Why book this course?

All businesses that operate to the requirements of either ISO 9001 (Quality) or ISO 14001 (Environmental) Management Systems need to carry out an annual internal audit of their entire management system. While this is chiefly done to retain the external certification, it also ensures that you are operating a robust and effective system.

Your own staff can carry out these internal audits, but need to demonstrate their impartiality and competence. Our Internal Auditing for Quality & Environmental Management Systems course equips staff to achieve this, steeping them in the auditing process, and giving them the tools to conduct an audit and file a comprehensive report.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for managers and staff with the responsibility for undertaking ISO9001 or ISO14001 internal auditing. 

While many elements of the course are specific to these ISO Management Systems, delegates will also learn auditing and analytical skills that can be applied more broadly.

What content will the course cover?

  • Background to the ISO 9000 and 14000 series and the external auditing process - the general requirements of internal auditing

  • The principles of auditing - reasons for auditing and audit objectives and approaches

  • Audit planning - the audit plan and audit preparation

  • Audit conduct - the opening and closing meeting

  • Audit reports - reporting, follow-up and close-out

  • Questions and answers.

What will I get out of the training?

Delegates will gain a renewed appreciation for the importance of internal auditing, and a better understanding of your specific responsibilities. By the end, you’ll know how to conduct an audit correctly, and how to report the results of the internal audit to both the management of the business and the external assessor.

At Kent Trainers, we’re proud to accommodate the needs of all businesses in our training. Our Internal Auditing for Quality & Environmental Management Systems course provides ample opportunity for delegates to ask questions of their trainers and peers, and receive tailored advice. This provides everyone with a unique learning experience that better serves their needs, and adds value to their business.

Louise Pearce

What is my experience?

I’ve worked extensively across both the Private and Public sectors. My experience has given me valuable insight into different strategic and operational approaches, business models and attitudes to both training and coaching which I have used to be able to adapt to different environments and requirements of organisations. My lifelong interest in developing people, led to a qualification in executive coaching and mentoring and this, coupled with my own ‘hands-on’ experience in the business world has allowed me to work with a whole range of organisations to develop both their individuals, teams and businesses to improve and adapt to change and challenges.

What is my area of expertise?

As a trainer and coach, I work with both individuals and groups of people on areas to develop themselves and their businesses qualitatively.  Process and performance management, managing change and remote leadership are key areas of expertise.  All these are linked by the use of both practical and psychological models, for delegates to take back and use in their workplace to ensure that the investment in training really benefits them and their business going forward.

Why I love inspiring others?

I believe that anyone, with a little support, can be the very best version of themselves that they want to be.  The blend of training and coaching gives me the amazing opportunity to witness people developing and growing into that best version of themselves – and there is no greater ‘buzz’ than that.
