ISO 14001 Training

Updated: May 31, 2023.

ISO 14001 training comes in several varieties. Some training is there to help support the creation and maintenance of an Environmental Management System (EMS) for a company, while other training is for individuals who will be certified for auditing the EMS of companies for certification bodies. Here is a listing of some of the most popular ISO 14001 training courses.

  • ISO 14001 Lead Auditor Course
  • ISO 14001 Lead Implementer Course
  • ISO 14001 Internal Auditor Course
  • ISO 14001 Foundations Course

Lead Auditor online training with video lectures and workshops

The ISO 14001 Lead Auditor Course is an online, mostly self-paced training course consisting of 30 hours, with a focus on understanding and using the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.

The course is divided into three parts: a video library, an interactive workshop, and a certification exam. The video library includes lessons and practical information about the standard and how to prepare for the audit, lead the audit team, perform the audit, and prepare the final audit report. An interactive workshop helps you practice the concepts necessary for auditing the standard, guided by a top expert, while the successful completion of the exam provides you with a certificate and a badge for your LinkedIn profile to highlight your qualifications.

A certified lead auditor can be hired by a certification body – a company that can grant ISO 14001 certification to companies and is hired by an organization to audit their Environmental Management System against the ISO 14001 standard. This course is often used by implementers of ISO 14001 not just to learn more about the standard, but also to find out the criteria that will be used by the certification bodies.

When choosing which Lead Auditor course you should attend, always search for a course that is accredited by a third party in order to ensure its quality, and always check the experience of the experts who have prepared and will present the training.
