If you are interested in serving as an ANAB Technical Assessor for either ISO/IEC 17025 or the ISO/IEC 17020 accreditation program and learning the mechanics of the assessment process, this is the course for you! If you are NOT interested in being a Technical Assessor, please see the Forensic Internal Auditor Course.
The primary goal of this course is to train individuals to serve as an ANAB technical assessor in the application of ISO 19011, Guidelines for Auditing Management Systems, during an assessment of a forensic science testing or calibration laboratory or a forensic inspection body. This course will provide participants with a review of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 or ISO/IEC 17020:2012 and the relevant ANAB Forensic Accreditation Requirements (AR 3125 or AR 3120) and the assessment process. In addition, through various practical exercises, classroom discussions and a final examination, each attendee will gain knowledge regarding the ANAB assessment process, learn numerous assessment methods and acquire skills for how to perform an assessment and collect, verify and record objective evidence.
Please NOTE: The information presented during this course assumes that the attendee has a basic understanding of the existing structure and content of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 or ISO/IEC 17020:2012. A thorough review of the requirements is provided in the online training portion of this course, but requirements will not be reviewed in detail while onsite.
