The QP job requires interaction with others. It is so much more than sitting at the desk certifying batches. A QP is not expected to have all the necessary qualifications and experience from day one. But a QP needs to learn and grow in the role. Education and knowledge are important for fulfilling the tasks and responsibilities. Besides that, experience and soft skills are important when it comes to interacting with colleagues, management, other departments and authorities. Soft skills help the QP to function in teams and organisations as a whole.
New colleagues becoming QPs, but also experienced QPs looking for continuous training and enhancement of their soft skills.
