If you are new in the world of ISO standards and not sure what is the right qualification for career advancement, you have come to the right place. An accredited certification is an effective way for demonstrating proficiency, dedication, and commitment to excellence (for more information on PECB’s accreditation visit pecb.com/affiliations). PECB offers Lead Implementer and Lead Auditor training courses for a wide range of international standards.

What is the difference between the Lead Implementer and the Lead Auditor courses?

If you are a practitioner focused on helping organizations implement effective management systems, then the Lead Implementer is the right course for you.

Lead Implementer courses enable participants to develop skills and support organizations in implementing and managing a management system based on ISO Standards.

Our Lead Implementer courses are consistent with the good practices of project management established in ISO 10006 (Quality Management Systems – Guidelines for Quality Management in Projects) and Integrated Implementation Methodology for Management Systems and Standards (IMS2) a methodology developed by PECB.

If your career is focused on auditing practices and you want to become qualified to audit organizations’ management systems against the requirements of ISO Management System Standards and you want to assist the organization in further improvements, then the Lead Auditor course is the right option for you.

Lead Auditor courses enable participants to develop the necessary skills for auditing a management system and manage a team of auditors by applying widely recognized audit principle, procedures, and techniques. Based on practical exercises, the participant will develop the abilities (mastering audit techniques) and skills (managing audit teams and audit program, communicating with customers, conflict resolution, etc.,) necessary to the efficient conduct of an audit.

Our Lead Auditor training courses included Accepted Audit Methodology for Management Systems and Standards (AMS2), a methodology developed by PECB.
