All ADVISORS courses will follow a rigorous Quality Control process outlined in the Course Administration Process Flow which is based on ADVISORS approved APMG International Quality Manual.

An Administrator from ADVISORS will be the main role to carry out this process, although it is envisaged that the Trainer or the Lead Trainer could take over for strategically important customers. Furthermore, some specific activities have specific roles requirements, especially courses that include the official exam (e.g. invigilators, scan & shred operators).
