CAQA Resources has carved a niche for itself in the field of instructional resource development, largely owing to its rigorous process that ensures the highest quality. This process involves a collaboration between experienced instructional designers, subject matter experts, and compliance specialists. Below, we unpack each step of our resource development process.
We initiate our process by collaborating with instructional designers who possess both high qualifications and extensive industry experience. These designers consult with subject matter experts to craft materials that are not only academically rigorous but also aligned with the latest industry standards and curriculum changes.
Before our training and assessment resources reach you, they undergo a preliminary validation process. Our compliance specialists, who bring in over 20 years of validation experience, assess each material to ensure they meet regulatory and quality standards.

All resources are then structured and styled according to our most recent style guide, ensuring uniformity and readability.
Finally, our compliance experts conduct a last round of quality and compliance checks to verify the integrity of the materials.
Once verified, these materials are uploaded to our website, registered in our copyright register, and then distributed to our clients.
