Internal audits identify whether the organisation conforms to its own requirements for a Business Continuity Management System (BCSM) and the requirements of ISO 22301. Auditing also assists in ensuring the management system is effectively implemented and maintained.

This two day ISO 22301 Internal Auditor training course incorporates engaging modules to teach delegates the knowledge required to undertake internal audits of a BCMS and interactive workshops to practise skills learnt, for example, nonconformity writing workshops.

  • Introduction to auditing
  • The role of an Internal Auditor
  • Auditor skills
  • Overview of ISO 22301:2019 clauses
  • The audit programme
  • Audit planning
  • Documented information
  • Business impact analysis and risk assessment
  • Business continuity plans and procedures
  • Opening and closing meetings
  • Audit checklists
  • Non-conformity report writing
  • Corrective action

  • Those responsible for undertaking internal audits against ISO 22301:2019
  • Managers responsible for implementing, maintaining and continually improving a business continuity management system
  • Those seeking to ensure conformity with the stated business continuity policy
  • Those responsible for monitoring and reviewing the performance of the BCMS

For delegates with little or no prior knowledge of ISO 22301 we recommend attending our Understanding ISO 22301 Business Continuity Training Course (delivered the day before the Internal Auditor course) to gain an understanding of the requirements (clauses) of ISO 22301. We offer a discount of £100 if booking these courses together.

Learn more about prior knowledge requirements and test your understanding with our ISO 22301 Quiz.

On completion delegates will:

  • summarise audit findings and discuss these within the closing meeting
  • contribute to the continual improvement of the BCMS

An ISO 22301 Internal Auditor Training Course certificate will be received by delegates who attend and complete all elements of the course.
