A CQI and IRCA Certified ISO 9001:2015 Internal Quality Management Systems (QMS) Auditor training course (ref: A17953)

Internal auditing is fundamental to maintaining a Quality Management System. Not only does it help you assess your organisation’s compliance with requirements, but it also supports continual business improvement – a key Quality Management Principle of ISO 9001.

This two-day CQI and IRCA Certified ISO 9001 Internal Auditor training course is designed to teach attendees to plan and conduct internal QMS audits. They will learn how to play a full and active role in:

  • ensuring the adequacy of a Quality Management System
  • ensuring that the system is in compliance with ISO 9001:2015
  • managing the effectiveness of the documented system and efficiency of the operation
  • identifying opportunities for process and business improvement

This CQI & IRCA Internal Auditor course is designed to build upon delegates’ prior knowledge of ISO 9001 and teach them the skills to undertake internal audits of part of a QMS based on ISO 9001.

It is suitable for:

  • staff who will be involved in performing internal audits within their organisation
  • managers responsible for the effectiveness and efficiency of an operating unit
  • auditees who wish to understand the audit process

Anyone with little or no prior knowledge of ISO 9001 will benefit from first attending our Introduction to ISO 9001:2015 training course. Delivered the day before the Internal Auditor course, the introduction provides an understanding of the requirements (clauses) of ISO 9001 and of key quality management principles.
