Learn how to conduct effective and value adding laboratory quality system internal audits on our 2-day ISO 17025 Internal Auditor training course.

Internal auditing enables laboratories to demonstrate their competence and ability to deliver valid calibration and test results. It is also invaluable in driving continued improvement.

This ISO 17025 Internal Auditor training course explains how to plan and carry out effective audits of a laboratory quality management system.

The course gives delegates the opportunity to practise their skills through interactive sessions, workshops and role plays, around topics such as audit situations, audit interviews and closing meetings.

This 2-day course is suitable for anyone who is or intends to be involved in auditing the performance of laboratories, and to support their continuing improvement. This includes:

  • those wishing to perform internal laboratory audits against ISO 17025
  • laboratory managers, quality managers and supervisors
  • existing internal auditors who would like to expand their skills to audit laboratory practices against ISO 17025
  • those responsible for ensuring the laboratory management system is effectively implemented and maintained

The course is also appropriate for those seeking to gain or maintain ISO 17025 accreditation, and need to undertake internal audits at planned intervals.

For anyone with little or no prior knowledge of ISO 17025 we recommend attending our Introduction to ISO 17025 training course, delivered the day before the Internal Auditor course, so they can first gain an understanding of the requirements of ISO 17025.  We offer a discount of £100 when booking these courses together.
