RABQSA International Inc (RABQSA), in conjunction with BSI Group America Inc, has developed the medical devices competency unit. The medical devices competency unit has been created for individuals wishing either to become trained to audit to the ISO 13485 standard or understand the requirements of a medical devices quality management system.
Training Provider and Examiner Certification Scheme (TPECS) is a modular, RABQSA competency-based training certification designed to reflect learning and audit practices and industry expectations, as well as demonstrate that individuals achieve the level of knowledge and skill competency required for RABQSA personnel certification.
The training module allows for flexibility in course content and duration. BSI has developed a streamlined approach allowing individuals to expand their certification in fewer training days. The TPECS modular approach also gives students the ability to expand their certification through taking additional subsets of courses.
