Teaching & Learning about Quality

The quality and reliability of laboratory testing depends on the skills of the people working in the labs, which is why training is such an important part of the Quality Initiative.

Our training programs are designed to increase awareness, share knowledge and promote capacity building among laboratory personnel.

From face-to-face training to digital formats like MOOC: we adapt our educational tools and methods to meet the expectations and needs of learners.

One of the main objectives of any quality approach is the continuous improvement of the know-how and skills of laboratory teams. L’Initiative s’engage à sensibiliser et former le personnel de laboratoire sur l’importance de la qualité.
