Our Course vs. Our Competitors Why is our course the best?

Assessment of Process Effectiveness Why is this important?

To have a high performing EMS that directly and indirectly impacts business performance requires a EMS that is integrated with the organizations business processes.

Our course focuses on providing Learners with skills to provide real value and underpin Process Owner and other Stakeholder confidence – this leads to better improvements, more insightful audits, better quality information and therefore, better informed decisions.

Wider Coverage of Audit Methods Why is this important?

What sets the Kelmac Group® course apart from both he IRCA course specification and competitor courses is we develop the Learner’s competency using a wide variety of audit methods, namely interview, document review and analysis of process and product data and information and operational records.

By comparison, competitor courses only focus on one audit method, interview and this does not expose the EMS Auditor to the real-life audit situation – the Kelmac Group course does.
