Bywater Excel - Auditing Courses and Training

ISO 9001:2015 Internal QMS Auditor Course (IRCA certified) - 2-Day Course

BywaterExcel's highly interactive and practical course is designed to develop delegates' skills to apply the ISO 9001 process audit principles and conduct Quality Management System (QMS) audits in order to:

  • Develop effective auditing techniques, improve evaluation and identify opportunities for improvement which contribute to an organisation's growth and success
  • Objectively assess the compliance of an organisation
  • Contribute to the requirements to register as an IRCA Auditor.

This training course introduces the delegate to auditing as a powerful management tool. Through practical workshops and simulated audit interviews, you learn how to conduct effective process audits within your organisation. You will also learn how to plan, structure and conduct an internal audit, including the evaluation of effective corrective action.

The ISO 9001 Internal QMS Auditor course is certified by IRCA (The International Register of Certificated Auditors)  (ref: 17179) and a certificate is issued on completion of the course providing part of the training requirement for certification as an Auditor with IRCA.
