This 5-day course is designed to provide participants with a methodology and the skills for leading internal audits of your company.
Internal audits are a requirement of most global standards that are based on ISO9001:2008 including ISO14001, ISO18001, ISO13485, AS9101, TS16949, ISO20000.
While most internal auditor courses teach the philosophy of internal auditing, this course provides a “how-to” approach. Participants will know what to do, how to do it, and will be able to get into action immediately.
