The law, environmental regulators, your customers and shareholders expect the highest standards of environmental protection. ISO 14001:2015 is the International Standard for environmental management systems. ISO 19011 sets out the requirements for auditing environmental management systems based on ISO 14001. These practical courses give you all you need to know about using ISO 14001 and internal environmental auditing to manage and enhance your impact on the environment.
This 2-day course will enable you to conduct environmental management system audits within your organisation. You will learn about the structure of ISO 14001:2015 and how to structure, execute and report an audit effectively. On successful completion of the course you will be awarded an CQI IRCA approved certificate.
At the end of the course, a participant will know:
