The Challenge

The training classes offered by UT have been a valuable resource to our company and have helped strengthen our focus on providing a quality product to all of our customers.

— Wes McCubbin, Quality/ISO Manager

MEP's Role

Custom Packaging requested the assistance of the University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Services to provide ISO 9001:2015 Leadership and Internal Auditor training classes. University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Services resources had recently updated the center's ISO materials to reflect changes to the standard and staff were able to provide three days of in-house training for Custom Packaging. The training included a review of the updated standard, auditing best practices, and hands-on case studies allowing the participants to practice auditing their own processes.
