100% pass rate for auditing exams at Verner Wheelock
Auditing has become a way of life for most companies in the food industry, especially if they supply the major retailers. Award-winning training company, Verner Wheelock, has seen a marked increase in the number of people wanting auditing training over the past few years, so much so that they have added extra courses this year.
They are now running back-to-back Lead Auditor training courses in October to cope with demand. Not only that, but since January this year, Verner Wheelock has trained close-on 200 people on their Auditing Skills, Supplier Auditing and Lead Auditor courses. What’s more, every single person taking the FDQ-certificated examinations has achieved a pass rate or higher.
The training has taken place either at Verner Wheelock’s modern facilities in Skipton, North Yorkshire, or in-house at customers’ own premises.
“It’s really fantastic to have a 100% pass rate for auditing courses.” Says Managing Director, Alison Wheelock. “Forty percent of delegates have achieved a pass with distinction, which means they have achieved a mark of 95 percent or more. The delegates now have the skills to perform their own audits effectively and with confidence, as well as being prepared for any third-party audit.”
“I really think the fact that all our auditing tutors are also active auditors within the food industry makes a big difference to the overall experience. It’s the same with all our other courses such as HACCP and Food Safety – all our tutors have practical hands-on industry experience.”
The next open auditing courses take place on 6-7 September (Auditing Skills), 8th September (Supplier Auditing) AND 2-5 October (Lead Auditor. For more information, please visit www.vwa.co.uk
