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.

SQMC have public training venues throughout the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe. Our headquarters are Scotland - just 20 minutes from Edinburgh International Airport.
