Q1 Q2 (API) and ISO Training & Assesment added to Fearnley Procter’s NS-1 & NS-2 Capability

Getting the Training you need in Q1 or Q2 for your company’s position in the Oil & Gas Industry – and then where needed the Assessment Certification – can be a lengthy and expensive process.

Knowing who you can rely on to complete the job Efficiently, Professionally and Cost-effectively – can prove difficult.

Fearnley Procter have been providing ‘Training Solutions and Certification’, plus ‘Audit and Assessment’ of quality management systems, equipment manufacture and inspection, for over 20 years on a global basis. And supporting the industry locally in Dubai/Abu Dhabi since opening our office here 9 years ago.

Because of this Knowledge and Experience, we can design both the Training you initially need and then the Audit that follows – so that it matches your companies objectives from either the products & services  you supply – or those you purchase.

Initially the Training can be provided either as part of courses held at our own Training Centre in Aberdeen and Dubai – or held at your own offices. Courses are provided separately on Q1 and Q2 but in principle cover similar topics:

1 day Awareness – suitable for gaining the knowledge needed at the start or to educate others as to what the Q1 or Q2 specifications set down and how to move forward to meet them.

3 day Internal Auditor – for those who need to assess the condition of their own company, complete internal audits and eventually undertake those required for preparation of the final 3rd party independent assessment.

5 day Lead Auditor – will give your team the knowledge of how to complete external audits of suppliers to make sure that they meet the requirements of Q1 & Q2.

For end-users –  these courses will help you insure that your suppliers meet the quality management requirements of Q1 or Q2.

For suppliers – once training certification and assessment is completed – not only will you be in a position to show that you meet those requirements but you would also qualify for an ISO 9001:2015 certificate. In fact if you already hold an ISO Certificate acquiring Q1 or Q2 certification will be less expensive.

You will also gain additional benefits as the NS-1™ & NS-2™ Accreditation Programme includes Q1 or Q2 assessment. So you can add the Q1/Q2 Certification to your NS-1™/NS-2™ Approval or add a NS-1™/NS-2™ Approval to your Q1/Q2 Certification – and at a reduced cost – as we do both. 

Finally – if you book any combination of training & accreditation in Q1, Q2, NS-1™ or NS-2™ (DS-1® and API RP7G-2 are covered in our NS-2™ courses) or you are a NS-1™ or NS-2™ Standard holder – there are discounts on the total prices available thorough our Client Discount Programme.

Fearnley Procter International
quality management system certification to Spec Q1 (API) and Spec Q2 (API) standards with ISO 9001 soon to follow.

We believe combining the content of these three Quality Management Systems with our own end product knowledge and operations experience will provide a unique service that will benefit both the end user and the supplier.

Manufacturers and service supply organisations may apply for one or more of these certifications, perhaps even bundling them with NS-1™ or NS-2™ Accreditations. To bring efficiency and costs savings, Fearnley Procter International will organise single, simultaneous, annual audits to verify ongoing compliance to all these specifications and to highlight deficiencies that could lead to costly Non-Productive Time.

Training Courses Available

When you implement Spec Q1 and/or Spec Q2 we are here to ensure you get the most out of your Quality Management System and make the process as smooth as possible.

You may also need to make sure that people are trained to effectively implement Spec Q1 and/or Spec Q2. Our one-day courses help that process.

Gain confidence in planning and performing an effective audit, as well as reporting and taking action where necessary.

This course will allow you develop the knowledge and skill required to conduct a full audit of an organisations Quality Management System (QMS) internally and externally to Spec Q1 or Spec Q2 and gain the confidence to effectively audit a QMS in accordance with internationally recognised best practice techniques.
