It is essential that personnel involved in the development, implementation and auditing of quality management systems understand standards such as ISO 13485.
It is also necessary to be able to liaise appropriately with outside bodies and to represent your organisation when auditing suppliers. IRCA certified auditors conduct audits in a professional, thorough and fair manner against regulatory or Quality Management Standards.
This intensive 5-day IRCA certified course will evaluate and focus on the requirements of the ISO 13485 in detail and will demonstrate good auditing practice that reflects best in class.
Learn how to effectively perform internal, supplier and third party audits of quality management systems. On completion of the examination and continuous assessment delegates will receive a certificate of achievement that satisfies the formal training requirement for certification as a CQI/IRCA* auditor or lead auditor.
