This course builds on our Custom ISO 9001 Internal Auditor Training by offering a more in-depth review of ISO 9001 requirements and including additional content geared to setting up an audit program, leading and managing other auditors, and audit reporting. The ‘virtual live classroom’ training also gives attendees greater exposure to practical auditing techniques thanks to supervised exercises completed at your company.

While the course can be taken at any stage of your ISO project, taking it early can also support your implementation efforts – if you have completed most of your documentation.
