  • Love the class and instructor

    Kristen Cole | November 26, 2020

  • It is a brilliant concept that makes learning possible even during this trying time of Covid-19. The fact that the fundamental training is done before the Auditors course makes it more effective. Highly recommended.

    Izak Marais | October 16, 2020

  • The training was presented very professionally and the facilitator had the knowledge base and skill to make this training excellent.

    Johan Pretorius | October 16, 2020

  • Breda was an exceptional instructor. The blended training model was a nice balance between independent self-paced learning and the benefit of learning in a group with exercises and discussion.

    Melba Herrera | October 15, 2020

  • This was a totally new field for me but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Breda has excellent product knowledge and her method of presenting the training was professional yet still enjoyable. She is very friendly and has Excellent communication skills. I would any be willing to take any lecture that she presents.

    Jacobus Oosthuizen | October 15, 2020

  • Training is as expected.

    Buddhika Dharmakeerthi | October 15, 2020

  • Having an on-line first part allows everyone to take more or less time as needed and to focus on the points of personal interest. In that way we saved time in class being able to do a more practical session. Shane is an excellent instructor. The final quiz was brilliant.

    Aida Martin | November 28, 2019

  • Great course . Blended is the way to go.

    Ray Ryan | November 27, 2019

  • Simple and effective.

    Mark Lumley | November 27, 2019

  • The Online section took a lot more time than than recommended

    Pat O'Callaghan | November 27, 2019

  • With continuous improvement of the Online Modules this is a very good way to deliver Training and eLearning to Professional personnel, working in busy environments. It is the Future...! Well done to all at ComplyGuru. I would highly recommend their Training courses and methods of delivery.

    Martin Searson | November 26, 2019

  • Excellent, certainly the way forward.

    Kevin O'Dwyer | November 26, 2019

  • Overall the training provided was excellent.

    Alan McGowan | November 26, 2019

    Derek McCaul | November 26, 2019

  • i found it to be brilliant. the support before ,during and after is second to none thank you for the knowledge and a great experience

    | November 12, 2019

  • I really enjoyed the Internal Auditor training. I would provide more examples of case studies, I think the 1 day was a bit too short (a 2nd day would be good to revise and complete more case studies - especially for people with no auditing experience) Thanks

    Clare McDaniel | November 12, 2019

  • I found the whole experience great, the knowledge and the experience gain was great. the support from the beginning through to the end was first class. thanks for everything .

    George Fitzpatrick | November 12, 2019

  • I found both the online training and class training to work well together, the online portion allows you to learn at your own pace & the class gives much needed experience at executing meetings & sections of non-conformance that I would initially have been unsure about. I am happy with the outcome.

    Lee Byas | November 12, 2019

  • The online portion was well done and comprehensive. However, I did the online portion a number of weeks before the classroom portion and access to the online portion was not accessible once completed. This meant that I couldnt go back to the online part to refresh before the classroom part. Also, the pre-course revision was not helpful to brush up, it was a series of questions that led me to go back to the International Standard.. I couldnt answer a lot of the questions, especially when it came to preparing a checklist for auditing. Overall I had a good experience but that was disappointing. I would recommend this course but would advise to do the classroom portion straight after the online portion.

    Anna Juhel | November 12, 2019

  • I really enjoyed the training. The online part was tough but being able to complete it at my own pace was very convenient. The classroom part was very enjoyable. I loved the small class size. It was very interactive and John encouraged everyone to get involved. I was very impressed with John's knowledge and skill as a trainer. He knew the content inside out, was extremely engaging and was the best trainer I've ever had on any training course.

    John McPartland | November 12, 2019

  • very helpful

    Lee Greene | November 8, 2019

  • Overall excellent and an enjoyable way to learn.

    Karl Fagan | November 6, 2019

  • The instruction was very knowledgeable and spend time to speaking with people on a individual level and not just in the group which i liked.

    Christopher Leavy | November 6, 2019

  • Very well delivered course. Extremely knowledgeable instructor with tonnes of experience in auditing. Very helpful in ensuring all requirements are in place to allow individuals conduct a risk based audit on any process.

    Gerard Synnott | November 5, 2019

  • Thoroughly enjoyed, made easy through the LMS setup and convenience of an in-house classroom portion, would recommend.

