ISO 14001:2015 Internal Auditor Training Course

  • Course Duration: 2 days


ISO 14001:2015 requires organisations to audit their Environmental Management System (EMS) and to use audit to continually improve it. Internal audit should be more than a super-checking activity. It should identify areas of significant environmental risk and focus attention on eliminating them. This 2-day course gives guidance on establishing a successful internal EMS audit programme and provides skills to carry out every stage of the audit process effectively.

Who should attend

  • Newly appointed EMS Managers who seek key audit skills for this important role.
  • Employees who will be carrying internal EMS audits.  No previous audit experience is required.
  • Non-auditors who want to understand audit and its benefits.

This should also be seen as a first step in training for those who may, in the future, carry out environmental audits of suppliers and contractors.

If participants require detailed understanding of ISO 14001:2015 requirements, they are recommended to complete our ISO 14001:2015 Foundation Training Course.


  • Participants will be able to perform internal EMS audits effectively and confidently.
  • Sponsor organisations will be able to establish an audit programme which will help to eliminate or minimise environmental risks.
