Should You Use Free ISO 9001 Training?

From time to time we come across free ISO 9001 training. Before offering an explanation for this, it's best to examine what ISO 9001 training is and what it isn't.

ISO 9001 Training

Different organizational functions require different training. ISO 9001 training is taken to gain an overview of the standard, to learn the steps needed to achieve certification, to understand how to use an ISO 9001 system and gain most from it, and to learn how to conduct audits.

ISO 9001 training comes in various delivery formats, including online training, video courses, virtual live training, on-site courses, and public classroom training. Each format has its own pros and cons; choosing what's best for you depends on factors like budget, scheduling and time constraints.

Caveat Emptor

Let's now take a look at how ISO 9001 training can be offered for free. Developing and delivering ISO 9001 training takes not only time but requires unique skills and experience. There's no such thing as a free lunch, so what's the catch?

All too often, in our opinion, the free course is the carrot that lures the unwary. The victim invests time and effort into taking the lectures but then is asked to pay a hefty fee to take the final exam and receive a training certificate. At this point, the learner could choose between forgoing certification, seeking certification through a less expensive course, or paying up. In practical terms, though, there is no choice when proper credentials are needed and time isn't available to retake the course with another provider.

Use Cases

Nevertheless it's important to realize that free ISO 9001 training has its own raison d'être. Take for example a research project or another situation in which only knowledge without evidence of it is needed. Free training, if of high quality, can facilitate learning.

Business Solution

In a professional environment, however, credentials tend to be just as important as the training itself. And the ISO 9001:2015 standard (clause 7.2) requires evidence of competence. In other words, you'll need a record that not only proves that training was taken but that you acquired the necessary knowledge and skills.

This explains why in the context of ISO 9001 a real Certificate of Attainment with Competency Units is indispensable.

If you need to move forward rapidly and stress-free, take a look at our Exemplar Global accredited ISO 9001 Online Training.   It's not free but it's excellent value.
