This ISO 14001 lead auditor course helps you develop the skills required to carry out a full environmental management system (EMS) audit. 

Over 40 hours of directed study we will be your partner in learning, guiding you through every step in the auditing process from initiation to follow-up, in accordance with existing international management system auditing guidelines, ISO 19011:2018. With support from our expert tutors, you will learn how to effectively plan, conduct, report and follow-up a management system audit to ISO 14001:2015 standard. 

Based on the latest techniques, the ISO 14001 lead auditor course helps you to explain the purpose of an audit to key stakeholders. On successful course attendance, and completion of an IRCA examination, you will leave with a CQI and IRCA certified training course certificate.
