BOOROONGEN Djugun College near Kempsey is celebrating its 17th year of successfully achieving AS/NZ ISO:9001 quality certification, one of only a handful of organisations on the Mid North Coast to carry the prestigious five-tick certification.
Originally assessed for quality ISO certification in 2001, the college has successfully passed each annual audit undertaken to measure compliance to the rigorous certification. Late last year Booroongen Djugun College’s audit identified no non-conformances again for the 17th year running, with SIA Global granting them an upgrade to the latest standard, ANZ/ISO 9001:2016.
“The excellent result of the transition to the latest ISO accreditation is due to the college staff. The result is a reflection of their total commitment to student services and continual improvement of the college’s systems” director of Training and Services, Faith March, said.
Offering 25 courses, from Certificate II to Diploma, in areas of Business, Aged Care, Health, Community Services, and Conservation and Land Management, Booroongen Djugun executive management believe their continued commitment to quality allows them to best support their students.
‘”We are very proud of our organisation’s contribution towards the continuation of our ISO quality certification. Applying best-practice to our administration processes means we can focus our resources to our students delivering high quality training, mentoring and tutoring so they can excel” director of Operations, Val March OAM, said.
As part of maintaining the ISO quality certification, regular compulsory course feedback is undertaken by students to gauge their satisfaction with the performance of their trainers, and desktop spot audits ensure administrative compliance to all areas of operation, especially legislative requirements as a Registered Training Organisation.
