Since 2015, the award-winning company has demonstrated its commitment to excellence in providing high-quality training solutions across quality, health, safety, and environmental disciplines. It has now been confirmed as an approved training partner with the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) to deliver International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) certified ISO 9001 internal auditor courses.

With the introduction of IRCA certification, QHSE Aberdeen has underlined its dedication to ensuring that professionals receive training of the highest standard, validated by industry experts. This latest milestone follows increasing demand from clients to provide IRCA certified training courses and involved a rigorous assessment process and stringent criteria.

The IRCA certification is respected worldwide as the benchmark for quality in auditor training. By partnering with CQI and IRCA, QHSE Aberdeen ensures that its ISO 9001 internal auditor courses meet these exacting standards, providing participants with a highly sought-after certification.

Dave Rusling, managing director at QHSE Aberdeen, said: “This certification represents a welcome endorsement of the standards that define QHSE Aberdeen’s operations and speaks volumes of the hard work and talent of our people who have developed, implemented and maintained robust management systems which underpin the delivery of client services.

“We are committed to putting our clients at the heart of the services that we offer. Having listened to their feedback, we’re delighted to be able to offer high-quality, certified training courses which will add real value and create sustainable solutions for their respective organisations.”

With IRCA certified courses due to begin in April, QHSE Aberdeen has appointed a new member of staff, specifically to help deliver QHSE training, and is looking to hire a second person to provide additional support.

In addition to offering public courses for individuals seeking certification, CQI and IRCA certified ISO 9001 internal auditor courses are now available for in-house delivery at client sites and can be customised to meet organisations’ specific needs.

Angela Scott, business development director at QHSE Aberdeen, commented: “The training side of our business continues to grow organically, so it’s a natural step for us to certify these courses in response to demand from existing clients.

“This partnership agreement bolsters the quality and depth of learning on offer and cements our position as a one-stop shop for helping organisations gain ISO certification and then train their staff to maintain it.

“Meanwhile, our small team of experts in their field allows for more personal client relationships, with advisers being appointed to clients based on their skillset and experience in that particular sector.”

Established in December 2015, QHSE Aberdeen has gone from strength to strength with the size of its team more than doubling over recent years, the creation of a new management team, and a move to larger office premises in Westhill.

The company’s focus on people – its own team as well as those working within clients’ organisations – has allowed it to stand out from the competition. This ethos was recognised by judges at the 2022 Northern Star Business Awards, where the business received the Customer First honour.
