This integrated management systems internal auditor programme combines the disciplines of quality, environmental and health & safety management auditing based on the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 standards.

The two day interactive training programme is designed for those who need to be able to understand and apply recognised principles and techniques of effective management system auditing to quality, environmental and health & safety management systems.

The modern management systems auditor cannot rely on procedural auditing, but also needs to be able to audit processes with an emphasis on risk-based thinking. An effective audit will bring benefits to your organisation and ensure the integrated management system (IMS) continues to meet its objectives.

Internal auditors need to understand their role and responsibilities and be sufficiently competent in evaluating the IMS effectively.

This course focuses delegates on the most important attributes of an IMS and helps them to understand the role of the auditor in its development and continual improvement.


Duration: 2 days, 9.00 – 17.00
