Nigeria National Accreditation System is currently holding a 2-day phase 3 assessor training in batches in order to increase its assessor pool. The phase 3 training is usually the last stage of training before an individual can be considered qualified to be nominated for an assessment activity as the opportunity comes up. Those currently undergoing training for the phase 3 have earlier successfully completed the phases 1 and 2 stages. The assessors are mainly for ISO15189 (medical) and ISO/IEC17025 (Testing and Calibration) standards.
This initiative will increase the pool of national assessors available to NiNAS to carter for its expanding client base. This will enhance speedy and more qualitative assessment process. The first batch of the training is currently ongoing at NiNAS HQ at Asokoro, Abuja.
