QA ensures that the correct policies, procedures, templates, and other documents are sufficient to prepare high-quality deliverables and products.

Standards, such as Six Sigma and ISO (9001 and other subsidiary sections), are used in this 3-day workshop.
- Risk Management: – this 3-day course focuses on identifying, qualifying (i.e., scoring), quantifying, and preparing responses for project uncertainties. These uncertainties, which can be positive (opportunities) or negative (threats,) are collectively known as “risks” and are inherent and, at times, a precarious part of any project.
