Effective implementation and verification of a (safety) management system requires periodical internal audits. The approach to and scope of an audit differs widely from an inspection.

The requirements for auditing the management system within companies and on board ships have highlighted the subject of competence of internal auditors.

Our course provides you with the knowledge and expertise necessary to plan and conduct combined ISM audits and verifications. Through the use of interactive group exercises you will also improve your communication skills and thus strengthen your overall performance as an auditor.

The first part of the auditing process resembles an inspection activity (verification of compliance and identification of non-conformities). This course will provide shipping and offshore company employees with the knowledge and tools necessary for performing and managing internal auditing procedures. Verification principles and methods for implementation of both formal and informal audit procedures will be examined and applied.

Participants will receive a sound understanding of auditing techniques and processes as well as management of an internal auditing program. They will also gain an appreciation for the role and importance of internal auditing programs within the maritime industry as related to Safety and Quality Management systems and learn about the requirements laid down in the ISO 19001 standard related to the performance of the internal audits and verifications in an integrated management system.

A written exam will test your level of achievement with respect to the learning objectives and be used as a basis to issue a certificate.
