Our parent company Charis Management Systems has been helping Lancashire businesses with achieving and maintaining certification to international standards for Quality, Environment, Health and Safety and Food Safety. Primarily delivering consultancy services around ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS18001, ISO22000 and BRC Global Standards. Achieving and maintaining certification to these standards have helped our clients’ secure larger orders and higher value contracts and customers and helped build trust in these organisations within their supply chain.

Based on a solid background of experience that cuts across the entire field of quality control, quality assurance, quality management and quality auditing gained from industry, service and the third party certification industry; we began to deliver courses as required by our client base. In 2016 we achieved accreditation as an Approved Training Provider for IRCA and CQI Courses. Becoming one of only a sprinkle of active providers based in Lancashire.

Our tagline, aside the fact that we have re-imagined the delivery of IRCA courses is “competitive organizations….competent personnel”. To be a quality organization you need Quality-competent personnel.

The primary goal of Charis- The Training Company, is to help organisations own (in-house), the knowledge required to maintain and improve quality performance. Our IRCA accredited courses at Foundation, Internal Auditor and Lead Auditor levels are benchmarked against criteria set by IRCA and have all come out in flying colours. Our CQI courses will help your team develop tools to manage quality control and quality assurance at Foundation, Practitioner and Professional Levels. Please see our website for a detailed list of available courses www.charistraining.com. And should we not have a course in place, speak to us and we will make it happen for you.
