Quality Assurance Meetings & Content Updates

ILMs are updated once per year in May/June during an annual development cycle process.  Module updates may include corrections to errors in previously released versions, changes resulting during the Quality Assurance process and changes resulting from more extensive content updates and development.  Please see the Quality Assurance Meeting section and Module Updates section below for more information.


Quality Assurance Meetings

ILM Quality Assurance (QA) meetings are scheduled once per year for each trade.  The purpose of the QA meeting is to address comments, feedback and recommendations received for module errors, issues and potential changes.  These facilitated meetings involve a collaborative discussion and decision-making process between various trades training providers and subject matter experts.  Results from the QA meetings help to inform future module changes and updates. 

Please see the table below for the list of scheduled QA meetings.  If you have comments or feedback you would like to be addressed during these meetings, please leave a comment for the relevant module on the Comments page (account login required). 

N.B.: Dates may change if scheduling conflicts arise.
