Management Systems Training - Internal Auditor

This innovative 2-day course is suitable for delegates seeking to improve their auditing skills as well as for those learning to become auditors.

Many clients are now using Lucideon to provide onsite training tailored to the specific needs of their organisation. The training is delivered at a location which is convenient for you and avoids unnecessary travel time for your people. Training can be delivered anywhere in the UK or internationally.

It is a general auditing course and is therefore relevant for any organization that is seeking to implement a management system to standards including ISO 50001, ISO 14001: 2015, OHSAS 18001: 2007, ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 27001 and the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) or for those who are wishing to obtain the Wildlife Trusts' Biodiversity Benchmark.

The course is highly interactive and enables delegates to learn through discussion and practice. In the first two days, there are eight exercises and no PowerPoint presentations!

Course Objectives

The course will cover the following:

  • The role of an auditor
  • Understand the structure of an audit
  • The key elements of preparing for an audit
  • The principles and techniques of conducting an audit
  • The key elements of audit reporting.

Course Delivery and Content

The method of delivery is informal and interactive. A variety of exercises are established creating opportunities for questions and group discussion. Days 1 & 2 are consecutive.

Day 1:
What is auditing? What is its purpose? And structure? What's involved in audit preparation? And in conducting an audit?
Delegates are then required to undertake preparation for a 40-minute scenario-based audit which they will complete as part of Day 2.
Delegates also prepare to become auditees in order to be able to assist in the completion of audits.

Day 2:
The learning outcomes from the audits are discussed; common problems are identified, and good practice is commended.
The findings from the audits are then identified and discussed. The concept of non-conformance is introduced and applied to the findings from the audit.

The following two days are only available for on-site training.
Day 3:
Auditors will be allowed to present their findings and non-conformances (if relevant) from their workplace audits. These are then discussed by the group. Day 3 reinforces some of the learning outcomes from Days 1 and 2. These learning outcomes are captured by the tutor as "Auditor Do's & Don'ts" and circulated to all delegates.

Day 4:
A detailed study - from an auditor's perspective - of a specific standard; one of OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 50001:2011 and EU ETS as appropriate.
