Use a specialist ISO consultant
Alcumus ISOQAR is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), the national accreditation body for the UK. They are recognised by government. UKAS regulations say we have to remain impartial. So, we can’t help you implement your system because we will also be auditing it. It would be like marking our own homework.
Fortunately, there are many consultants available to help you. You can find them on our online database. A consultant will take you from the beginning right through to certification. Consultants bring a wealth of experience and can share best practice from their work with other organisations.
Do it yourself
Alternatively, you can implement ISO standards yourself. We will put together a package of support to help you through the complete journey.
A good starting point is to go on a foundation training course with Alcumus Academy. They deliver exceptional training whether you’re a beginner or an expert. Most of the courses are CQI IRCA accredited and are run by our own trainers. They make learning fun and inspirational.
