IRCA Certified ISO 9001:2015 Auditor Transition Training Course

Are you an ISO 9001:2008 Internal or Lead Auditor who wants to develop the expertise to audit an ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS)? This course is ideal for existing auditors as it combines the 1-day ‘ISO 9001:2015 Transition’ course with an additional day of auditing activities. You’ll learn how ISO 9001:2015 is different to ISO 9001:2008 and apply this practically in order to build your ISO 9001:2015 auditing skill.

You will sit a 30 minute exam to test your knowledge and understanding.

If you have previously attended one of our IRCA ISO/IEC 27001:2013 or IRCA ISO 14001:2015 Auditor Transition courses, you may opt out of the morning session on day 1 which covers the high level structure.
