CA ELAP opens registration for the 2016 TNI Quality system Documentation Workshop












California Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) has opened registration for fourteen sessions of the 2016 TNI Quality System Documentation Workshop in partnership with A2LA Workplace Training. Register here today!


The workshop runs from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (PT) with a break from noon to 1:00 pm on both days. This is a standalone training and you only need to register for one session. Only one person from each accredited laboratory may sign up. But don’t worry – we are recording the training and will post it on our website in the future so that everyone can watch.


“The TNI Documentation Training session was truly helpful, especially since our laboratory is at the start of our TNI transition. It opened our eyes on how to “read and understand” the TNI Standard, making it easier to set up the fundamental cornerstones aiding us with a smoother transition into TNI.”

~Susie Arredondo, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority Laboratory Manager


What will you learn?

This virtual workshop is an 8-hour overview of the 2016 TNI Standard Quality System requirements that provides all the materials you need to create a quality system for your laboratory. Class sizes are capped at 30 students per session to allow for interaction and discussion with the expert instructor and your classmates.

You will receive the following learner materials when you register. Attendees should perform at least a brief review of the materials and note any questions you have before coming to the training.

  • Templates: Fillable templates for 14 policies and procedure (Volume 1, Module 2) that can be directly implemented in your laboratory.

  • Requirements & Explanations: An extensive document describing the requirements, explanations, and context for key areas of the Standard with which accredited laboratories have historically struggled. They also include potential solutions your laboratory can customize for itself.

  • Examples of Policies & Procedures: Compliant and non-compliant policies and procedures are provided with explanations for why they do or do not comply with the 2016 TNI Standard. At least 3 compliant examples are provided for each clause covered in the course to help your laboratory implement a solution that best suits your processes.

  • Job Aid: A “quick-look” tool that can be used immediately in your laboratory to identify where the TNI Standard requires policies, procedures, and records. It can function as a quick checklist to ensure your laboratory complies.

Is there anything else I need to know? Take advantage of two Zoom breakout rooms during lunch each day! “Ask the Instructor” will be hosted by the trainer to answer TNI Questions, and “Ask ELAP” will be hosted by an ELAP staff member to answer ELAP-related questions.
