ISO 22000:2018 Auditor Transition Course (CQI and IRCA 2013 + 17855)

The purpose of this training course is to provide additional knowledge, skills and formal qualification to ISO 22000:2005 auditing professionals so they can transition to the ISO 22000:2018 standard.

This training course is structured on a modular basis:

Module 1 – covering changes that arise as a result of the adoption of Annex SL

Module 2 – covering changes that arise as a result of amendments to the standard-specific content of ISO 22000:2018

The advantage of this modular approach is that students will not be required to re-take Module 1 (the Annex SL content) once this has been successfully completed. Instead, they need only complete the relevant standard-specific module (Module 2 of that particular Transition Course).

Capitalizing on the powerful Accelerated Learning Technique, this course spends a good portion of time on discussions, exercises and case studies to help students to consolidate knowledge and skills in auditing to the requirements of the new standard.

Students who passed the continuous assessment and the 20-minute open-book test (per module) will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement. Based on CQI IRCA policy, all CQI IRCA Certificated FSMS Auditors must successfully complete a CQI IRCA Certified FSMS Auditor Transition Training course by Jun 2021, in order to retain their CQI IRCA FSMS registration.
