Internal Auditor Training

Internal auditing is a key requirement of all ISO standards. In order for internal audits to be effective tools, auditors must be competent, not only in the standards themselves but also in the technique of auditing. Our training courses provide learners with the knowledge and skills they need in order to develop into competent internal auditors.

The courses are delivered in-house for up to 8 people at a time. Single system training lasts 2 days while internal auditor training for 3 systems takes 3 days. Courses can be tailored to suit client needs but the following is a typical breakdown for a 3-day course.

Day 1 - Introduction to standards (ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS18001/ISO45001)

In order to be able to conduct effective internal audits, auditors must be familiar with the requirements of the standards. This session gives an introduction to the 3 standards and provides a brief explanation of the clause requirements.
