The industry spoke, and we listened. J-E-T-S Quality Consultants’ latest program is based on feedback. Unfortunately, many organizations across various industries struggle with commercial grade dedication (CGD) and how to evaluate commercial suppliers. This one-day workshop uses the latest NRC information to lead attendees through a proven process, resulting in better understanding of commercial grade items and implementation.  Materials will be sent to attendees in advance to support the online instruction, discussion, and exercises.  

Our commercial grade dedication workshop is not a lecture-based program. Instead, it’s a workshop where attendees actively participate to find answers using references and examples built from real experience. Here is some feedback from a recent presentation:

  • “All procurement/engineering personnel should attend this.”
  • “Makes commercial grade easier to understand – thanks!”
  • “Moved quickly; covered what I needed to know – good use of time.”
  • “Nuances of commercial grade dedication made clear – I get it!”
  •  "Wow - just what I needed!  Like giving us the keys to CGD"
