”It was pleasure to have AQTS Inc. for ISO 9001:2008 lead auditor training for managers/supervisors and six sigma black belts from different sites of GE Energy facilities. The course was very well structured and nicely conducted. The tutor Safi Qudsi made even the difficult and dry sessions look simple and easy to understand. ……... The students stayed quite engrossed and interested in the course for all five days. Definitely it was a value added course and GE would like to have AQTS back again for this and other courses.“

The course was one of the more interactive and comprehensive training courses I have taken in the past few years. The instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and encouraged participation from all the class members.
The exercises used were practical and evolved around the classes own experiences. I still am glancing back at my reference material as I am able to incorporate what I learned into practical use here at our organization.
I would easily recommend the class to those interested in either learning more about the auditing process, ISO 9001:2008 or wanting to attain lead auditor status.

I gained an incredible amount of valuable knowledge that I can apply to various roles/ aspects of the Quality department at West and when evaluating customers or suppliers externally.
The ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor course that was given by Safi Qudsi at Abacus Quality Training Services Inc. far exceeded my expectations. One of the most effective instruction techniques that Safi Qudsi utilized was use of case files coupled with individual and group exercises after each course section. …… Another interesting technique that Safi instituted throughout the course was the use of improvisational roll-playing as auditors and auditees. …….. By the end of the week, I not only learned an incredible volume of information regarding ISO 9001:2008 but also the means by which to effective apply it to a variety of industries.
