ISO 14001, ISO 9001 Consulting & Training

BCI Academy is a leading North American provider of management and business systems solutions such as assessment, training and consulting services to the manufacturing and service organizations.

BCI Academy provides consulting and training services to the organization seeking for better and cost effective solutions to meet their business goals and objectives. Management systems implementation, Business operations improvements, and Risk management are our core competencies.

We operate from Toronto, Canada as our base for clients around the world.

We Consult, Train, Coach and Develop ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and IATF 16949 standards and their related systems, skills and protocol for clear and easy-to-use oversight and operational systems. Our many years of experience with ISO 9001 stem from the earliest versions.

Our ISO 14001 staff also has a long history of experience; almost from the beginning its development.

Extensive Knowledge of IATF 16949 was gained both from our hands-on past job positions, as well as by being certified and registered as IATF Certified Automotive Auditors for many years. Again, this was from the beginning of the automotive standard which started as QS 9000 from the “big 3” OEM’s as early as 1995. Experience we have!

Our services seek to find effective solutions that are designed to meet business goals, objectives and customer satisfaction. We set up, train, perform audits of several types (see below) and develop the internal company operational systems for improvements that yield crisp and easy to follow intuit processes. From record keeping to local instructions and to various procedures, we use our philosophy of using Risk Management as a core with any strategy related to ISO 9001, IATF 16949 or ISO 14001.

As well as the related management systems and skills are outlined as follows:       

  • Coaching more than training is our approach for hands on skills and knowledge
