Remote Assessments Series - Class 1 (Information Communication Technology)


We are all learning new techniques of working.  This training is to help organizations when staff is working from outside the operational  locations. The three trainings provide: (Class 1) an introduction to doing work outside the operational location, (Class 2)  performing assessments of organizations by accreditation bodies, and (Class 3)  how the organization can prepare for an off-site (remote) assessment, audit or client visit,  The training includes the process of planning, conducting and reporting assessment and audits using Information Communication Technology (ICT).   The trainer has over ten years experience in performing audits, assessments and consulting using ICT and this experience will be shared with the attendees.
