Quality Assurance Training Contract awarded; Training Sessions being provided to six Counties

Posted March 16, 2015 at 11:54 am

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College has contracted with the Southern Alleghenies Workforce Investment Board and the Southern Alleghenies PREP Network to conduct Quality Assurance training throughout the region. Attendees must be employees of, and sponsored by, a business located in Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, Huntingdon, or Somerset counties.

Participants will gain an understanding of Quality Assurance (QA) systems, problem solving, the impact QA has on consistently meeting the customer’s requirements, and QA’s role in supporting Continuous Improvement. In addition, participants will learn Root Cause Analysis methodologies through both hands-on exercises and lecture-based learning. ISO requirements for internal audits, auditing techniques, documentation of findings, communicating results, and corrective action follow-up will also be presented.

The program includes eight hours of training, morning and afternoon breaks, and lunch for $94 per person. The cost of this training is being subsidized through a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Attendees realize a savings of 70% ($217) off of the total cost of the program ($311).

All training sessions will begin at 8am and end at 5pm. A training session will be held in each of the six regional counties. These training sessions include:

  • Bedford County: April 15th, Pennsylvania CareerLink of Bedford County
  • Blair County: April 16th, Penn Highlands Blair Center
  • Cambria County: May 4th, Penn Highlands Richland Campus
  • Fulton County: May 7th, VFW in McConnellsburg, PA
