Learning objectives:The aim of this course is to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills required to perform first, second and third-party audits of occupational health and safety man-agement systems against ISO 45001, in accordance with ISO 19011 and ISO/IEC 17021, as applicable. In detail, the training course will provide technical knowledge and prac-tical skills to become a competent Lead Auditor. The training is highly interactive and consists of knowledge-based sessions as well as practical exercises and role-play sessions.
Successful completion of the course (continuous assessments and examination) will result in the issue of a certificate, which may be used to support an application to become registered as an IRCA auditor. In case of fail result of the examination, delegates have the right of a resit examination within 12 months of the last day of the course.
Being certified as an IRCA auditor is a clear statement that you are a recognized, qualified and capable auditing professional.
