I have received group training provided by A2LA for both Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty and ISO/IEC 17025 and Laboratory Accreditation off site and although this was excellent training and helped me greatly in moving forward with implementing ISO/IEC 17025 my take away from the recent on-site training I received was exponentially greater.
The ability to customize and target specific areas of training and the ability to utilize real data in the curricula along with the more personalized approach to the training really paid off in getting much more out of a training session. The instructor was an expert in his field that applied his own personnel touch to the training and couples with the ability to interact directly across a table with an expert and not compete with a room full of people from different laboratories across a wide spectrum of backgrounds made this training that much more beneficial to me.
I can with great confidence state that any of my future training needs will be done on-site so that I can get the maximum out of whatever subject and or curricula we are trying to learn.
