ISO 14001 Auditor Certification Training Courses

ISO 14000 is a family of ISO standards that applies to environmental management systems. ISO 14001 consists of two general standards. ISO 14001 lists the requirements necessary for an EMS system to be ISO-compliant, while 14004 provides general guidelines for EMS quality. Other ISO 14001 standards are more industry-specific in nature.

The training also cover the upcoming changes to the quality standard which is very important to get an early insight as it will be soon rolled out and each company will need deputies or 'champions' to help with its implementation.

    Ross Kilduff | 18th July 2017

    Eddie Moody | 22nd June 2017
  • "Excellent two day course. The tutor is knowledgeable and has a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. One tip would be to bring a copy of your quality manual to the course and compare it to the ISO document as the tutor runs through it as I have recorded many actions that need to be implemented from now on in our lab. Bring lots of paper and write lots and lots of notes!. What he tutor is saying is as important as the material in the folder and the presentation. There is a large volume of knowledge being put out there in the two days you will need your notes to reflect and get the most out the session. "

    Oliver Burke | 22nd June 2017

  • "Course covers a lot of material but learner is guided as to what material is necessary for use and most relevant to course."

    Aoife Clavin | 22nd June 2017
  • "The course is well organised and presented. However, the length of the course should be extended, as two days only are not enough to fully understand all the different sections covered."

  • "This course was enjoyable and it was presented in a professional manner, despite the surroundings. The course instructors were excellent and engaged fully with the class. An extra day to allow for more practical exercises would be of benefit."

    Fionan Lynch | 4th May 2016

    Lalita Olsson | 16th February 2016
  • "The trainers (Mr Kelly) ability to challenge the students and push then out of their comfort zone is, in my opinion, the reason why this training is so effective. His knowledge in auditing is clearly not only very broad but incredibly deep. Fantastic course which is hard work but with the right amount of effort is very enjoyable."

    Jason Aldridge | 16th February 2016

    Daniel Flanagan | 14th February 2016
  • "The course is intense given that two topics are covered in 7 days instead of the usual 10 days. However, it was greatly helped by the 'real world' feel of the training; through use of real-world examples, practical templates, the experiences of the trainer, and a host of group activities. It was far removed from similar Lead Auditor courses I've been on, and if you're prepared to put in the effort, I would highly recommend it. "

    Gerard Heatley | 12nd February 2016
  • "The course instructor's shared experinces, knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the subjects being delivered meant that the course was highly effective and promoted involvement and interaction by myself and other attendees. "

    Dai Andrews | 1st October 2015
  • "Fantastic"

    Tom Hughes | 1st October 2015
  • "I will recommend this course to anyone interested in ISO and associated training. Thank you for the time that you have spent helping me and a special thanks to Brian who de-mystified the world of auditing 14001 and 18001. Ian"

    Ian Simpson | 1st October 2015

  • "Course instructor was very knowledgable and presented the material in a manner that was easy to understand."

    Michael O' Brien | 29th May 2015
  • "Really enjoyed the course and found the content was made very easy to understand. When I initially heard it was a seven day course I was apprehensive but the structure of the course meant there was a lot of group participation which helped the class mingle while also provided the added benefit of listening to the experience of others in various industries. I feel as though now I'm significantly equipped to lead an audit and have developed a real insight into the workings of ISO 14001 & ISO 18001."

    Billy Browne | 29th May 2015
  • "The combined course has been very educational, and the instructor was very professional and I learned a lot from his experience. I feel very prepared now and have increased my knowledge of the requirements of the standards. As there are a lot of fundamental similarities between the EMS and OHS standards it's quite good to do them at the same time. "

    Leila Arndt | 28th May 2015
  • "Very good training course and met all my expectations."

    Sarah Pearcey | 10th May 2015
  • "thoroughly enjoyed the course and consider it a very worthwhile and positive learning experience and am looking forward to using the knowledge skills and techniques learned in my work environment."

    Tom Kennedy | 8th May 2015

    Robert Monaghan | 20th August 2014

    Andy Shannon | 18th July 2014
  • "The course content was thorough and well delivered. The instructors were very friendly and helpfull. I would recommend it as a very good course particularly for those who are new to the area of ISO 17025 and to auditing."

