ISO 22000:2018 Auditor Conversion Course (CQI and IRCA 2065)

The purpose of this training course is to provide existing auditors of other management system disciplines, the knowledge and skills required to perform first, second and third-party audits of an FSMS against ISO 22000, in accordance with ISO 19011 and ISO 17021, where applicable.

Students who passed the continuous assessment and the one hour and 40-minute closed book examination will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement. Together with the existing management system lead auditor course certificate, this course satisfies the training requirement for certification as a CQI IRCA registered FSMS Lead Auditor/Auditor.

Students who have not successfully completed a CQI and IRCA certificated (or acceptable alternative) Lead Auditor course in another discipline are unlikely to complete this 24-hour course successfully and will find the 40-hour ISO 22000:2018 Lead Auditor (FSMS) course more appropriate.
