Discover why SQMC-trained auditors stand out from the crowd.

For decades, SQMC has been a leading provider of QHSE staff development training. One unique advantage of the SQMC approach is we only employ trainers that are actively auditing (a broad spectrum of sectors) when they're not in the classroom. This means you can better relate, personally, to the examples we illustrate. It truly brings the theory to life, and is one of the reasons we highlight to clients that "not all auditors are created equally".

  • Learn from real, working auditors.
  • Every SQMC tutor is a Chartered professional.
  • Their broad experience brings the theory to life!
  • We promote a highly positive auditing stance.
  • We outlaw the archaic, 'inspection'-like approach!

"SQMC-trained auditors have been taught the importance of seeking compliance during their audits, not 'fault by default'. SQMC-trained auditors create an encouraging atmosphere when they visit. Such modern, progressive auditors give extra value to their clients and auditees by pinpointing incisive opportunities for improvement - because that's what SQMC has earnestly trained them to do!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Are SQMC auditor qualifications recognised worldwide?

Every SQMC auditor course promotes best practice auditing guidelines of ISO 19,011:2018, and satisfies ISO's requirements for staff competency and training (clauses 7.2a and 9.2c of the Standards). An SQMC training certificate is therefore accepted during 3rd party Certification Body audits, universally.
