Course Objectives

  • Help you develop the knowledge and skills required to become a Lead Auditor.
  • Improve your understanding of the International Standard.
  • Conform to the auditing practices outlined in ISO 19011.
  • Fulfill the education requirements of the Exemplar Global Certified Internal Auditor program for ISO 14001 and 45001.


This course prepares you to perform effective Environmental (14001) and Occupational Health & Safety (45001) Management System audits.  You’ll learn how to interpret the verbiage of both Standards and apply it to your own organization.  We’ll take you through the full audit process, including: audit planning and preparation, opening meetings, document review, interviewing auditees, and reporting.  Training includes easy-to-use tools to simplify the auditing process.


The course provides a Fast Track to getting Internal Auditor training for BOTH 14001 and 45001 in 4 days!

The first 3 days offer a complete Internal Auditor training course for ISO 14001.  It is divided into 2 competency units:

EM Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001)
AU Auditing Management Systems (ISO 19011)


Day 4 adds this additional competency unit:

OH Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (ISO 45001)


*The AU competency unit offered during the 14001 course is generic for all Exemplar Global-recognized Internal Auditor courses.  Once they have been completed for one Internal Auditor course, they do not have to be repeated for additional courses.  So, by adding the OH competency unit to this training package, it allows you to get jointly certified to BOTH standards.
