My Offerings


Growth in the use of management systems has increased the need to ensure that laboratories can operate a quality management system that is seen as compliant with ISO 9001 as well as demonstrate technical competency. Therefore, ISO 17025 has been designed to incorporate all the ISO 9001 requirements that are relevant to the scope of testing and calibration services, as well as specifying the technical requirements for technical competence.

It is applicable to all organizations performing tests and/or calibrations, regardless of the number of personnel or the extent of the scope of testing and/or calibration activities.  It likewise specifies the general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling.

This course is designed for you to have a solid understanding of the standard, namely the quality management system requirements that are relevant for testing and calibration services and technical competence.


Course Outline:

  • Features of ISO 17025:2017
  • Risk Based Approach

Upon completion of this course, you are expected to:

  1. understand the background and scope of ISO/IEC 17025:2017; and,
