ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 Transition Training (Online)

The ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 Transition Training webinar is a live four-hour session delivered through WebEx. This interactive training will be led by ANAB accreditation assessor Rob Dye. The new and revised requirements of ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 standard will be discussed in detail, as will the transition process for CBs currently accredited by ANAB. The webinar will include a question and answer segment to aid comprehension and an exam to verify the appropriate knowledge was gained.

This training is designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to understand the new and revised requirements and to implement the changes at your CB. It will also include background information on the reasons for the changes, information gathered directly from Randy Dougherty, co-convener of ISO/CASCO WG 21, the developers of ISO/IEC 17021. After submitting the registration form and fee, you will receive the login and call-in information for the session.
