TAQA qualifications have replaced the previous qualifications of D34 and V1 for Internal Verifiers (IVs).
The qualification for IVs is now known as the Internal Quality Assurer (IQA) qualification, and we are approved by BIIAB, iCQ and SQA to deliver these IQA qualifications.
There are three qualifications available drawing on the three units in the TAQA suite of qualifications.

To be considered a “Qualified Internal Quality Assurer” you will need to obtain the Knowledge unit and the Practical unit.
If you are not yet in a role that enables you to undertake the Practical unit, you can still make a start on your career as an IQA by taking the Knowledge unit, which then positions you very favourably for opportunities to commence work as a practicing IQA.
We offer Face-to-face, On-line, and distance Supported Open Learning approaches.
The Face to Face approach is well liked by organisations who want an in-house delivery, and our series of Open Programmes is available for individuals who wish to take this approach – even though numbers are often quite small for our workshops.
The On-line approach makes use of technology to enable us to offer webcasts and webinars on a regular timed basis, which allows you to undertake your study in small bites at work or home spread over a number of weeks.
For individuals or teams that are geographically more dispersed, or those who prefer to work at a distance, the Supported Open Learning approach is proving very popular, using published workbooks, website additional reading, and email/web conference support from an adviser/assessor.
If you are interested in becoming an IQA, or need IQAs in your organisation, then let us know your requirements so that we can explore with you how you might be able to proceed in a time and cost effective way.
