The Business benefits of employing Quality experts

Everyone in an organisation is responsible for Quality – from the CEO to the intern. But not everyone can be a Quality expert. It’s important to have people who can provide the knowledge, tools and guidance to help everyone else play their part in pursuing excellence.

Quality Professionals are dedicated to protecting and strengthening their organisations by making sure that stakeholders’ needs are met and their expectations are exceeded.

There are numerous benefits to your organisation in training staff to become experts in Quality, including:

  • Protecting reputation: avoiding the potentially catastrophic risks of getting things wrong
  • Enhancing reputation: maximising value for customers and stakeholders
  • Improving profitability: eliminating unnecessary cost and waste and growing revenue
  • Driving change: contributing to the ongoing improvement of the organisation

The Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) is the global chartered body for Quality Professionals encompassing the whole Quality community, including Quality Management Professionals, and is the world’s largest professional body of its kind.

The CQI is the only organisation in the world that can award Chartered status to Quality Professionals – an unrivalled mark of excellence, which makes its brand one of the most trusted. The CQI supports the development of good governance, agile assurance and a culture of continuous improvement through membership services, training, learning and Thought Leadership.

The benefits of gaining the Quality gold standard 

Becoming a Member of the CQI and a Chartered Quality Professional is the gold standard for professionalism in Quality, putting you at the same standard as other Chartered Professionals.

“CQI and IRCA members are part of a unique global network of nearly 20,000 Quality Professionals”. CQI

The Quality profession is changing. More and more employers are demanding Chartered Quality Professionals on their projects. Only Chartered Quality Professionals can act as true business partners, positively impacting the financial bottom line, eliminating unnecessary costs and waste.

By becoming a Chartered Quality Professional, your colleagues will regard you as:

  • Agents for change: transforming processes, behaviour and culture
  • Guardians: protecting the business by identifying appropriate standards for business performance and assuring that they are met
  • Collaborators: working closely with Leaders and Managers
  • Leaders: creating, managing and improving the organisation’s business process systems
  • Progressive: understanding the realities of managing organisations in dynamic environments
  • Holistic: looking across business functions and hierarchies to advocate a broad process and customer-centric view of the organisation
  • Professional: qualified by our professional institute, the CQI, and bound by a rigorous code of conduct

Membership offers you infinite development opportunities and is an invaluable way of gaining professional recognition for your expertise and commitment.

The CQI chartered members get to use the title of Chartered Quality Professional. IRCA (The International Register of Certificated Auditors) is a division of the CQI and is the leading professional body for management system auditors.

GBS can help you on your way to becoming a Quality Practitioner 

GBS Corporate Training has just released a suite of Practitioner level Quality courses. By taking just two of these Practitioner-level courses, you will have completed the training requirements needed to be considered for Chartered Quality Practitioner Status by the CQI.

“There are already a number of Approved Training Provider’s providing Foundation level courses but we wanted to be seen as working at the next level and as we deliver mostly classroom based courses, the Practitioner level was our immediate choice.” David Price, Managing Director, GBS

Our Practitioner courses provide delegates with a full understanding of management level Quality and auditing topics and shows them how to apply this knowledge in their organisation and industry. Our certified training courses provide you with the skills and knowledge to support your application for CQI membership or IRCA certification.

Our courses are mapped to the CQI Competency Framework, developed to define the abilities that every successful Quality Professional needs. Our program content allows you to master the key competencies, which are needed in order to become successful in your role.

Process Improvement

The framework is structured around

  • Good governance (i.e. ensuring that the interests of the customers and stakeholders are met)
  • Agile assurance (e.g. putting systems in place to protect and enhance your organisation against risk)
  • Improvement (by evaluating and transforming the organisations structure to maximise productivity)

By using the unique CQI Competency Framework, you are more likely to influence others to ensure that ‘Quality’ remains central to everything within your organisation. The Competency Framework can help you plan and progress your career, and can help employers to give the best support to their staff. These 3-day courses are highly interactive, enabling attendees to immediately apply what they have learnt across different business scenarios.

Attending two of our certified training courses provides you with required Quality training to support your application for CQI membership or IRCA certification.

GBS is very flexible in the training programmes we create for you. We can tailor course content to cater for your specific business needs or to address skills shortages in your organisation. Through this approach, you can be sure your employees are gaining new knowledge and skills that will be relevant to your company.

We listen to our clients carefully and so are able to support them to achieve real behavioural change in a business world that is constantly changing and where what we need to learn, when we need to learn and how we like to learn is also constantly changing.
