QMF holds graduation event for lead auditors
Manama, January 28, 2013
QMF Global Consultants, a leading provider of ISO quality assurance services in the region, recently held a graduation ceremony for a batch of Bahrainis who qualified as ISO9001:2008 IRCA-approved lead-auditors.
Yousaf Razaq, director at UK-based QMF Global, which has its regional headquarters in Bahrain, congratulated the students for having passed the IRCA-approved lead-auditor course which is considered to be one of the most difficult and grueling in the world of quality.
“This is definitely an accolade both for the students and the Kingdom as a whole. The rules and regulations set by IRCA for this course have become very stringent with the examination now being closed-book; so therefore witnessing the students pass is definitely a proud moment for QMF Global Consultants,” he said.
Faisal Riaz, director at QMF Global added: “The demand for the ISO lead-auditor courses in the fields of quality, environmental management, health & safety and food safety have been surprisingly high. Our next three months are already fully-booked. The courses are particularly popular as they are worldwide recognised and accredited by IRCA and IEMA in the UK.”
The students who represented Protiviti Global, Dalkia as well as a few government ministries took the auditor course to extend their knowledge in the quality field and to improve themselves in their respective careers, a company statement said.
Graduates added that this experience will benefit their work in the section that they work in and improve their attitude and behaviour in doing the audits especially as lead-auditors last but not least; they stated it will give them more confidence to lead the quality-audits, according to the statement.
QMF Global Consultants is a Tamkeen approved Quality Assurance services provider and therefore is able to provide further benefit to its clients as Tamkeen will pay 80 per cent of the consultancy fees and 100 per cent of the UK certification costs. – TradeArabia News Service
