This fall, the College of Business Administration will offer to both UDM students and the public a week-long intensive ISO9000 Lead Auditor Training course which allows members of the business community to receive Lead Auditor training and work toward ISO9000 Lead Auditor Certification. After completing the training and conducting four or five audits, students will be able to seek certification. The course also provides an opportunity for students to earn three college credits in one week.

Courses will be taught by either CEEM, a division of the British Standards Institute, or by Deloitte and Touche (www.deloitte.com). While CEEM has traditionally offered this course, last March Delotte and Touche delivered the course. Deloitte has also agreed to allow students from the class to participate in audits, thus helping them toward their certification. College of Business Administration alumna Cheryl Franks Denman (MBA '97) was instrumental in getting Deloitte and Touche involved.

"The course is very rigorous," says Tony Drommi, Coordinator of Instructional Technology for the College of Business Administration, "You give up your life for the week, but it's worth it, because you earn three credits and it looks great on a resume."

He adds that opening the course to the public allows students to interact with members of the business community.

Lead Auditor Training courses can also be arranged for a company that has a number of employees who want to take the course. For more information about Lead Auditor Training at UDM or at your place of business, contact Tony Drommi at (313) 993-3337, or e-mail drommia@udmercy.edu.
