The content presented was excellent, covered very quickly and not enough or any discussion regrading the application of principles. New to move slower, presented information to fast to be retained.

This webinar of Practical Internal Auditor Training is a great introduction to auditing techniques and methods to use for evaluating your own systems. Our company has begun to use this webinar as a base training for our lead internal auditors as well. I found the materials provided and the examples shared to be useful to refer to while conducting audits.

I felt this was an excellent introduction to Internal Auditing. The presenter was very knowledgeable of the subject matter and made the audit process easy to understand. The worked examples and templates have proved very beneficial in real time applications. All topics were covered in great detail so good value for money too. The course length was ideal. I would recommend this course to other subscribers as a good solid foundation into the world of conducting site internal audits,

Good day IFSQN Team. The training was okay and well detailed for a fresher on internal auditing. However, will appreciate a package or training on advanced internal auditing like Internal Audit on ISO 17025. 2005. Thanks.

This training was one of the most useful I have had! Not only did it allow me to narrow my focus and make the most of the audits I complete as a food safety professional, but I am also now able to teach these skills to others and relate to external auditors better because I know exactly what they're looking for.

The course was very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of information that is useful to me as an auditor. It also helped to fill in the gaps on some issues I was having during some of our items. The only thing that lost my focus were the breaks in between.
