ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditor Training

(both days of this training must be attended)
Create a successful ISO Audit Team in 2 Days. An effective Internal Audit program is a big part of maintaining your management system, customer satisfaction, making company-wide improvements and compliance. If your Internal Auditors are not well trained, you run a risk of investing a great deal of time and resources and failing to achieve the benefits of being ISO registered. This course will meet that need – it is designed to increase your understanding of auditing techniques and will take you step-by-step through the stages of an internal audit from audit planning to closure and follow up.
· Fully understand ISO 9001:2015 requirements including an introduction to the different audits.
· Fully understand the 5 states of the internal audit process including audit program/schedule.
· Plan and conduct effective internal audits.
· Properly present audit findings.
· Engage in a risk-based audit approach from planning through process documentation to testing, analysis, and reporting.

Testimonial from March 2017 ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditor training – “The breakdown of each standard was exceptional – finally makes sense in an easy fashion for me. Great overall, very entertaining training on what “could” be a dry subject.” – Patricia Spicer, Production Manager, Chroma Technology
