ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditing 2 Day Training

Driving QMS Improvement with Effective Internal Audits 

This course was developed considering the ISO 19011 standard and is designed to introduce the student to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system standard and prepare them to conduct effective internal audits. Interpretation of the QMS requirements and recognition of appropriate objective evidence to verify system implementation and effectiveness are addressed.  The “human factor” and ethics of auditing along with effective auditing techniques are presented along with case studies and other exercises to reinforce the concepts presented.
