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

What will I get out of the training?
