It is said that exceptional service level is the outcome of having exceptional people working with an organization. The best way to create a team of Exceptional Employees in the organization is have a sound training process in the organization.

When an organization initiates ISO 17025 process in the organization, it is very important that all the employees will be on the same platform as far as their understanding on ISO 17025 standard is concerned. Going further with implementation, all the employees in the laboratory must be equally aware about various requirements of the ISO 17025 standard, documentation requirements, internal auditing etc. Until a well-planned training for ISO 17025 is not done, the implementation will not be effective and the laboratory will not be able to get the desired benefits out of the laboratory QMS.
