BUFFALO, N.Y. -- This fall, the University at Buffalo's Center for Industrial Effectiveness (TCIE) will offer internal auditor training that will teach employees in the manufacturing, service and public sectors how to assess their organizations' quality performance.

Internal audits can improve the effectiveness of a broad range of business management systems by enhancing workplace safety, product quality and customer satisfaction, reducing environmental impact or increasing profitability.

The three-day ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9001:2008 program will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 28-29 and Oct. 2 in the UB Technology Incubator, 1576 Sweet Home Rd., Amherst.

Registration is requested by Sept. 14.

The program will incorporate formal tutorials, group workshops and open discussions.

Don Bowes, TCIE project leader and facilitator, will cover the ISO 9001:2008 standard, discuss audit activities and techniques as well as objective evidence to gather, and what third-party external auditors expect to determine compliance.

Bowes provides training, management system development and implementation consulting, internal auditing services and procedure-writing assistance on a range of ISO-based standards. He also is a Lean Enterprise trainer and facilitator, assisting companies in identifying and eliminating inefficient and unnecessary processes.

The cost of the program is $595. For more information and to register, go to http://www.tcie.buffalo.edu/seminars.htm, call 636-2568 or email klynch4@buffalo.edu.
