ISO 9001 Internal QMS Auditor – SQMC Certified

Course Overview

A 2 day Intermediate Course focusing on ISO 9001:2015, provided in partnership with the Scottish Quality Management Centre (SQMC).

In just 14 hours, using SQMC’s unique methodology, participants will learn how to confidently and assertively plan, conduct and report on an internal audit of an ISO 9001-based Quality Management System (QMS).

What You Study

Internal audits should provide more than surveillance of your own business operations – they should provide decision makers with usable data of aspects of the organisation which can be fine-tuned for maximum efficiency; or remedied swiftly in advance of those big certification audits. 

This 2 day Intermediate Course focusing on ISO 9001:2015, provided in partnership with the Scottish Quality Management Centre (SQMC) will help participants do just that, adding extra value to your annual audit schedule.
