Integrated ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Requirements and Transition Guidance

Course Description

The 2015 editions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are considered major revisions. Many organizations use both these standards and need training on the new and changed requirements. This new 2.5 day course provides that training in an integrated format.

Our “Integrated ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Requirements and Transition Guidance” course explains all the quality and environmental requirements, and identifies the specific changes from the prior editions. Guidance is also provided on transition activities and how to adjust your internal audits for the new requirements.

Rather than arrange for two separate courses, one on ISO 9001:2015 and one on ISO 14001:2015, you can now schedule a single integrated course. The generic Annex SL requirements are presented in blue italics, the unique ISO 9001 requirements are shown in black text, and the additional ISO 14001 requirements are displayed in a green font.

Course Developer

Larry Whittington has trained, consulted, and audited on all four of the prior ISO 9001 editions (1987, 1994, 2000, and 2008) and both of the prior ISO 14001 editions (1996 and 2004). He and the other instructors will help students understand the new and changed requirements, as well as, guide them on how to transition their organizations to the 2015 editions.

NOTE: Students that are Exemplar Global certified auditors will be required to later take an online Transition Assessment to update their certification scope for ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. Each transition assessment costs $99.00 and can be taken at the Exemplar Global College website: www.exemplarglobalcollege.org.
