ISO 9001: Lead Auditor TRaining Course

In a nut shell our 5 day lead auditor training course covers everything you need to know about external auditing. It is our intention to provide Lead Auditor training which is second to none. We aim to add value and benefit to each student whether it be with their current employment, future employment or to gain an additional qualification or recognition as a qualified Lead Auditor.

We believe learning shouldn’t be stagnant so we include a varied curriculum including various role plays, group situations alongside practical sessions and open forum discussions. Through our course no particular industry emphasis is given nor is it meant to be. The principles of auditing are applicable to both manufacturing and service industries.
