Online Courses provide the course you want, when you want it, and where you want it. And the price is right!
Whether you are trying to organize a Course for colleagues, or just for yourself, there are six problems regularly encountered by those organizing training in auditing against the requirements of ISO management Standards – ISO 9001, ISO 13485, ISO 14001, etc. We believe we have the solution.
Here are the six common problems and how our online training solves them for you:
The problem: Public courses are difficult to find, especially if you need training in a standard other than ISO 9001.
Courses are run infrequently, probably at distant locations, and often cancelled at the last moment due to a lack of numbers. Very frustrating.
Our Solution: You can start today
The problem: With Auditor Courses, this can be hit-and-miss.
Often Courses are limited to knowledge of the Standard alone, though this isn’t always obvious.
This is in no way adequate. It’s like teaching a child to play tennis by getting them to study the rules alone. They would know nothing about the different strokes, positioning of players on the court, tactics at doubles, etc.
Our Solution: Complete Courses
All our Courses include:
- Knowledge of the Standard,
- Auditing Skills (to ISO 19011 requirements),
- Quizzes and FAQs with each Lesson,
- Scenarios with dialogue and other exercises to apply the knowledge and skills learned, and,
- Certification Examinations.
3. Course Content and adult learning
The problem: Many courses, both conventional and online, just overload the Learner with facts and then provide a Course Manual to ‘paper over the cracks’.
Very little learning takes place. This is a particular problem for the online Learner where there is no human interaction with a tutor. Email and messaging support helps, but doesn’t address the boredom.
Our Solution: We have a better solution. It is in the application of knowledge and skills that most learning takes place and where most satisfaction arises. This is all part of our Experiential Learning approach to training adults.
So, a Module devoted to Scenarios and other exercises is a major part of every Course where the Learner will see the Standards in action, that action being based on real audit situations.
In addition, we have peppered our Lessons with FAQs to expand on the meaning and interpretation of the clauses of the Standard and of auditing generally.
Interest is maintained throughout designing Lessons to include instruction, guides to interpretation, quizzes, and FAQs.
4. Course Delivery
The problem: Many online courses are limited to delivery on PCs with a Windows operating system.
If you want or need to use different devices or operating systems, you can’t.
It will work on Windows, Mac, and a variety of Linux operating systems. And you’re not limited on devices either – you can use PCs, Notebooks, iPad, and a variety of hand-held devices.
With our Lesson Resume feature, you can begin a Lesson on one device and complete it later on a different device, even one with a different operating system.
Course delivery in your own Training Room is recommended. Not every Learner is well-motivated or disciplined when it comes to e-learning. One solution is to run our Courses for a small group of learners on the PCs in your Training Room (modest internet speed will suffice).
Schedule the sessions, make attendance mandatory, and reinforce and support the learning by using an in-house expert (quality manager or training manager) to mentor the group. Got your own LMS? Our Courses can be integrated and delivered over most LMS.
5. Progressive Training
The problem: A Learner needs to extend the scope of their auditor training.
Our Solution: With our modular system of course delivery, you can save time and money.
The Learner would only need to complete 2 of 4 modules to be certified, namely, the module covering the new Standard and the Scenarios module.
6. Location & Cost
The problem: Conventional courses are hard to find, and travel and accommodation costs are often significant.
If you are located far from a major town or city, budget constraints may force you to reduce the number trained and/or the variety of training given.
Our Solution: Savings of up to 60% are possible versus conventional auditor training courses.

deGRANDSON Global is an ISO Certified Educational Organization
We have chosen ISO 21001 certification because, unlike IRCA and Exemplar badges (which in our opinion are commercially compromised), it is based on independent third-party assessment. It is a ‘university grade’ standard in use globally by schools, colleges, and universities to demonstrate their competence.
