ISO 17025 Certified Lead and Internal Auditor Trainings


What is ISO/IEC 17025:2005?

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 specifies the general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling. It covers testing and calibration performed using standard methods, non-standard methods, and laboratory-developed methods.


Who does ISO/IEC 17025:2005 apply to?

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is applicable to all laboratories regardless of the number of personnel or the extent of the scope of testing and/or calibration activities. When a laboratory does not undertake one or more of the activities covered by ISO/IEC 17025:2005, such as sampling and the design/development of new methods, the requirements of those clauses do not apply.


Why is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 useful?

ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is for use by laboratories in developing their management system for quality, administrative and technical operations. Laboratory customers, regulatory authorities and accreditation bodies may also use it in confirming or recognizing the competence of laboratories. ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is not intended to be used as the basis for certification of laboratories.

This course prepares you to perform internal QMS audits using industry-proven techniques and to apply proper interpretation of the ISO standard to real life audit situations. You’ll follow the full audit process including: audit tools and preparation, opening meetings, audit interviews, closing meetings, and reporting.  This is a very practical class that is not “bogged-down” with academic discussions of quality topics that have limited utility for class attendees.

This class teaches Internal Auditing for ISO 9001, 13485, AS9100, TS 16949, and ISO 14001 Quality Management Systems.

This Internal Audit class makes extensive use of activities and case studies to help you fully understand the requirements of quality system auditing to the ISO 9001:2008 standard. Since people “lock” new understanding into long-term memory much better when they apply it, lecture time is held to a minimum providing you time to grasp and then practice your newly acquired skills in simulated real-life audit situations. 

Who Should Attend

Individuals who will perform audits to ISO 9001, 13485, AS9100, TS1649 and/or 14001 Standards or Quality Management Systems, individuals assisting their organizations toward ISO 9000 registration, or individuals who are frequently audited should attend this training. Quality directors, managers, engineers, auditors, ISO coordinators, laboratory quality professionals, and anyone engaged in quality audits will benefit from this training.


There are no required prerequisites.  This course is routinely taught to quality novices and life-time professionals. All attendees are required to bring their own copy of the ISO 9001, 13485, AS9100, TS16949, and/or 14001 Quality Management Standard Requirements to this training course. These will not be provided for you. We strongly advise you bring a “paper” copy.
