Internal Auditor (In-class or ONLINE) - 2 Day
New Standard Overview - 1 Day
Manager's Overview - 1 Day
What is ISO 14001?
The ISO 14001 environmental management standard has existed for many years since 1996 when the first standard was published. It is a mandated requirement in the automotive sector if you are a Tier I supplier and has become a significant barrier for new suppliers interested in working with Tier I suppliers or attempting to become one themselves. The 2015 standard is the latest revision from the International Organization of Standards. Within it are multiple new requirements focused on such things as improved risk management, proactive improvement principles, greater leadership responsibilities, process approaches to auditing, and a significant focus on life-cycle assessments for products being made in the 21st Century global economy.
ISO 14001:2015 Internal Auditor (In-class or ONLINE)
An interactive workshop designed for individuals assigned to conduct process audits for the new ISO14001 Environmental Management standard.
ONLINE: UT CIS will offer the popular ISO 14001:2015 Internal Auditor class in an interactive online format for all classes scheduled in the Nashville CIS Training Room. This allows people to attend the class while avoiding the time and costs of traveling. Online attendees must register for the online class on the UT CIS website in order to receive connection information. Although no special software is required to attend online, those wishing to attend online will need to have access to a computer with a built-in camera or an add-on USB camera so that you can fully interact with the instructor.
Why should I care?
The implementation timeline for those companies already registered to the ISO 14001:2004 standard have a three-year implementation window that started in November, 2015. Typically, registrars conduct a recertification audit for management systems every three years. If your recertification audit comes sooner than November, 2018, you have even less time. You will be required to transition to the new standard at that time.
If you are interested in ISO 14001 integration for your company, one of the requirements is and has always been one or more qualified internal auditors to audit the management system for the purpose of improvement of the system. At the time of registration or new registration, your audit team will be required to conduct process audits for system effectiveness and efficiency and identify opportunities for system improvement – all with a focus of getting better at what you do and how it is accomplished.
This training class is focused on developing that audit capability for your company.

What makes your program different from all the others out there?

This individual is an engineer with over twenty years of management system experience (both environmental and quality) and has trained hundreds if individuals in the manufacturing sector in the current standards and effective auditing principles that will work in real world applications. This class will also be offered to distance learners as well to save on cost of travel expense for those individuals that prefer distance learning as a means of education.
