Given the vast difference between the outgoing '2008' version of the Standard and the now established 2015 version, trainee auditors are recommended to sign up for the pre-cursory ISO 9001:2015 Foundation workshop, to fully learn the new requirements, clauses and practical applications.
For anyone requiring training to the 2008 issue of the Standard (which is still technically valid until 2018) this can be arranged on request by contacting us.
100% first-time pass rate
100% of SQMC students passed our ISO 9001 'Internal QMS Auditor' training course first-time last year.
In a nutshell, here's what your training will cover...
Delegates participating in this interactive ISO 9001 Internal Auditor training course will experience practical audit scenarios based on dynamic case-studies. We help you try out auditing protocol and techniques in a safe and comfortable environment. Your SQMC trainer encourages your questions – no matter how basic you may think they are – as part of a series of lively and inclusive discussions. In only two days, you can learn, understand and appreciate all of the following:
- The principles, methodology, preparation and performance of the Quality Audit, to ISO 19,011
- The key to selecting the Audit sample, and deciding the best questions to ask – get this right and you'll perform Process Audits with increased confidence
- How to prepare the findings and statements for a Corrective Action Report
- Master the art of straightforward Audit Reporting
- A look at Corrective & Preventive Action, the follow-up process, and then surveillance
We'll send you back to work in 'solution mode'
We believe you should expect more from your training! At SQMC, our qualified trainers are all experienced, practising auditors; and when not auditing and training, they are implementing and maintaining Quality Management Systems for other clients. The upshot of this down-to-earth practicality, when combined with their keenly-honed aptitude to educate through accelerated learning techniques, will send you back to work as confident and positive auditors – a great asset to any employer. You'll make a difference by working in 'solution mode', using your new skills to identify any risks within your organisation's processes.
Your ISO 9001 Internal Auditor training will be expertly layered and matched to your own learning styles, preferences and pace. We want to ensure you get the most out of your time with us, and we believe that learning and having fun should not be mutually exclusive!
Not all auditors are created equal!
Forget about "ticking boxes"! This is a misconception many have about (the art of good, progressive) auditing. Using your new SQMC level of internal auditing skills, you can contribute added value to your organisation by being able to map key processes, understanding how they connect to each other, and this will reveal a kaleidoscope of useful information for management to review for continual improvement.
Additionally, many of our students' career paths involve aspects of environmental management and/or health and safety process auditing; and your trainer will be happy to provide personal advice on your best routes to achieving both.
Recommended preparation for this course
Our unsurpassed pass rates confirm that you should pass this course with SQMC at the first time of asking, regardless of your experience level. However, we recommend a pre-cursory day's training on the clauses and requirements of the Standard. Students who miss it out soon discover it to be a false economy; and we've never had a student regret first gaining that extra understanding!
SQMC's ISO 9001 Awareness / Foundation workshop, not only enlightens on the application of brand new aspects being brought in by the new Standard (such as 'context of the organisation' and risk), but will also unlock knowledge and perspectives of even some of our most experienced Quality professionals who sign up. And you can currently save £100 off your internal auditor course by booking it in combination with the Foundation training! The extra day of training will equip you with knowledge of the following key aspects:
- The "Plan - Do - Check - Act" (PDCA) cycle
- The concepts of Quality Management
- The terms and definitions associated with Quality Management
- The seven Management Principles
- The requirements of the ISO 9001 Standard
- plus many more interesting aspects. Click here to find out more.
Please don't hesitate to call us to discuss your personal level of experience of the subject - we're here to help!
Successful participation of this course and the SQMC continuous assessment exercises will be recognised with a Scottish Quality Management Centre Certificate of Successful Completion.
Attendance on SQMC's course is worth 14 CDP points from the Chartered Quality Institute.
