This programme has been specifically developed to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills to carry out effective internal audits, incorporating the process approach. The training will cover the basic requirements of ISO9001:2000, and the auditing approach is fully compliant with the requirements of this international standard.


Deleages are likely to be responsible for carrying out audits, either internally or at suppliers. However, those who are new to auditing and those who wish to bring their skills up to date will also benefit from this course. Prior auditing or systems experience is not required.
