These will set you up perfectly to understand, establish, develop and implement an effective ISO Management System! You will need to choose which ISO applies for your company.

I noticed some of your courses are conducted 2 days or more compared to others offering only 1 day. Why is that?

We have conducted hundreds of training sessions before and we realized based on experience, most of the companies who wanted courses conducted only 1 day; tend to struggle to develop and implement their ISO management system in the long run. ISO management system has 10 sections called clauses, and you can only learn the theories and awareness in 1 day.

Regardless, the learning outcome of our organization team is important. They need all the necessary knowledge in order to establish a management system following ISO requirements.

What we are offering for 2 days are hands-on training workshop so that you will not have to develop your ISO alone, the trainers shall guide you along the way. We will guide you to do it right once and never have to worry again.

However, if your company needs a refresher course or you just need an understanding and awareness of what ISO is, the 1-Day course which we also provide is available. This is so that you do not need to train your new hires; we will do it for you.

Is ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System more complicated than other ISO? My company is interested.

All ISO standards state that all organisation must adhere to the country’s legal statutory law and regulations. That being said, the Malaysia’s Anti-Corruption Act 2009 Amendment 2018 Section 17A has imposes heavy punishment for related offenders and is considered one of the strictest law among the other countries worldwide. And this is just one of them, we have more than 5 Act Laws we have to adhere in Malaysia.

This is the reason why ISO 37001 differs from the other ISOs. What we will help you is to guide you based on MACC Act. Our trainers and consultants have direct discussions and meetings with SPRM officials on Anti-Corruption issues and DSM on Anti-Bribery issues in combating Corruption and meeting not only ISO requirements, but most important the legal requirements as well. Our trainers are also certified under SPRM, ISO and are registered under DSM (Department Standards of Malaysia). The best part is, they are also ISO certified Auditors!

This is crucial and important; you will need this crucial piece when implementing ISO 37001 in your organisation.
