We help you try out auditing protocol and techniques in a safe and comfortable environment. Your SQMC trainer encourages your questions – no matter how basic you may think they are – as part of a series of lively and inclusive discussions. In only two days you can learn, understand and appreciate all of the following:

  • The principles, methodology, preparation and performance of the Quality audit (to universal best practice set by the ISO 19,011 Guidelines)
  • The key to selecting the audit sample, and deciding the best questions to ask (with tips as to the most effective phrasing of your questions)
  • How to prepare the findings and statements for a Corrective Action Report
  • Master the art of straightforward Audit Reporting
  • A look at Corrective & Preventive Action, the follow-up process, and then surveillance

We'll send you back to work in 'solution mode'.

At SQMC, our qualified trainers are all experienced, practising auditors; and when not auditing and training, they are implementing and maintaining Quality Management Systems for other clients. The upshot of this down-to-earth practicality, when combined with their keenly-honed aptitude to educate through accelerated learning techniques, will send you back to work as confident and positive auditors – a great asset to any employer. You'll make a difference by working in 'solution mode', using your new skills to identify any risks within your organisation's processes.

Your ISO 9001 Internal Auditor training will be expertly layered and matched to your own learning styles, preferences and pace. We want to ensure you get the most out of your time with us, and we believe that learning and having fun should not be mutually exclusive!

We develop 'modern' auditors, and we're passionate about it.

Forget about "ticking boxes" -- this is a misconception many have about (the art of good, progressive) auditing. Using your new SQMC level of internal auditing skills, you can contribute added value to your organisation by being able to map key processes, understanding how they connect to each other, and revealing a kaleidoscope of useful information for management to review for continual improvement purposes.

Additionally, many of our students' career paths involve aspects of environmental management and/or health and safety process auditing; and your trainer will be happy to provide personal advice on your best routes to achieving either.

Recommended preparation for this course.

Our unsurpassed pass rates confirm that you should pass this course with SQMC at the first time of asking, regardless of your experience level.  However, we recommend a pre-cursory day's training on the clauses and requirements of the Standard. Students who choose to skip this step soon discover it to be a false economy; and we've never had a student regret first gaining that extra understanding!

  • The "Plan - Do - Check - Act" (PDCA) cycle
  • The concepts of Quality Management
  • The terms and definitions associated with Quality Management
  • The seven Management Principles
  • The requirements of the ISO 9001 Standard
