What is an ISO certification course?

Building a robust quality management system is not an easy task. Therefore, if you wish to gain more knowledge and proficiency in ISO standards, it would be ideal to undergo ISO training courses on the various quality management systems available.

Through an ISO training course, you can be equipped with knowledge of the various terminologies and requirements for your standard of interest. These courses could also increase your proficiency to the point where you can perform a proper internal audit before third party certification.

It is important to note that there are many different ISO standards for various industries. Thus, you have to know your specific organisational requirements and sign up for courses accordingly.

Stendard's ISO courses in Singapore

Currently, Stendard has multiple ISO courses on various ISO standards. You can check out the available courses by scrolling up to the “Available Online Course” section above.

We will break down the entire course into two separate courses for each listed standard, namely the Requirements and Internal Auditor course. We will mainly elaborate on the various clauses, terminologies, and requirements needed to be fulfilled for a specific standard for the requirements courses.

As for the Internal Auditor courses, we will be going through in-depth guides on how you can prepare your organisation for a third-party audit. You will also be taught the skills required as an internal auditor to perform a first-party internal audit and prepare your organisation for future audits.

We are constantly reviewing and updating our available courses. If you have any courses you would like us to provide, please contact us!

Frequently Asked Questions

The purpose of ISO certifications is to provide guidelines that enable you to build robust quality management systems. By doing so, you will be able to ensure organisational performance, thus safeguarding the interests of various stakeholders.

An internal auditor is part of an organisation reporting to senior management on a particular aspect of the business through internal audits. The lead auditor is a role external to an organisation, employed by third-party certification bodies to conduct a third-party audit to verify whether an organisation complies with a specific standard or not.

It also provides you with a scalable framework to constantly monitor, review and improve your ISMS, ensuring that you will always be able to deter information security threats regardless the size and complexity of your organisation.

You must first ensure that you have prior knowledge in terms of technical experience, subject expertise, supervisory and managerial experience to conduct a proper audit.

Next, you must undergo an auditor training course conducted by accredited bodies. Usually, a lead auditor training course will last anywhere from roughly five days for conventional courses to 30 hours for online courses. During auditor training courses, the topics listed below will be taught in-depth and clarity:

  • Purpose and benefits of a quality management system
  • Terminology that is used in specific standards (may vary with standards)
  • Seven quality management principles
  • High-Level Structure with Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle
  • Explanation on Clauses 1 to 10 with realistic examples.
  • Communicating the benefits of third-party certifications of QMS for organisations and relevant stakeholders.
  • Gaining knowledge on the development and application of specific standards
  • Explanation on the roles of an auditor in assessing an organisation’s ability to meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to the product and the organisations own requirements
  • Realistic case studies and exercises

Upon completing an auditor course, the next step would be to approach a Certification Body (CB) requesting auditing work. For a new auditor with limited experience, you will most likely be assigned as a technical expert or observer within an audit team to learn. As your auditing skills improve, the certification body you work for will most likely assign you as a team auditor. Through multiple audits and continuous assessment as a team auditor, the certification body will assess your competency and promote you to a lead auditor if appropriate.

ISO stands for The International Organization for Standardization (ISO). They are an internationally recognised body made up of national standards bodies. Their responsibilities include publishing a wide range of proprietary, industrial, and commercial standards for organisations worldwide.

Usually, the whole certification process will take roughly 5-6 months. However, with our very own Stendard Document Generator, the process could be reduced to around three months. To know more about our proprietary software, feel free to contact us!
