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.

Delegates are recommended to have prior knowledge of ISO 22301 prior to attending this course. Some delegates may find it beneficial to attend our Understanding ISO 22301 Business Continuity Training Course prior to attending our ISO 22301 Internal Auditor training course. We offer a discount of £100 if booking the Understanding course alongside the Internal Auditor course, please contact us for more information.
