Affiliated Organisations and Partnerships | SQMC - Anchored in Quality

SQMC are ISO training providers to clients of Carnegie and Kilmarnock Colleges, BCS Associates and AVC Media. We also have offices and agencies in North and South America.


Andrew Carnegie Business School

Dedicated business training institution, the Andrew Carnegie Business School, offers an extensive range of developmental programmes and accredited qualifications – from certificated level to postgraduate – which are suitable for individuals at all managerial levels, and within any sector.

SQMC is responsible to develop the Business School’s ISO Management Systems customers, and have done so for many years.



Ayrshire College

For over 50 years, the (Kilmarnock) College has played a key role in working with East Ayrshire’s learners, communities and businesses. With a staff of over 300 and approximately 5,500 students enrolling annually, the College has an excellent reputation for providing full and part-time, evening and flexible education which constantly evolves to remain relevant and beneficial in our ever-changing society.

Working closely with the Faculty of Engineering Science (which offers an HNC in Quality Assurance, and HND in Quality Management), SQMC is responsible for the training of the College’s business customers who require ISO-related training and mentoring.



BCS Associates

Based within Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, BCS Associates are an established firm of three partners who possess in excess of 90 years experience between them; relating to the aerospace, engineering and further education sectors.  They were founded in 2010 with the mission to provide high quality training courses and development programmes for an illustrious client list, in aspects of Aviation, Quality and Organisational Development.

SQMC work closely with BSC to provide their customers with IRCA-accredited qualifications in areas of ISO 9001, TS 16949, and AS 9100 auditing.



SQMC North America

Given that SQMC Managing Director, Ian Hannah, began his career in Quality Control while contracted to Phillips Cable in Vancouver, it was befitting that a dedicated office was opened in British Columbia in the mid-2000s, to better serve our North American clientele.  As a young Quality Engineer in the late ‘60s / early ‘70s, Mr Hannah – a Canadian citizen, and Senior Member of the American Society for Quality – travelled extensively between plants from Nova Scotia to B.C., as well as the northern United States, applying his knowledge and formulising robust Quality Systems.



SQMC South America

Operating from its base in the vast metropolis of South America’s largest city, Sao Paulo, this is the latest extension to our Management Centre’s global Quality outreach, providing on-site ISO training solutions to Brazilian industry.
