Internal QMS Auditor Training Course (2 Days)

Focus Standard ISO 9001:2015 with 8 Workshops!

IRCA Certified, Exemplar Global Recognised

We are delighted to be partnering with Ashbrooke Quality Assurance to deliver their IRCA registered courses.

These courses can be presented virtually or in a public or in-company setting when it is safe to do so.


  • This intensive 2-day course is certified by the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) Registration Governing Board and satisfies part of the formal training requirement for certification as an Internal QMS Auditor (IRCA Cert. No. 17918).
  • A certificate of successful completion for passing both the IRCA QMS Foundation course (IRCA/9151) together with the QMS Internal Auditor course (IRCA/9152) will be recognised by RABQSA as equivalent to their QMS Internal Auditor course.

On successful completion, delegates will be competent to audit their own organisation:

  • Be able to prepare, plan, conduct internal audits
  • Be able to report the results whilst identifying opportunities for improvement of the Quality Management Systems

Interactive learning techniques are used to maximise delegate participation, including workshops designed to broaden the knowledge of system and audit application.

Further, the delegate will be made aware of good current practices and be encouraged to develop skills through analysis and self- appraisal.

From an auditor’s perspective, persons who should attend this course include:

  • Personnel who audit within their own organisation.


Why Audit?

It is essential for an organisation to understand its performance against its requirements; and whenever possible, to identify opportunities for improvement. To achieve these objectives, an organisation must set out to conduct internal reviews of itself. These are called internal audits.

Internal audits are required in ISO 9001:2015 through the clause 9.2.

The intent of this process is to ensure the organisation’s knowledge of itself and how it is performing to its requirements. This process is charged to the internal auditor, whether developed from within or hired from outside.

Success in the auditing process is characterised by reliance on a number of principles. These principles make the audit experience an efficient and reliable tool in support of management policies and controls, providing information on which an organisation can act to improve its performance.
