Integrated Lead Auditor – 5 Days

This five day course is the premier standard in training for auditors.  It takes the skills and knowledge of auditors to the level necessary for conducting effective third party and external audits of Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety management systems.

The course is challenging and highly participative.  It involves the use of advanced learning techniques in all of the group sessions.  It is designed to stretch the delegates and the tutor, such that everyone involved gets the most from the event.  The course has a two hour examination at the conclusion.  Participants must successfully complete the practical work and the exam.

The course also features a range of scenarios that a Lead Auditor will experience and helps them to understand how to interpret these situations in an auditing environment.  The scenarios are drawn from ‘rea’ life’ situations and are designed to challenge the delegates concepts of quality, the environment and health & safety and interpretation of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018.

The course culminates in one of the few opportunities that those wishing to attend a course of this nature could experience, namely a Live Audit.  This gives the delegates the opportunity to take their learning out of the conference room and into the real world.  The opportunities this gives to the delegates is unique and allows the team to experience and respond to real live situations.  A learning opportunity that is not to be missed!
