ISO 9001 IMS Internal Auditing course

“4 Day ISO 14001:2015 Internal Auditing” is a competency-based three-day course that focuses on auditing management systems using ISO 19011:2018 Standard guidelines to evaluate the level of conformance of an organization’s processes against the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 Standard. The course builds upon the knowledge gained from “ISO 14001:2015 Requirements” 2 day course and augments the understanding and intent of guidelines of the ISO 19011:2018 Standard. It explains the roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of an auditor – from the audit initiation stage through audit follow-up stage – through the use of real life examples as applied to various business and industry sectors. The auditing approach can be applied for internal auditing, supplier auditing, customer-initiated auditing and accreditation/certification auditing as an auditor. This course covers competencies EM (2 day environmental management system requirements) and AU (1 day auditing) that can be taken consecutively or simultaneously.
