Additional Course Information

Our Course vs. Our Competitors Why is our course the best? Just some examples explained of how our course goes further

Working with a Case Study: Almost Full Documented EMS Why is this important?

Each Learner will audit the almost full documented EMS from the unique Kelmac Group® assurance perspective. The Kelmac Group® assurance perspective is unique as we audit like many professional financial audit practices where the focus is on providing top management with the quality of insight to make decisions and actions aimed at improving performance of the organization.

We boast the most comprehensive documented EMS Case Study available including an Integrated EHS (ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001) Manual; 13 SIPOC processes [Value chain, Support and Management]; 19 procedures; the organization’s environmental aspects/impacts register, the organization’s statutory and regulatory and other legal obligations register, the organization’s emergency preparedness and response plan and the organization’s risk register, and related documented environmental templates and records.
In summary, our course unlike our competitors is based almost 100% on the practical application of effectively auditing to the requirement of ISO 14001:2015 rather than knowledge based learning.

Auditor Transition Training That Goes Further Why is this important?

The additional learning topics we cover and the depth to which we cover these topics is why we added 4 hours of additional content. We do not believe the learning objectives can be taught effectively in less time and have stuck by ethics and core principles to ensure we offer a learning event that is effective and our Learners will be able to practically apply the knowledge and skills after the training.
