IRCA Registered Lead Auditor Training

This five-day course is designed to provide practical training to personnel responsible for quality audits including supplier audits. It focuses on the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard for quality management systems. It is recognized and approved by international authorities, registered by the International Register for Certified Auditors (IRCA) and meets the training requirements for individuals seeking registration as an assessor/lead assessor within the international scheme, including the RAB QSA International (formerly: Registrar Accreditation Board - RAB).

Assessments of the quality systems of suppliers and of internal quality management systems play a vital role in maintaining consistent standards of quality. This course provides assessors with skills enabling them to gather and use information to assess the effectiveness of an audited system.

This course offers instruction, discussion, company case studies and presentations. It is designed to facilitate understanding and participation in all activities covered and to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills in assessment techniques, including communication skills, to carry out quality management system audits.
