As the PS Prep Program gains momentum attention has shifted from the selection of standards to creating the
infrastructure that can support the auditing process.
What can one expect to happen in a PS Prep audit? Are full audits the only choice for certification? How should an organization prepare for an audit, how should one select the standard to pursue, does the whole organization have to be certified at once, and what costs are associated with applying for certification? These and other practical questions will be addressed in our April program. If you are thinking about a PS Prep audit or perhaps in becoming an auditor - you should come to this meeting.
