organization has become paramount in regard to establishing the kind of recurring activities needed to increase the ability to fulfill requirements for a moment here think about (continual improvement) as prescribed within the ISO 9001:2015 requirements.
When the entire management team, from top to shop, have the same understanding of the skills, processes, and strategies necessary for process improvement, and the requirements as called for in ISO 9001:2015 your various quality management system aspects can be easily implemented with less frustration for the organization.
Whether it is the ISO 9001:2015, the telecommunications standard TL 9000 or OHSAS 18001:2007 the employee health and safety specification that your company is working to implement, having your employees educated in various proven quality management system techniques can make a huge difference.
The benefits of quality management training go far beyond achieving ISO certification, and with the advent of e-learning the training can be accomplished without prohibitive cost or time offsite.
Quality management training requirements are flexible for your business
In the sea of companies seeking to do business in the international marketplace one of the most distinguishing credentials that organizations can acquire is being formally certified as meeting the ISO requirements for a sound quality management system. With the depth and breath of operational coverage that quality management systems like TS16949, 9001:2015 or TL 9000 provide, we just like to refer to a quality management system as your business management system when working with our clients.
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) issues quality management systems requirements and reference documents to provide a road-map that allows any organization to acquire certification but knowing how to interpret and implement the requirements is not fully covered within the standard itself.
This approach makes the formal certification process flexible for many different companies with varying scopes of operations such as, manufacturing, software and hardware design and development, shipping and distribution, and service related businesses.
The ISO 9001:2015 standard specifically indicates within clause 7.2(b) with regard to competence, “ensure that these persons are competent on the basis of appropriate education, training, or experience”. Even with the word “conformity” no longer included under the competence section of the 9001:2015 standard, the recognized definition within ANSI/ASQ Q9001:2000 is still “fulfilment of a requirement”. Conformity to product requirements is still affected directly or indirectly by personnel performing any task within your quality management system.
When a company is formally audited for certification the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 clause 7.2 are examined for the proper implementation. The following requirements of the standard is then audited for compliance within that organization:
The organization shall:
- determine the necessary competence of persons(s) doing work under its control that affects the performance and effectiveness of the quality management system;
- ensure that these persons are competent on the basis of appropriate education, training, or experience;
- where applicable, take actions to acquire the necessary competence, and evaluate the effectiveness of the actions taken,
- retain appropriate documented information as evidence of competence.
The aforementioned ISO 9001:2015 requirements are part of the central reason for quality management training as driven by the standard. There are other requirements within ISO 9001:2015 and various other quality management system standards that also define the need for training as well.
With a proper understanding of the basic tenets of quality management as the foundation, executives, managers and employees are more clearly able to understand and implement what’s being asked of them in order to comply with the various quality management system requirements such as 9001:2015, TL 9000 or TS16949 certification.
The ISO 9001:2015 standard is not prohibitive with regard to training and how it should be implemented inside your organization. Actually, the standard allows the organization to have flexibility, by enabling your company to incorporate training that is needed in direct support of your operations, and also quality management training to meet the ISO 9001:2015, TL 9000 or OHSAS 18001:2007 certification.
