The audit team has given a straight judgment on strengths and points-to-notice in the College’s ISO standard quality management system and reported on strengths in the system adoption, quality of lecturers, staffs, and filing system…At the time of auditing, the College’s quality management system has basically met the required operational criteria and the College’s operations. However, the audit team has also noted minor aspects in the system: the coordination among units should be more closely built and streamlined; the monitoring of project progress should be implemented in certain units; and, for newly-integrated centers, new ISO procedures should be re-established in conformity with the objectives and orientations.
The College’s Board of ISO Management has recorded and received contributing opinions from the audit team and has decided to have appropriate adjustments. In the upcoming years, TDC will continue to maintain and better implement ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System as a commitment to the College’s training objectives, quality and brand. In March 2014, experts from Intertek will coordinate with the College’s Board of ISO Management to provide a training course in the deployment, maintenance and annual audit of the system for leaders and persons in charge of ISO system of departments, faculties and centers.
