Our courses are delivered by specialists in their field, which provide you with high value knowledge and skills to make a practical difference in your organisation.


UKAS has over 20 years' experience in providing training for laboratory staff and 10 years' experience in certification and inspection body staff training in the UK and overseas, including mainland Europe, North & South America, and Pacific Rim countries. UKAS also has experience of assisting overseas countries wishing to set up and to develop a national accreditation service, and overseas and international bodies wanting to learn more about accreditation procedures, international standards and assessment skills.


Our Trainers

UKAS draws its trainers from its own in-house experts. These include assessment managers and external technical assessors, all who have up to date involvement in assessment techniques and the application of the international standards in accreditation decisions. In delivering training, every effort is made to make courses as relevant to delegates as possible, by developing case studies and exercises that reflect their general professional disciplines.
