For better environmental management

The environmental management of an organisation is only as good as the system set up to continuously improve the way in which that system works. The lead auditor plays a crucial role in this, which involves checking whether or not the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 have been met correctly.

In short: qualified lead auditors are able to further develop the success of environmental management systems (EMS). Sounds interesting? During this 5-day training course, you will be able to learn the tricks of the trade for yourself.
