In-company courses may be organised at any time and are extremely cost-effective on a ‘cost-per-student’ basis. The host company is responsible for the venue costs.

We can accommodate up to 10 (maximum) delegates per session.


The courses are aimed at quality engineers, project managers and other staff required to undertake quality-related tasks and activities.

Increasingly aerospace and defence customers are requiring their suppliers to demonstrate that they can use a battery of methodologies and quality tools to boost the performance of their quality management systems.

Staff using these tools must be qualified and competent to use the tools in the industrial environment. All or the ‘core tools’ courses include case studies and tem exercises to ensure that the principles and practices are being used correctly. When delivered on-site, actual situations can be included.
