ISO 14001 Lead Auditor Training Exemplar Global TPECS Certified

This course is recognized by Exemplar Global as meeting the Knowledge requirements for Lead Auditor Certification.

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 Lead 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, closing meetings and reporting.  Training includes easy-to-use tools to simplify the auditing process.


The course provides a Fast Track to getting Lead Auditor training for BOTH 14001 and 45001 in 5 days!


The first 4 days offers a complete Lead Auditor training course for ISO 14001.  It is divided into 3 competency units:

EM Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001)
AU Auditing Management Systems (ISO 19011)
TL Leading Management Systems Audit Teams

Day 5 adds this additional competency unit:

OH Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (ISO 45001)

*The AU and TL competency units offered during the 14001 course are generic for all Exemplar Global-recognized Lead Auditor courses.  Once they have been completed for one Lead 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.
