Course Description (Download the Brochure)
ISO 22301 Lead Auditor teaches the principles and practices of independent auditing of a BCMS and
guides the student through the audit process using a balance of formal instruction and practical case study activities. The focus of the course content is on the requirements of ISO 22301 and how these requirements are implemented in a Business Continuity Management System.

the auditing of BCM Systems to their audit capabilities for conducting internal and/or external audits as well as BCM professionals who wish to add the auditing competence to their skill sets.
