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

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

Each Learner will have access to 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. 

One System Model Why is this important?

The one system model is based on utilizing Business Process Management to enhance ISO based Management Systems.

Our course is unlike our competitors as we will outline a methodology for developing and implementing an Environmental Management System based upon the requirements of ISO 14001:2015, where the EMS is integrated with the organization’s business model. 

Others train followers, we train leaders™
