With your upgraded qualifications, you will become an internationally recognized specialist with a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of the latest revision of ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management systems and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management systems.  You will be able to apply what you learn across many areas:

  • Perform audits on behalf of Conformity Assessment Bodies (CAB’s) or Certification Bodies (CB’s) for contract work conducting certification audits (when accompanied by a Lead Auditor competency)
  • Assess an organization's quality and environmental management system against the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 requirements in the role of a system specialist
  • Review and provide feedback on quality and environmental management system audit reports
  • Obtain awareness of the processes that an organization should be taking to develop, implement, maintain and continually improve its quality and environmental management system

If you are unable to provide the prerequisite requirements below that’s not an issue as you can still obtain the qualifications by completing the full courses of Quality Management Systems Specialist and Environmental Management Systems Specialist

The Quality (Exemplar Global – QM) and Environmental Management Systems bridging course (Exemplar Global – EM) are internationally recognized and completed fully online comprising of the following subject units:

Clauses covered:  
Context of the organization Operation
Documented information Performance and evaluation
Improvement Resources
Leadership and planning  

*This course does not include a copy of ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 as they are not required for you to complete your training.  Course content includes extracts from the standards in the form of clause statements as per the example below.

The courses are broken up into a series of modules and the assessment is completed as part of the learning, step-by-step, module-by-module.

Practice Quizzes

For each module, you view the content and then do the practice quizzes as many times as you like.  These are marked instantly by the learning management system so you know exactly which content you may need to review further.  This gets you confident and prepared to do the final module assessment.

Module Assessment

Once you are confident that you have a thorough understanding of the content you can move on to the module assessment.

The module assessment is the same format as the practice quizzes so you know exactly what you need to do.  You are given three attempts at each assessment, after which it is locked for review by a trainer and assessor to see how we can best help you.  The assessment is then unlocked for another three attempts.  This means you are given the support you need to review content, review results, and consult with assessors.  

We have found that students with all types of learning styles find this an effective way to receive their qualification.

To qualify for this course students must have a previous competency against ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 (attained within the last 10 years). They must then provide evidence in the form of one of the following certificates:
