The course is also useful for someone who would like to have a wider understanding of quality management system design and implementation. This will include senior managers, operations managers, quality managers and internal quality auditors who want to enhance their auditing skills.

To attend please see IRCA Pre Course Knowledge requirements. Why not take a look at our Introduction to ISO 9001 Training Course – available for the discounted cost of only £250, this will give you a good one day introduction in preparation for this Lead Audit Course. Note that pre-course knowledge is assumed and may form part of the final, closed book exam.

This course will give you a thorough understanding of how to perform quality audits in your organisation and at your suppliers. The course also gives you the same level of training as your ISO 9001 certification body assessor. This will help you and your organisation to identify gaps in your quality management system as a basis for improvement of customer satisfaction and internal efficiency. The course satisfies part of the training requirements for those who wish to register with CQI and IRCA’s auditor/lead auditor registration scheme.

Learning becomes easier and more effective if you, as a delegate feel involved and participate. We not only lead the training but we also encourage thought and analysis by delegates who subsequently gain greater insight and ability. We know you will then be more effective auditors.
