Our new syllabus of modular training courses for the quality and auditing professions, delivered by Approved Training Partners worldwide.

CQI and IRCA Certified Training is a new portfolio that offers a range of training on quality and auditing topics at different levels. This portfolio combines the knowledge and capability requirements of the CQI's two membership brands, CQI and IRCA.

Each training course is mapped to the CQI's Competency Framework ensuring that learning is aligned with the skills and knowledge called on by industry, reflecting the integrated nature of the modern quality and auditing professions. Alongside providing knowledge and skills, our certified training is outcome focused and aims to develop the abilities and types of behaviours that quality and auditing professionals need to master to be successful in their jobs.

Our certified courses are delivered by a global network of Approved Training Partners (ATPs) and are available worldwide so professionals can study in a location that suits them, either classroom-based, by distance learning or a combination of the two – blended learning.

Short and modular based, our certified courses provide professionals with training that suits their career stage. There are three levels of certified training:

  • Foundation: For those who are new to quality or auditing, or who work in other functions or professions.

  • Practitioner: For those who are currently practising quality or auditing and are in or aspire to middle management.

  • Professional: For those who are currently practicing quality or auditing and are in or aspire to leadership or senior management positions.
