My overall experience with Batalas was very welcoming. Staff went above and beyond expectations.
Hannah Selvey, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, July 2018
Yet another brilliant course from Batalas. I have to say our trainer was outstanding! A lot of ground had to be covered over the week but he guided us through in a way that never felt rushed. He took great care to make sure everyone had the opportunity to question and probe what was being presented, constantly checking no one was being left behind. His energy and enthusiasm (plus sharp wit!) powered us on through the week and I was completely amazed by his acting skills during the role plays (I am thinking RADA material?) Please convey my sincere thanks to the trainer !!
Lisa Dancer, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, June 2018
Dave is an amazing tutor who draws on great real world experiences to deliver an insightful, entertaining and thoroughly informative course.

Vrushali Shirode,Svas Quality, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, November 2017
Really enjoyed the course. Excellent venue (Birmingham), great facilities, ideal location. Tutor was brilliant, really knowledgeable on the subject, and kept the “pace” of the lessons at just the right tempo. I would highly recommend this course for all Quality personnel who have to carry out 1st and 2nd party audits
Paul Dolan, EJ Bowman (Birmingham) Ltd, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, October 2017
David made the whole course very engaging. Evidently a very experienced trainer, with a genuine interest in area of auditing, who very successfully kept the group motivated, fully engaged and on schedule. Would highly recommend Batalas to anyone looking to take a course in auditing
Adrian Gaunt, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, June 2017
Overall good. Live audit was a good way to learn and Steve (trainer) was really good at the role playing which made it much easier!
Louise Jones, MoD, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, Mar 2017
I am from an H&S background and found some of the clauses regarding documenting challenging , against my instinct, David was able to help me understand the relation between the different ISO… outstanding Tutor
Paul Ormsby, Bidvest Foodservice, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, December 2016
Dennis was very good with his delivery of this course, it’s a lot to fit in a short space of time! He provided some very good techniques in terms of asking the right questions in an audit situation and gave us some great advise throughout
Ben Klink, Inspectorate International Ltd, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, November 2016
Good course with plenty of practical examples and lots of interaction
Jovana Jevtic, Bard Pharmaceuticals, ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, October 2016
