Quality Management System Consulting

A2LA WorkPlace Training employs the industry’s leading ISO accreditation consultants to help you achieve your quality goals. With firsthand experience in both laboratory settings and the accreditation industry, AWPT’s lab consulting services are unmatched. Whether you need help with gap analysis, support implementing an ISO/IEC 17025 quality manual, or expert advice setting up a cannabis testing lab, AWPT consultants are your go-to resource. AWPT serves labs of all sizes, and we can provide experienced laboratory startup consultants for a variety of industries.

Why is Expert Quality Management Consulting Important?

While training addresses core competency, it does not focus on the corporate culture—nor does it consider the unique implementation process. Once your team completes their training, it is important to make sure all staff follow new procedures and understand how to avoid nonconformities. A laboratory consultant evaluates technical and management system competency, leading your team in crucial processes like gap analysis, quality system buildout, quality system audits, and corrective action.

Quality management system consulting creates a strong organizational foundation that drives consistent results and instills customer confidence. We address conformity from bench level to management oversight. When you combine AWPT’s training options with our lab consulting services, you are better prepared to achieve accreditation, maintain conformance, and improve customer confidence. It’s the smartest decision you can make for your organization.

Why Choose an AWPT Laboratory Consultant?

You have choices when it comes to quality management consulting firms, and AWPT employs consultants with firsthand experience in the USA’s leading accreditation organizations. Our ISO accreditation consultants know how the process works and what it takes to succeed. We are committed to your long-term success, not just checking boxes on your behalf. Combining AWPT training courses with lab consulting creates a culture of quality and competency within your organization that supports growth and long-term success.
