Day 1: Understanding Internal Auditing The first day commenced with an overview of internal auditing principles, emphasizing its significance in ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and optimizing organizational processes. Participants delved into various auditing techniques, including risk-based auditing and process auditing, through interactive sessions and case studies.
Day 2: Implementing Quality Management Systems Day two was dedicated to exploring Quality Management Systems (QMS) and their pivotal role in enhancing product and service quality. Workshops and discussions revolved around QMS frameworks such as ISO 9001, highlighting the steps involved in QMS implementation, documentation, and continual improvement.
Day 3: Practical Application and Case Studies The third day involved hands-on exercises and real-world case studies, allowing participants to apply their knowledge gained from the previous sessions. Through group activities and simulations, participants honed their auditing skills and addressed challenges commonly encountered during internal audits and QMS implementation. A fun role playing game was organised where teams had to audit each other. 
Day 4: Advanced Topics and Certification The final day focused on advanced topics such as auditing for regulatory compliance, auditing in specialized industries, and preparing for certification audits. Participants received guidance on obtaining relevant certifications and enhancing their professional credentials in the field of internal auditing and quality management. The participants were asked to create their own SOPs and QPS which were then discussed. 
A small examination was conducted to test the understanding of the subject following which the certificates were distributed. 
Dr Neeraj Jain, course coordinator  and Dr Rinu Goyal, member of MELAP, respectively, also interacted with the participants which led to an interesting doubt-clearing session. 
 The efforts taken by all the teams who are all newbies to the subject, must be lauded. Heartfelt thanks to all the help by the non-teaching staff in setting up the venue for the day. All smiles for the big picture!
