CLSI QMS03 Abstract

Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute guideline QMS03—Training and Competence Assessment provides the necessary background information and processes to develop training and competence assessment programs that meet regulatory and accreditation requirements and help ensure knowledgeable and competent personnel in all laboratory disciplines. An effective training program sets the expectation that personnel need to learn and apply the laboratory and organization’s processes and procedures. A competence assessment program ensures that personnel continue to perform the learned processes and procedures correctly so that the laboratory’s quality goals and objectives can be achieved. Training and competence assessment programs are important components of a QMS.
