During the course, much attention is paid to 'soft skills' and change management. As a result, participants will be able to initiate a QRM project, carry out the analysis phase of a QRM implementation and support its implementation.

The programme is delivered by Belgian QRM experts, including several hard-skill trainers and one soft-skill trainer. More information about the trainers can be found here. The training sessions will be in Dutch.


At the end of the course, you can take part in the QRM Institute's certification exam if you wish. The knowledge of the participants is tested by means of a written theoretical exam. The implementation skills are tested by having the participants work out a case study.
The exam can be taken at home.  

Successful completion of the exam leads to the 'QRM Institute Silver' degree, on condition that at least 75% of the training course was also attended. After this training, you can also participate in the 'QRM Institute Gold' follow-up training. The 'QRM Institute Silver' training is given in several countries, thus the certification will also be valid abroad. 

For whom?

The course is aimed specifically at managers and executives with an interest in QRM, internal improvement coordinators and external consultants. 


Participants receive the following documentation:

  • an extensive documentation folder with the slides and case studies
  • the Dutch version of the book 'It's about time' by Rajan Suri
