This two-day highly interactive and practical course is designed to provide delegates from all levels of an organisation with an overview of the internal audit process. Establishing an auditing skill base and a sound knowledge of all elements involved in auditing an Environmental Management System (EMS), delegates will be able to:

  • Determine compliance and identify areas for improvement against the requirements of ISO 14001 and related standards
  • Competently conduct effective audits and implement corrective action programmes
  • Identify areas for continuing improvement that provide on-going benefits to your company's growth and success.
  • Contribute to the requirements to register as an IEMA Environmental Auditor.

Course Objectives

Our course will equip delegates with knowledge of the requirements and principles of ISO 14001 and Eco-Management and Audit Regulation (EMAR), providing them with the skills to competently perform internal EMS audits.As this 2-day auditor training course does not carry the IEMA approval, Excel is able to provide its customers with a broader choice of options to help them closer align their training needs with their business needs whist considering the impact of time and cost to the business. Without the required examination of an IEMA-approved course, time can be given to broadening depth of knowledge, enabling delegates to take this information back into their organisations where they can then decide on how, and on what basis, they identify the necessary competencies to appoint internal auditors and establish or benchmark their own internal audit system.
