ISO 45001 : 2018 Internal Auditor – CQI/IRCA Certified

This Interactive and very practical ‘classroom-based’ course guides delegates through the entire OHSMS internal audit process. Delegates perform each key stage of the audit process so that, over the two days, they conduct a complete internal audit.  This ensures delegates gain the skills, knowledge, techniques and understanding that ensure a successful audit as well as a positive and successful working relationship with the auditee.

The CQI and IRCA Certified Training course is designed to be enjoyable whilst simultaneously providing the confidence, knowledge and skills for delegates to subsequently perform effective internal audits within their own organisations.

The focus of the course is on understanding and applying the ‘skills’ needed to be a successful OHSMS internal auditor. Here lectures are kept to a minimum, with learning provided through exercises, discussion, role play and presentations from attendees. This includes performing a realistic and simulated internal audit on a Company with a fully functioning ISO 45001:2018 system. This course develops the necessary skills to assess and report on the conformance and implementation of processes based on ISO 45001:2018.  You’ll learn how to initiate an audit, prepare and conduct audit activities, compile and distribute audit reports and complete follow-up activities.

IRCA courses are run in partnership with QMS Skills who are the approved training partner.
