About the course...

Leading organisations are becoming increasingly aware that combining their OHS, quality, and environmental management systems into a single, integrated management system gives them a clear competitive advantage.

Our Integrated Management Systems Lead Auditor course provides you with the knowledge to build, implement, and maintain a management system that not only meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems, and AS/NZS 4801 – OHSAS 18001: Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, but also works for the benefit of the organisation, ensuring streamlined processes and reduced duplication.

This is our feature course and is for those who require full knowledge of how to conduct an audit across the three main disciplines of quality, environment and OHS management systems. This is the most effective and efficient method to understand the requirements of an integrated management system.

Ideally suited to those who have to develop, implement, maintain, improve, manage or audit against multiple disciplines, our Integrated Management Systems Lead Auditor course will leave you ready to hit the ground running.