    Helen Cantwell | 17th July 2014
  • "What I liked best: the ability to work in team and reinforce the learnings throughout the class. Second, the pre-course work sets the stage for the training; allowing the students to establish a basic knowledge of the standards prior to attending the class. The instructor’s passion and desire is evident by ensuring the students fully understand the course material; approaches the material at different perspectives showing applicability in the work place making it more meaningful. As always it is a pleasure working with KelMac and look forward to future endeavors. "

    Charlene DeLap | 30th June 2014
  • "Our trainer Gerard was great.His knowledge and experience added to special training skills developed over the years did make the course abordable and comprehensive .The convenience of the hotel and the training venue as well as the logistics promoted after hours group study. So this can explain why we came out with 100% pass from this session.I look forward to more courses with KELMAC"

    William Fomban | 28th June 2014

    Muhammad Irfan | 1st June 2014
  • "The Training experience was Excellent & all credit goes to the trainer who is so thorough with the System, Standards & requirements & definitely it was a fruitful, knowledgeable journey of 7 days. The Objective of the training is served to its best & justified. Many Thanks To Sriram Natarajan & Kelmac Group."

    Prasad B. Shetty | 17th April 2014
  • "IRCA certified Combined ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 Lead Auditor Training course which provided by the TUV (Abu Dhabi) was really very helpful to gain my knowledge and improve my auditing skill. I am quite satisfied with the provided arrangement and technical skill of our trainer Mr. Sri Ram and I would like to recommended to my colleague select TUV ( Abu Dhabi) for similar training."

    Imtiyaz Akhtar | 16th April 2014
  • "The course is excellent, but not for novices."

    Greg Linenfelser | 14th March 2014
  • "Overall a good course and with the overlaps in the auditing processes for 14 & 18 an efficent way to complete both requirements with one course."

    Gregory Gerhartz | 13rd March 2014
  • "In the area of rating the instructor - rating of Excellent is an understatement because the instructor was absolutely just outstanding. The knowledge, the experience, the clarity, the delivery of the key points and the explanation of the same were just superb. I have a lot of experience and have taken many training classes and seminars but this was by far the best. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to pursue the training in Kelmac Group to go to the class tutored by Dr. Gerard Kelly. Kelmac Group offers a variety of training and I do plan to consider more training from them."

    Ashok Shah | 13rd March 2014
  • "Potential students should be aware of the style of this training which is heavy on interaction and small group activities. I enjoyed this class partially because we had a good cross section of professionals. Some of the more experienced in the field would challenge the instruction and this led to interesting discussions. As someone who had no audit experience I found this to be really valuable. The pre-course exam is multiple choice but this is not refelective of what the actual exam looks like and how it is formatted (which is not typical for US students). This is not six days of powerpoints/notes."

    Bill Murray | 12nd March 2014

The Benefits of ISO 14001

  • The ISO 14001 family of standards offers a number of important benefits for companies whose business operations impact the environment, either directly or indirectly, or who simply are concerned about maintaining an environmentally conscious image in the eyes of their customers or the general public.
  • When developed and implemented effectively, the ISO 14001 family can even enhance an organization's bottom line through increased efficiency of operations and by attracting environmentally conscious customers by taking a more eco-friendly business approach.
  • In its role as the foundation of the ISO 14001 family of standards, ISO 14001 provides the framework for effective EMS processes. Regardless of the industry, formulating and adhering to ISO 14001-compliant processes ensures management is able to maintain control of all company activities that may have an impact on the environment, allowing it to identify and modify or eliminate potentially environmentally harmful processes before they cause damage or injury. ISO 14001 adherence also reassures stakeholders the company is doing all it can to protect the environment.
  • In a time when stringent regulations are being developed and implemented to protect the environment on a seemingly daily basis, ISO 14001 compliance provides protection against the unintentional violation of these regulations, which can come with severe financial penalties. It also prevents the resulting public relations "black eye" that often occurs when violations are made public.
