Internal auditing of food safety management systems (based on ISO19011:2011) Online Course
This online course covers the requirements of food safety and quality management systems as well as the principles of internal and supplier auditing – just what you need to conduct audits that add value to your organisation.
An effective internal audit system is a fundamental requirement of any management system. This workshop covers the requirements of food safety and quality management systems as well as the principles of internal and supplier auditing – just what you need to conduct audits that add value to your organisation.
Practical examples and activities develop confidence and a positive attitude when performing internal audits. During an on-site presentation of this workshop, a practical on-site audit is included, which is supervised by a qualified auditor to ensure that the practical aspects of internal auditing are understood. A feedback session is facilitated after the practical audit to ensure buy-in from top management.
