Why We Love Training (And What Our Students Think Of Us Too)

At MfQ, we provide training for auditors on management systems in Quality (ISO 9001), Environmental (ISO 14001) and Health & Safety (OHSAS 18001).

The Trainer's Point Of View

As trainers, we derive great satisfaction from passing on knowledge and seeing delegates develop understanding of the subject area.

We run standard training courses and also conversion courses to train existing auditors in a new standard.
As an example, when running an OHSAS 18001 conversion course, the delegates may have prior knowledge of the Quality or Environmental management systems standard, but they will have little or no knowledge of the Health & Safety standard; as a trainer, it is most rewarding to take these delegates from this starting point, developing their confidence in the subject through to a comprehensive understanding of the standard.

This is achieved through our unique action learning approach to the subject which immerses the student in the subject from the very beginning; their use of the standard will be vocational, so we get them thinking on their feet from the start.
We like to bring the subject to life so this approach includes interactive discussions, detailed case studies and role play exercises to test understanding.

We also pride ourselves on being friendly, approachable and open to any questions.
Feedback is good with many of the delegates saying that following the conversion course, they know a lot more about the OHSAS 18001 standard and its application; subsequently they often go on to attend the ISO 14001 conversion course at a later date.

The Students’ Point Of View

“Very enjoyable course and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of becoming an internal auditor.”

“Coverage of material was excellent - content well balanced.”

“The course presenters made me feel at ease - they were very knowledgeable, friendly and easy going, which encouraged the group to work well together.”

“I expected the course to be a 'dry' laborious grind through ISO 9001, but must state that, while both difficult and tiring, the course has been made very enjoyable and interesting - mainly due to the approach taken by MFQ.”

“Course presenters were very helpful with a full knowledge of the subject which made it enjoyable.”

“The instructors had time and patience to discuss with all the participants. They were able to get the best out of the Standard, turning it from a piece of paper into a living object.”

“Extremely good all-round presentation with a touch of humor - very well presented indeed.”
