I have significant experience of the process of applying for International Accreditation. I am also a trained auditor, having attended the following:
- Quality Management System Auditor / Lead Auditor Training Course
- OPITO Auditor Course
I am well aware of the processes required to gain International Accreditation, the review of the standards, the mapping of existing acceptable processes and documentation the necessary gap closure and submission.
Over the years I have been closely involved in the submissions to SVQ / SQA, and City & Guilds. In Kazakhstan I was responsibility for the successful submission to OPITO for the Assessor Training Award.
More recently my involvement at Cegelec in the submission to OPITO of two new accreditations, in addition my involvement in the many Quality Systems audits.
My experience of preparing tender documents with training / competence elements extends back to 1995. Between 2001 and 2014, as the client “training / competence SME”, I have been responsible for the review and ranking for the project Contracts & Procurements Departments of vendor submissions. More recently with Cegelec I have developed numerous submissions.