    David Ramsey | November 5, 2019

  • I was not on the original program but was added last minute .had a little catching up to do but not the course facilitator issue. enjoyed the program once I got into it and am happy with my personal improvement and achievements

    Ian Young | November 4, 2019

  • I am very satisfied with the training. I felt Breda went above and beyond with everybody and was extremely helpful. I would recommend her as a trainer to any company requiring training courses. At no time was asking questions a problem, and she stopped several times during the training and made people feel that they could ask questions any time. Very well spoken and very easy to learn from. Breda is an asset to Comply Guru.

    Dolores Quinn | September 3, 2019

  • overall I was very happy with the support received while doing this course, Breda was very informative and very supportive.

    Claire Quinn | September 3, 2019

  • The trainers were knowledgeable, the flow was good, not time wasted, objectives met.

    Magda Kacprzak | July 10, 2019

  • Tutor was very conversant of the ISO standard and it's practicable applications. Found the mix of online and classroom learning very beneficial.

    Marie Claffey | July 8, 2019

  • Anne Marie Hayes | July 1, 2019

  • Overall training was very good. I found that some questions on the final exams were tricky in terms of you thinking that there could be a few correct answers but only allowed to pick one. Also the standard was tough to understand due to the termination that was used but when we went through each part verbally i got a much better understanding of it.

    Phyllis Devoy | June 28, 2019

  • Very professional and organised training, I left without compliant and with my own confidence in auditing QMS improved.

    Andrew Mahon | June 21, 2019

  • I found the course to be very beneficial for me as a college student researching ISO 9001 standards. The course is presented in a very professional and efficient manner making it easy to access and understand. The help and support provided by the course directors was exceptional and they were always willing to make time for the participants to ensure that maximum learning outcome was achieved. Overall Comply Guru provide a fantastic training experience and are extremely professional educators ensuring that their participants gain excellent value for money.

    Ronan O'Shea | June 19, 2019

  • I am very satisfied with my time with Comply Guru. Eoin and the team went above and beyond to provide a simple painless experience. My knowledge of ISO was basic when I started and the material brought me right where I need to be by delivering the information at a perfect pace. Highly recommend to anyone seeking training. You will be in good hands.

    Barry Morton | June 17, 2019

  • Very well thought and executed. The online portion was very convenient and allowed people to work at their own. The classroom portion then served to tie it altogether. Great to see how the theory works in the real world. Overall I was very impressed

    Neil Long | June 17, 2019

  • Overall a very good course. The classroom bit clarified some of the on-line stuff and brought it all together.

    Declan O'Connor | June 17, 2019

  • Mary Stapleton | June 15, 2019

  • I thought that from start to finish it was excellent, knowing that there was always someone there to help you out while doing the online training was great. Breda was very professional but still made me feel really comfortable!

    Laura Wallace | June 14, 2019

  • Excellent training, useful and beneficial and well orchestrated. Comply guru are professional and knowledgeable and have compiled an excellent blended training course.

    Laura Fehily | June 14, 2019

  • Amazing

    Lisa O'Brien | June 14, 2019

  • Great concept - liked the idea of on-line so that you could do the course at your pace and set aside convenient times without losing work hours as such. The follow on of classroom helped reinforce and clarify what was learned as well as giving practical advice on internal auditing practices, pitfalls etc.

    Adrienne Sheehan | June 14, 2019

  • Excellent way to Train ISO & 2015 with blended and hands-on . Very Good delivery.

Yes, the course is still certified and all Learners who successfully complete the full program will receive a CQI & IRCA Certificate of Achievement.

  • Laptop or desktop computer (Note: A tablet or mobile device is not suitable for this training)
  • Webcam – Built-in or USB plug-in
  • Speakers and a microphone – Built-in or USB plug-in. We strongly recommend a headset if you have this available
  • Internet connection – Minimum of 1.0Mbps

How will Comply Guru help you prepare in advance?

1 week in advance of every  training course, we will be hosting an on-boarding & familiarisation virtual training session with all Participants.

This advance session will recap on the key learning outcomes from the online modules completed & ensure every Participant is comfortable and familiar with the software and tools that we will use during the virtual training.

For any Participant that is experiencing any issues, these can be identified & support will be available both before and during any virtual training course.
