This course will provide shipping and offshore company employees with the knowledge and tools necessary for performing and managing internal auditing procedures. Verification principles and methods for implementation of both formal and informal audit procedures will be examined and applied.

Participants will receive a sound understanding of auditing techniques and processes as well as management of an internal auditing program. Participants will also gain an appreciation for the role and importance of intern auditing programs within the maritime industry as related to Safety and Quality Management systems.
