The best quality training

by the best quality people

New Zealand Quality College provides training courses

that enhance awareness of the many ways in which organisations
can improve performance

Our trainers work with regulators and standards bodies

helping to make the change process more effective for those having to
understand new requirements


Welcome to New Zealand Quality College’s website. We hope the new layout helps you find the courses that best meet your needs.

A very big welcome to our new General Manager, Boaz Habib:

Boaz joins New Zealand Quality College (NZQC) from an industry development background in the engineering sector, bringing his passion for life-long learning to our range of training programmes.

His diverse career includes experience in the pulp and paper, dairy and geothermal sectors in research and development, programme management and industry training roles.

Already equipped with a PhD in Chemical and Materials Engineering and a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours from the University of Auckland, Boaz is ‘walking-the-walk’ in terms of life-long learning, and will complete an Executive MBA from the University of Auckland by the end of this year.

A New Zealand resident for 25 years, Boaz was born in Pakistan, and spent the first 15 years of his life in the Middle East. Not surprisingly, he enjoys getting to know people from different backgrounds and being part of New Zealand’s rich multi-cultural community. He is also a big cricket fan!

I am excited to join IANZ as General Manager of the New Zealand Quality College and am looking forward to getting to know the wider IANZ team and trainers while building on existing relationships with clients and industry representatives".

The new ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Standard has been released. The college is running some transition courses to accommodate these changes. We anticipate only the staff who already have experience with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 would attend these one day courses. Please click on Laboratory Management on this page for dates and further details.

In fast moving fields such as the regulatory use of ISO/IEC 17020, NZQC is willing to provide extra courses if there is a demand. If you need training and the scheduled course is too far away, please contact the college. Scheduled ISO/IEC 17020 courses are generic; however if there is a demand NZQC can provide courses tailored to a specific field such as ISO/IEC 17020, for Territorial Authorities, Compliance Certifiers, Asbestos surveyors or Methamphetamine surveyors.


You can use the 'see all' option and/or the 'category' option to find other courses for 2019 dates.

If in doubt, email us at info@nzqc.co.nz.

We look forward to seeing you.
