Headquarters Academic Group


Quality is everyone’s responsibility and we never have to stop getting better.” – Edwards Deming

As bearers of quality standards in the field of education, the Headquarters Academic Group under the leadership of BGEN JOSE DEMAR A PAULY COP once again maintained its ISO 9001:2015 Certification for its continuous adherence to the prescribe quality standards in providing the best quality of academic instructions to the Cadet Corps Armed Forces of the Philippines. This certification which is valid from 31 December 2022 until 16 December 2025 was conferred by the TUV Rheinland Philippines, a certifying body that assess the compliance of the Group to the set standards of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In this Re-certification Audit, the auditors scrutinized various parts of the HAG’s Quality Management System such as its Quality Policy and Objectives, Context of Organization, Curriculum Design and Development, Classroom Management and Procedures, Financial and Procurement Management and Maintenance of its equipment and facilities.

Finding no major gaps in its established processes and noted remarkable findings on the Group’s quality performance, the auditors recommended the re-certification of the Headquarters Academic Group’s ISO 9001:2015 Certification.


With this notable achievement, the Headquarters Academic Group assures its stakeholders that providing the best quality of academic instruction will always be the unit’s top priority.

ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard that defines the guiding principles in providing a quality service to its stakeholders and other relevant interested parties in the most efficient manner possible. The standard also requires that the Quality Management System of the organization must be improved continuously to respond competently to the needs of its stakeholders through a risk-based thinking approach.

On 21 November 2022, to prove the Group’s adherence to the set ISO standards, the Headquarters Academic Group submitted its Quality Management System to an extensive and comprehensive audit by the TUV Rheinland Philippines led by its Management System Lead Auditor, Ms Maribeth Lucanas.
