QMS ISO 9001:2015 Auditor Transition Course


05-Days’ CQI-IRCA Approved ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System Auditor Transition Course

Course Overview

IPS UK offers a Chartered Quality Institute (CQI)-International Register for Certificated Auditor (IRCA) Certified Quality Management System ISO 9001:2015 Auditor Transition Course (17855+17899), in collaboration with HKV Academy (01185621), a CQI-IRCA Certified Training Partner (ATP) with an intent to provide a) additional knowledge, skills and formal qualification to ISO 9001:2008 auditing professionals b) a comprehensive and certified training course to transit to ISO 9001:2015 standard.

This training course is structured on a modular basis:

Module 1 (A17855): Covering changes arising as a result of the adoption Annex SL (One Day)

Module 2 (A17899): Covering changes arising as a result of amendments to the standard-specific content of ISO 9001:2015 (One Day).

The advantage of this modular approach is that students will not be required to re-sit Module 1 (the Annex SL content) once this has been successfully completed. Instead, they need only to complete the relevant standard-specific module (Module of that particular Transition Course).

Capitalising on the powerful Accelerated Learning Technique, this course spends a good portion of time on discussions, exercises and a case study to help students to consolidate knowledge and skills in auditing to the requirements of the new standard.

Students who passed the continuous assessment and the 60 minutes Open Book Test will be awarded a Certificate of Successful Completion. Based on IRCA policy, all IRCA certificated QMS Auditors must successfully complete an IRCA certified QMS Auditor Transition Training course by 1 September 2018, in order to retain their IRCA QMS registration.
