The Association of Forensic Quality Assurance Managers (AFQAM) Executive Board is pleased to announce the release of the AFQAM Cooperative Training Program! This training program is designed for those new to forensic quality assurance and will provide a key stepping stone to achieving success in the position and with the responsibilities. The training program was developed by experienced forensic quality assurance experts and is broken up into courses that focus on key topics in quality assurance. The first two courses available are "Introduction to ISO" and "Accreditation — What Is It Good For?"

The AFQAM Cooperative Training Program is open to everyone, and you do not need to be an AFQAM member to participate. Each course can be purchased individually, and a certificate of completion will be given to the student at the successful completion of the course. The interactive training will keep you engaged, motivated, and eager to learn as you progress through the course.

This training program is ideal for those new to quality assurance or interested in quality assurance such as new Quality Managers, Technical Leaders, new hires, or other roles that assist with quality assurance in the laboratory. Whether you are simply seeking to learn more about what the job entails or seeking tools to help you succeed in your job, this is for you!
