1 Day Internal Auditor Training Course for ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System)
Understanding the Internal Auditor Training Course
Internal auditor training is a vital programme aimed at equipping individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct effective internal audits. A standard comprehensive internal auditor training course will cover a range of topics, including internal auditing principles, techniques, best practices, and compliance with relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. The course can also be customised to specific ISO standards, such as ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 19011 auditing management, among others.
Benefits of Internal Auditor Training
Completing the Internal Auditor Training course offers numerous advantages for individuals and organisations beyond the mere achievement and maintenance of ISO certification. By undertaking this training, you will gain the expertise to implement risk management policies and procedures, resulting in improved organisational standards. Understanding the intricacies of auditing processes, certified individuals will also be able to develop comprehensive checklists for conducting audits, enabling efficient and systematic evaluations. Furthermore, one will learn how to take corrective actions and assign responsibilities appropriately, saving time and overall spend of an organisation.
Attaining a key understanding of management systems and their processes, individuals will be able to contribute to the development and maintenance of service efficiency, adherence to assured standards, and the establishment of customer confidence. Additionally, this training will enhance one’s communication skills, equipping them with the ability to communicate effectively during audits, facilitating smooth interactions and productive outcomes.
Legal Requirement for the Course
While ISO 9001 is not a legal requirement to operate a business, any organisation can apply for ISO 9001 certification in Singapore. To achieve certification, organisations must have a Quality Management System (QMS) that meets all standard requirements, including documented procedures, performance monitoring, and continual improvement. Certification must also be renewed every three years to ensure ongoing compliance with ISO 9001 standards.
Education Prerequisites to Enrol
Having prior knowledge and understanding of the QMS - ISO 9001:2015 will be an added advantage prior to attending this training course. However, thorough comprehension is not mandatory as a general understanding of ISO 9001:2015 and the key principles of a QMS will suffice before enrolling in the course and expanding your knowledge.
