To assist our existing clients with the transition from ISO 29990:2010 to ISO 29993:2017, SOCOTEC Certification Singapore (SCS) is conducting regular public training on awareness and internal audit for ISO 29993:2017. Unlike ISO 29990:2010 which share some similarities with many of the management system standards such as ISO 9001:2015, the ISO 29993:2017 reflects a typical sequence of experiences of learners and sponsors in a prototypical learning service, including advertising, information provided prior to acquisition of the service, needs analysis, design, assessment and evaluation. Please refer to the attached training calendar.

 

Lastly, for more information on the transition process, please contact our Sales Department via phone at 6299 9001 ext 1 or via email at certints@singnet.com.sg.
