Course ID LA142015
Format Classroom

Understand the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 so you can conduct a successful audit. ASQ provides hands-on learning experience to prepare you for real-life auditing situations. You’ll learn to manage the audit process and complete reporting.


Lecture time is held to a minimum, which provides time for you to learn and then practice your newly acquired skills in real-life audit situations. This ensures that you’re prepared to conduct effective audits. The learning environment makes extensive use of student activities and case studies to help you fully understand the requirements of auditing to the ISO 14000 standard.

This Exemplar Global-certified course is presented by AQS Management Systems, Inc. (an Exemplar Global-certified course provider) in association with ASQ. This course is certified in the Exemplar Global Certification Program, and meets the training portion of the requirements for related auditor certification. Due to stringent international standards guidelines, a maximum course enrollment of 20 students will be strictly enforced. If you are told you are on a waiting list or have registered and not received a confirmation letter prior to the course, contact ASQ immediately to verify your status before you make travel arrangements.

You will receive a 'Successful Completion' certificate to demonstrate that you have met the training requirement for individual QMS auditor certification by the Exemplar Global. Before becoming a Lead Auditor, there are also professional requirements that must be met, including conducting a number of verifiable audits, educational requirements, workplace experience and sponsorship.
