For delegates attending from industry/manufacturing there is no requirement to take an exam, for those delegates who intend to work as a (Lead) Auditor for a Certification body there is a requirement to take a mandatory exam which is in addition to the continuous assessment pass/fail criteria that forms part of the course. The exam takes place upto three months after the course has finished and is held at our Chipping Campden Site – there will be an additional charge of £190 + vat to cover the cost of the exam, the cost includes a 1 hour refresher session and packed lunch prior to the exam. You will be given the opportunity to sign up for the exam during the course.
Delegate feedback (September and November 2019)
- The course was very useful especially in the practical examples and exercises.
- It has given me more experience and more confidence.
- Better understanding of both the standard and techniques to use when conducting the audit.
- I believe it will make me a better auditor and auditee in terms of awareness of the standard when we are audited again.
