ISO 9001 Internal Auditor Training Course

  • Course Duration: 2 days


ISO 9001 requires organisations to audit their Quality Management System (QMS) and to use audit as a means of generating continual improvement. Internal audit should be more than a super-checking activity. If done well, it should provide a handsome return on investment. Managers should value audit findings.

The 2 day ISO 9001 Internal Auditor Course gives guidance on establishing a successful internal audit programme and shows how to carry out every stage of an audit effectively.

Who should attend

  • Newly appointed Quality Management System Managers who seek key skills for this important role.
  • Employees who will be carrying internal 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, audit suppliers or be required to perform safety or environmental audits.


  • Participants will be able to perform internal audits effectively and confidently.
  • Sponsor organisations will be able to establish an audit programme which will help to minimise risk and reduce avoidable costs.
  • Successful completion of the course will satisfy a key training requirement for becoming an IRCA-certified Internal QMS Auditor.
