The ISO 9000 series of standards require that an organisation conduct internal quality audits to determine the effectiveness of its quality system. SQT Training is running a two-day course 11th September 2019 to provide delegates with the skills necessary to be an effective internal auditor (QMS).

Internal Auditor (QMS) Training

Auditors carrying out these internal audits need to understand the purpose of ISO 9001 and the process approach to auditing to enable them to add-value during the audit process. Thousands of internal audits are performed each year providing little internal business benefit. This course focuses on auditing Quality Systems for real quality improvement and performance rather than just conformance.

What’s covered?

  • Introduction to Quality Systems
  • PDCA and Process-based QMS
  • Risk-based thinking & the Process Approach
  • The QMS Audit Process
  • Competencies and responsibilities of internal auditors
  • Audit Preparation – pre-audit activities
  • Audit checklists
  • Conducting the audit – gathering evidence
  • Interview techniques/questioning skills
  • Reporting the audit and follow-up
  • Corrective action

If you have access to a copy of ISO 9001, please bring a copy of the standard with you. If you don’t have access, a copy will be provided for you and will be collected at the end of the course.

Who should attend?

  • Any person with responsibility for conducting internal QMS audits
  • Departmental managers and supervisory staff
  • Quality Managers, quality engineers and supervisory staff
  • Staff with responsibility for designing and implementing quality systems
  • Personnel responsible for supplier / external audits
