    Jacobus Oosthuizen | October 3, 2020

  • The course material was very well presented and you had to really apply yourself to get the results.I was pleasantly surprised at how course material can be taught and learned so efficiently on an on-line platform. It really enjoyed it although it was still very challenging.

    Izak Marais | September 28, 2020

  • This course is very professional in all aspects. The fact that it carries the certification bodies approval puts it in a league of its own. All the interactions are professional.

    Johan Pretorius | September 24, 2020

  • Fantastic course. The knowledgeable attentive and enthusiastic instructor couldnt do enough for us. She had loads of relevant stories to tell us which made the learning material stick. She put all the participants at ease which drew the best out of us and helped everyone learn. You really do learn a lot from the other participants too.

    Sean Markham | February 11, 2020

  • Really enjoyed the training actually. The constant knowledge check ensures you get a depth of knowledge.

    Angela Curran | January 19, 2020

  • The course was very good, it provided an accessible way to gain an understanding of the various clauses and did so in a clear & as plain an English way as possible. Breda's pre-exam tips were excellent and the course handbook was invaluable. If I would change one thing, it would be for the printed version of the handbook to have a larger font.

    David Ferrie | December 13, 2019

  • Overall very satisfied with my training experience and I would not hesitate using Comply Guru again in the future

    Nikky Slattery | December 12, 2019

  • I enjoyed the course and found the staff of Comply Guru very helpful

    Diana Whelton | December 12, 2019

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the online course, admittedly more so than I expected at the outset. If you want to get the most from it, it does take time and perhaps longer than the advertised time.

    Ray Ryan | November 28, 2019

  • In my opinion both, the content and the presentation of the course is really good. I think that the combination of videos and handbook is a brilliant idea. Having flexibility to do it when it suits you best is perfect. However, from my point of view, it was a bit too long. Congratulations for the design of the training, great work!

    Aida Martin | November 28, 2019

  • Well-structured programme, and beneficial to novices and Quality professionals requiring a refresher on the current ISO 9001: 2015 standard (as I learnt some more about this management system standard, after completing this online course). The course flows well and is easy to understand and work through. Well done to the Comply Guru team and for the continued support, encouragement and prompts to complete this program.

    Martin Searson | November 26, 2019

  • Very good course.

    Cora O Connor | November 19, 2019

    Pat O'Callaghan | November 19, 2019

  • Very practical approach to the modern busy work environment.

    Kevin O'Dwyer | November 18, 2019

    Mark Lumley | November 18, 2019

  • The standards were hard to learn especially when you were new to them but by having an interactive online course, this made it less tedious to learn and i quiet enjoyed it.

    Anne Marie Hayes | July 1, 2019

  • I would advise anyone doing the online element of the course to do some when there are no distractions -as it can be hard to stay engaged if phones and emails are coming in as you are trying to focus on the material. The class room learning was well organised and presentator were knowledable and very helpful.

    Andrew Mahon | June 21, 2019

  • Training experience was very effective. The online training was very informative and with the detail required to respond to the end of module assessment and overall assessment, it forced to me to focus more attentively to each section. The online training provided for sufficient knowledge to allow for successful demonstration of same. The practice session was excellent, putting the skills into practice and reinforcing the importance of having a thorough knowledge of the Standard when engaging in ISO:9001:2015 audits.

    Phyllis Devoy | June 21, 2019

  • excellent experience, informative

    Gerard McGroarty | June 20, 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

The class room section was a pleasure, a warm environment was created and my knowledge base was significantly improved. The lines of communication were always open without being bombarded with notifications which is a common theme with training companies. Highly recommend comply guru to anyone looking for training.

    Barry Morton | June 17, 2019

  • Overall, I was happy with the training experience.

    Mary Stapleton | June 15, 2019

  • Very professional, helpful, attentive personnel. The communication, guidance and advice from Breda and Eoin from the offset was excellent. The emails were clear concise and informative. There were very good instructions & communications with regard to accessing the training modules, completing the training both online and in the classroom and for evaluating the training. You know what to do, how to do it and the help is there when you need it. The online course is informative, interactive, maintains your interest I think blended training is excellent as the trainee can allocate time within their own work schedule to complete the online training and work at their own pace and to their ability. The classroom training further enhanced the training by building on and applying the learning accomplished from the online training. In terms of training I found this blended training course very practical, useful and beneficial.

    Laura Fehily | June 14, 2019

  • I have had a really good training experience with Comply Guru both online and classroom....

    Laura Wallace | June 13, 2019

  • I thought that the online section of the course was very well done. Great to have elements of both online and classroom though. The classroom scenario really brought the whole thing together. Great relaxed atmosphere, overall very good and I would highly recommend the course.

    Neil Long | June 13, 2019

  • The course was very relevant and practical. It did a nice job forcing the user to open the standard, read the clause and apply it.

    Scott Waidelich | June 13, 2019

  • On line was good as could do it when had time . Easy to schedule around work.

    Declan O'Connor | June 13, 2019

    Brenda Cooper | June 13, 2019

  • I enjoyed the fact that this training moved at a quicker pace than other similar ISO training courses that I've taken. I would definitely recommend this to anyone else that is looking to improve their knowledge of this subject.

    Dan Chappel | June 11, 2019

  • Excellent, user friendly, easy to access course that provides great knowledge on the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. Response time from Comply Guru was very quickly and pleasure to deal with.

    Elena Feeney | June 11, 2019

  • The short duration of the course made it ideal for online learning, enabling learners to 'dip in' as and when they are free. Course content was at the correct level and narration clear, but I would suggest greater emphasis on learners becoming familar with the requirements prior to taking the exam. Course communication was excellent and minor technical glitches were rectified swiftly and apologetically. Excellent value for money and I would highly recommend this platform to any student who wishes to achieve ISO 9001: 2015 Requirements

    Richard Makinson | June 7, 2019

    Magda | March 3, 2019

  • This was a great course! I started knowing nothing about ISO 9001:2015. It was so interesting my only recommendations would be to have a list of all the clauses added to your document section. I had to keep flicking through my notes and thought it would be nice to have them a click away. Also, a few video-based scenarios would be great for learning.

    Evelyn | March 2, 2019
