ISO 14001:2015 Lead Auditor Training

ISO 14001:2015 is an environmental management standard (EMS) developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It’s a generic standard that can be used for any organization that provides physical products or services. ISO 14001 is the most widely used EMS because it’s both business and management oriented. However, the requirements must be carefully interpreted to make sense within a particular organization. For example, the environmental impact of developing automotive products is not the same as producing food products or offering consulting services, yet this standard can be applied to any of these activities.

Every member of your workforce who participates in planning, leading, and conducting your company’s EMS audit activities and managing its environmental program will benefit from taking ISO 14001 training. Estimated to take up to 32-hours to complete, this course provides training on the standard itself, but also on how to lead or conduct internal audits and supplier audits using ISO 19011:2011, the guideline standard on how to audit management systems.
