Testimonial on the ISO 16949 Lead auditor course:

"The challenging online Lead Auditor Certification Training, offered by CALISO, really helped me to focus on business process improvement at my company. I feel more connected to my current position with new tactics to approach quality issues effectively."

Kean P. Finnegan, P.G. - Sales Engineer Applied Geomechanics

"..Providing cost-effective uniform training for a management and sales staff that is located world-wide is difficult at best.  Arranging travel and schedules to ensure that everyone can get to the training is next to impossible.
CALISO's online training provides a comprehensive program that allows our management team the flexibility to take the training on their own schedules, while providing documentable evidence of the training.
Ensuring that Senior management understands their role in the updated standard is the first step in ensuring the success of our compliance program.
After researching a number of online training solutions, I found CALISO's program to offer the best bang for the buck."
