"Our company was searching for a consultant to help us with a Quality Management System in order to obtain our AS9100 Certification. Another machine shop had worked with Erik in the past and highly recommended him. After interviewing several consultants, our team made the decision to work with Erik. So happy we made this decision. Erik has a vast knowledge of what it takes to put a QMS in place that is straight forward and user friendly. During the process of putting the QMS in place, Erik was always available to answer questions and helped us make sure we had forms that made sense for our business. This was a challenging task for our small team but with Erik’s expertise and guidance we were able to successfully reach or goal of obtaining our AS9100 Certification within our three-month time frame. We look forward to working with Erik to audit our system from time to time for years to come."
"Our experience with ESQG was great from start to finish. Several of our customers started requesting higher level quality certifications and needed to start the process quickly. They were able to accommodate us on short notice and assigned their top manager to our project. Communication throughout the process was clear and always available by email or phone 24/7. They helped us through each step of meeting the ISO9001 standards and adjusting our current system to make it efficient as possible. I would highly recommend them if you need assistance updating your quality management system quickly and effectively. Thank you ESQG!"
"ESQG has been helping us consistently with auditing for the past few years. Every year they come through our doors, it has been very knowledgeable and helpful. I've learned a lot from them over the years and always welcome a good debate when it comes to interpretation of clauses. They were detrimental in helping us get ISO9001 certified. They've always been available for support when we have questions to help improve our QMS."
"I contacted ESQG last year to assist my company with the AS9100 transition and turned out to be the best money we've ever spent for a consulting service. The staff are experienced and knowledgeable and always make themselves available to provide post-project support. I feel we're fortunate to have found a resource like ESQG and look forward to our next project together."
"Our company is a MIL/AERO supplier with design and manufacturing processes. We recently completed a rigorous three-day ISO 9001 Stage II Audit and were very pleased to have passed the audit with flying colors, zero findings! A big “THANK YOU!” goes to our consultants from ESQG, who made it possible for our company to achieve this success. With their support, we were able to implement improvements and fill all of the gaps that were identified during their careful assessment. They developed customized diagrams, specially tailored for our company, to layout our core processes and supported our performance of SWOT analysis which brought much clarity and focus on our key objectives. With the tools provided by ESQG, we were able to have a “clean” audit with no findings! Thank you ESQG. We couldn’t have done it without you!"
Let ESQG assist your organization with the documentation and implementation of your Quality Management System. We have streamlined our quality system using only what is mandatory to document, leaving a unique, clean and efficient system.

It is a simple, cheaper way to show your customers your internal system is compliant to the applicable standard within the organization with no red tape.

The state of CA ETP fund is reserved for incumbent [employed] workers. California is looking to provide an approx. $120 million in training funds for CA-based companies. Since the program started in 1981, the fund has never been depleted. The State of CA connects with agencies or directly with companies and assigns an annual training budget. Combined with [ETP] funding we have taken all work out of getting funding with a simple step program that we handle for your company. To coordinate funding for your company, we will work directly with your company, to determine which type of [ETP] contract will work best for your company's needs. We work together with you all the way from design to implementation and administration to make sure you are not only receiving the needed training but support on your funding needs from your current employee count and pay scale. The [ETP] fund is a part of the state of CA tax code, meaning the fund is replenished each year from the state payroll tax revenues. Get some of your hard-earned tax dollars back to work for you and your company.
ETP courses include:
QMS Implementation offset

Trainees must be full-time employees [>35 hours/week]. Trainees must earn a minimum of $16 per hour minus the cost of benefits, which generally comes out to $2.50 per hour [example would be an employee making $13.50 per hour with $2.50 going to benefits, total hourly package comes to $16 so that employee would qualify].
If unionized, a letter of acknowledgment is needed from the shop foreman on union letterhead. Trainees must remain employed throughout the duration of the training and 90 days after the training is completed.
ESQG vets and background checks all of our consultants to be the cream of the crop to what they are specifically consulting on.
