Learn to plan, prepare for, conduct, and report on internal audits of a Quality Management System.

We've simplified the subject of auditing your organisation's Quality Management System, to help you learn (faster) how to conduct them (excellently).

The beauty of our approach is we use trainers that audit a broad spectrum of sectors when they're not in the classroom, meaning you can fully relate personally to the examples we illustrate. This brings the theory to life and is one of many reasons SQMC-trained auditors stand out from the crowd.

The SQMC Method

Forget about "ticking boxes" -- this misconception people have about auditors stems from ancient bad practice and bad attitudes! We promote the art of good, progressive auditing. With our higher 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.

What will I learn?
Participants in this interactive ISO 9001 Internal Auditor course will experience practical audit scenarios based on dynamic case studies. We help you try out auditing protocols 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:

  1. The principles, methodology, preparation, and performance of the quality audit (to universal best practice set by the ISO 19,011 Guidelines - which we'll supply you with, free of charge).
  2. 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).
  3. How to prepare the findings and statements for a Corrective Action Report.
  4. Master the art of straightforward Audit Reporting.
  5. A look at Corrective & Preventive Action, the follow-up process, and then surveillance.
How will I benefit? How will my employer reap the rewards?

In short, you'll return to work in 'solution mode'.

At SQMC, our qualified trainers are all experienced, practicing auditors; and when not auditing or training, they are implementing and maintaining Quality Management Systems for clients. The upshot of this down-to-earth practicality, when combined with their keenly-honed aptitude to educate through accelerated learning techniques, is that you'll grasp the subject far better – becoming an (even greater) 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. What's more, we believe that learning and having fun should not be mutually exclusive!
