EMS Auditing provides a proactive mechanism not only for identifying non-conformances to agreed practices, which could prejudice good performance, but also for identifying opportunities for enhancing performance. Properly focused, it is a key process both for ensuring compliance with ISO 14001 and for driving continuous improvement in an organisation’s environmental performance.
This ISO 14001 Lead Auditor training course delivers its learning through theory, case studies and workshop sessions, including some group evening work. It is IEMA, CQI and IRCA certified and fully meets the classroom training requirements for EMS Auditor registration. The course is assessed by continuous assessment and an examination, and is based on ISO 14001:2015.
