More than 300 public training course dates have been announced by the SGS Academy, aimed at businesses across the UK looking for support on ISO training and help in transitioning to new management systems standards.

The new January – June 2016 brochure of courses, available to download from the 'Resources' bar on the left hand-side of this article, covers courses across the UK from Belfast, Glasgow and Newcastle down to Birmingham, Heathrow, Swindon and South Wales.

Throughout the first half of 2016, as outlined in the new brochure, the SGS Academy will be hosting a range of transition courses for the new quality and environmental management systems standards – ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015. These sessions vary from half day to full day courses for clients eager to learn more about transition requirements, and between 1-5 days for in depth courses focused on auditor skills and practitioner training.

Daniel Curling, Manager of the SGS Academy, believes the new courses will appeal to businesses looking to develop and train staff at different levels.

“These courses vary in intensity and length depending on what support and training you are looking for. We found there was a need to offer public courses for individuals from companies who may only have a couple of staff members requiring specialist training.

Our public face-to-face courses enable participants to interact and develop discussions with those in related industries so that they can feed off each other’s thoughts and gain best practice knowledge which they can then put to best use. We also offer in-house courses where our experts work with companies to identify their objectives and create a course tailored to their specific needs.”

The Academy will also be offering a new range of 1-5 day International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) certified courses for those delegates looking to further develop their practitioner skills and gain a technical understanding of the auditing process. These courses are beneficial to a wide range of business sectors with a variety of different skill-sets and levels of understanding – from newcomers to the standards, to those already certified.

“These new courses further complement our extensive portfolio of occupational health and safety, energy management, business continuity and information security courses. Our brochure of comprehensive training solutions can help and support companies through any step of their transition process. We encourage companies to get in contact with us so that they may benefit from the wide range of training solutions that we offer.”

This is the first of two Academy brochures – the second covering July to December 2016 – and that will also be available as a download from our website site later in the year.
