ISO 9001 – The Basics
The course starts with an overview of ISO 9001, what it is and what it is used for. We then take a high-level view of how the standard applies to different organizations, what they could gain from it, and what certification entails. Next we review the impact that a well implemented ISO 9001 system has on employees and their work. And last but not least, we share with you what pitfalls got to be avoided to make ISO 9001 a success.
The Pros and Cons of ISO 9001
This part of the course is designed to help you to weigh the pros and cons when deciding on how to proceed with ISO 9001. In addition, we show you how to mitigate the cons if you decide to move forward with ISO. We start by reviewing the external and internal benefits you can expect from certification. Next we analyze the potential downsides before explaining several important strategies for success.
The Foundation and Structure of ISO 9001
This part addresses two key aspects of ISO 9001 that impact your understanding of the standard: Annex SL and the Quality Management Principles. We first explain Annex SL and its importance to management systems. Next we look at each of the seven Quality Management Principles that build the foundation of ISO 9001 and underpin and inform its requirements. Your understanding of these principles will help you to interpret and apply the requirements in a meaningful way to make ISO 9001 work for your company.
The Process Approach and PDCA Cycle
Both the Process Approach and the PDCA Cycle are at the core of ISO 9001 and complement each other. Your complete grasp of both concepts will be an important factor in utilizing ISO 9001 for maximum benefits. Our lessons – illustrated with numerous real-life examples from different industries – gradually develop your understanding of these important concepts.
Overview of the ISO 9001:2015 Requirements
For executives it's not necessary to learn all ISO 9001 requirements. Instead we explain the essence of the seven requirement sections so you understand how the standard promotes good business practices and how you can apply the requirements to your organization.
ISO 9001 – An Implementation Overview
In this part we give you an overview of the five steps for implementation and explain what each entails. We also discuss the role that leaders play and their contribution to making the implementation project a success.
The Role of Top Management in ISO 9001
The last part of the course directly addresses the ISO 9001 responsibilities of executives. We first provide an overview of the critical role that leaders play in the quality management system. Next we discuss in detail what executives can do to before, during and after the implementation phase to make ISO a long-term success for their organization.

What is the difference between the Executive and the Manager Training?
Both courses offer specific training tailored to their intended audience, making it crucial to select the appropriate course:
The ISO 9001:2015 Executive Training guides corporate leaders on ensuring ISO success and carrying out their specific responsibilities under the standard. This course is recommended for those involved in strategic decisions for the company but not directly managing staff, aside from high-ranking managers and VPs.
The ISO 9001:2015 Manager Training instructs department managers and team leaders on the optimal application of ISO 9001 within their respective departments. This course offers abundant practical tips and best practices applicable to operational functions. If you directly oversee departments or teams – potentially even 1-person departments without additional staff – this course is recommended.
Is this course all that's necessary for leadership training?
Yes, this course fulfills the ISO training needs of executives. Some additional, situation-specific guidance may later be provided by a member of the implementation team.
I would like to sign up 10 employees. Can they take this course independently while I monitor their progress?
Yes, your employees can take the course independently and according to their own schedule while you track their progress. This is how it works:
Select a course quantity (10 in our example) and complete your purchase.
You will instantly receive an email with login instructions to the online course management dashboard.
Enter name and email address for each of the 10 employees. The system will immediately email each assigned employee their login instructions for the course.
Each of your 10 employees can now independently take the course at their convenience – anytime, anywhere. They can pause and resume the self-paced course as needed, and can switch computers whenever they want. Course access is available for 3 months from the day of enrollment (but can be extended upon request).
You will see their progress in your online dashboard.
Upon completion of the course, each employee will receive a verified certificate that they can digitally share and that you can directly access and retain as evidence of training.
Is there a time restriction on completing the course?
Yes, you need to complete the course within 3 months from the date of enrollment. In our experience, this is more than enough. Nevertheless, you may extend course access for as long as needed.
Do I have to take an exam?
No, the final exam is completely optional. These are your options:
Certificate of Attendance
After completing the lessons, you'll receive a Certificate of Attendance – without taking the final exam. It's all you need to meet the ISO 9001:2015 requirement on training records.
Certificate of Attainment
You may also choose to take an online, multiple-choice exam to receive a Certificate of Attainment. This type of certificate not only serves as evidence of training but also shows that all related competencies have been acquired.
Both types of certificate include blockchain verification and can be digitally shared on LinkedIn and other social media.
How many attempts do I have to pass the exam?
You may take the optional final exam – free of charge – as often as needed to pass it (the passing score is 70%).
After answering all questions, you'll be presented with your final score and a comprehensive review of the results. You'll also be able to retake any lessons to brush up on your knowledge.
Is this course accredited by Exemplar Global?
9001Simplified is an Exemplar Global Certified Training Provider and Examiner. We are authorized to issue Certificates of Attainment displaying the Exemplar Global certification mark and Competency Units.
However, Exemplar Global currently doesn't have Competency Units applicable to executive training. Consequently, this course isn't Exemplar Global accredited. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that we developed this course using the same high standards that we applied to our accredited courses.
What is the difference between online training and a live virtual course?
The difference between our online training and a live virtual course lies in flexibility and subsequent effectiveness.
A live virtual course resembles a classroom presentation but is conducted remotely via video conferencing technology. While you can take the live virtual course from anywhere, it requires specific timing, running concurrently with all other enrolled learners.
Our online training, on the other hand, offers unrestricted access for studying at your convenience, allowing you to manage your schedule. You have the autonomy to decide the duration and frequency of your study sessions, even revisiting lessons as needed, enabling personalized learning at your preferred pace. In other words, our online training provides complete flexibility and adjusts to your needs for the best learning outcomes.
