Detailed Course Description

This course addresses auditing the technical systems and issues in an accredited laboratory. In the auditing environments, we see a very weak technical understanding among internal auditors of laboratories for ISO/IEC 17025. This includes key accreditation items such as uncertainties, metrological traceability, proficiency testing, and technical method validation. This course helps prepare an internal auditor to clearly understand these technical aspects.


Classroom, instructor-led. This course is 2.5 days in length.  


Student manual and handouts will be provided. All attendees are required to bring their own copy of the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard to this training course. These will not be provided for you. You can purchase a copy of this standard from ASQ (Item #T804).
