This training is designed for:
Internal auditors of GMP inspections and system audits

The perfect internal audit training solution for staff who need to carry out GMP inspections and system audits.

If you’re a business who’s certified to an Agents and Brokers certificate, then you don’t need to complete GMP inspections, which means that the super course ‘system audits and for internal auditors’ is more suitable.

Internal auditors should be the most well-trained members of staff within a business, as they need to be able to identify problems before they cause an issue. Doing this will reduce waste, keep complaints low and prevent external non-conformances – keeping your customers happy.

However, internal auditors don’t tend to not be provided with the level of training that they need, so that they can effectively carry out system audits and GMP inspections.

This course is designed to change all that.

It teaches you how to audit your business’ system audits and complete GMP inspections. You’ll learn about GMP so that you know how to ensure that the facility and practical controls are audit ready – all the time.

You’ll also learn how to continue your personal development, so that you can become an awesome auditor and protect your business from complaints, waste and external non-conformances.

  1. Max Gregory – New World Foods (Remote group training session)

    I thought that the course was very well delivered and that I learnt alot. I felt very well involved with the group and particularly enjoyed the group work. Due to coronavirus, I know it was not possible for the trainer to be there in person which would have improved the course but overall I thought the course was well delivered with good material and content. I thought the standard of tutoring, lesson guide, expertise of the tutor and course exercises were all very good. The course presentation and slides were excellent.

  2. Carl Fitch – New World Foods (Remote group training session)

    I thought the standard of tutoring, lesson guide, expertise, presentation and exercises and games were all excellent. The course met my expectations and objectives. I particularly found the section on root cause analysis very helpful. The course content is excellent and diificult to say how it could be improved. Personally I would have liked more time on the report writing section. The course was very good even though it had to be completed online/virtually. The trainer was great and the whole team warmed to her. Great course – thank you.

    The course exercises and games were excellent. The standard of tutoring, lesson guide, expertise of tutor and course presentation slides were also very good. The course did meet my expectations and objectives. I particularly found the practice in GMP inspection helpful and enjoyable. I found the topic of auditing senior management committment overwhelming so I would have liked this to be improved if possible. Overall I enjoyed the time I spent on the course.

    I felt that the trainer was easy to work with and explained everything well. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone. If I had to say what could improve the course, I couldn’t say as it all seemed well done to me. All of the course was helpful and enjoyable and this was new to me so it opened up my eyes to things I wouldn’t have seen before. The course met my expectations and objectives and I thought all aspects of the tutoring, materials, expertise and presentation were all very good.

  6. Simon Worsley – New World Foods (Remote group training session)

    The course met my expectations and objectives. I particularly found the GMP, audits and senior management sections helpful and enjoyable. I would have liked the senior management section to be longer as there wasn’t enough time to take it all in. The tutoring, lesson guide, expertise of the tutor and course presentation slides were all very good and the course exercises and games were excellent.

  7. Jay Brown – New World Foods (Remote group training session)

    All of the course was very helpful and I enjoyed finding all the bad things that were in the factory in the training about GMP inspections, I felt that this was a good example on what to look for. The course was all good but I found auditing the mistakes on the documentation examples was something I needed to improve on. Its a good course and I don’t think anything needs to be improved. I learnt alot of things I didn’t know. The course met my expectations and objectives and I found the standard of tutoring, lesson guide, expertise of the tutor, course presentation slides and course exercises and games to be very good.
