Getting Started

ISO/IEC 17065 is the Product Certification Body standard and this course is to help you understand what it asks of Certification Bodies who wish to demonstrate conformance to its requirements.

This course consists of 7 Chapters and contains the same material as the IAS in-class course on 17065.

Please take each of the 7 Chapters listed in the menu to the left and, when you have finished, proceed to the course evaluation and the quiz at the end of the course
