Course Content

SRI has organized this training class to provide information that will assist your organization in developing and implementing an internal audit program as an important tool for your quality management system that meets the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standard. This 2-day class is designed to assist students in gaining a greater understanding of the ISO 9001:2015 standard and using that knowledge to implement an important tool for providing performance evaluation to management that leads to continual improvement. The course is based on guidance from ISO 19011: Guidelines for Auditing Management Systems which is the basis for all ISO system auditing.  The course is designed for individuals who are starting their ISO and internal audit journey as it presents basic information and scenarios as learning tools. The course is fast paced with considerable student interaction required for success. The class is divided into audit teams which are expected to cooperate in learning ISO requirements and audit concepts and then using that knowledge in addressing audit problems presented in increasingly demanding scenarios. The class includes a total of 14 workshop/scenario exercises. The class is updated on a regular basis to reflect the latest guidelines for auditing from the ISO accreditation bodies. The latest version addresses new requirements including auditing for risk and risk management. While designed for beginners to the subject, many former students return to refresh their skills and catch up on the latest auditing approaches.
