Integrated Management Systems Training (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001)

Integrating your management systems can reduce duplication and improve efficiency.

An integrated management system is a single system designed to manage multiple aspects of an organisation’s operations in line with multiple standards, such as those for quality, environmental and health and safety management.

Since the introduction of Annex SL, many standards for management systems follow the same structure and therefore can be easily implemented in an integrated manner to avoid duplication of processes, documentation and auditing. This helps organisations work towards the goal of becoming more effective and efficient.

Our Integrated Management training courses are designed to help you:

  • Avoid duplication of effort

  • Make more effective use of senior management time

  • Use resources to implement and manage systems in a more efficient manner

  • Achieve more cost efficient certification

  • Reduce audit fatigue

Book a place on one of our Integrated training courses where you will be tutored by an industry expert who will help you to improve your skills and understand the quality, environmental and health & safety systems standards, how to integrate them and the benefits of having all three standards functioning together in unison.

NQA is also a proud CQI and IRCA Approved Training Partner, and you can find many CQI and IRCA certified courses within our portfolio.

Why Choose ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & ISO 50001 Integrated Training?

In today's competitive business environment, streamlining operations is essential to keeping overhead costs low. The key principles of lean management include eliminating redundancies and consolidating systems. Implementing an integrated management system provides a globally trusted framework for doing just this. When you integrate your management systems, you reduce duplication and improve efficiency.

Integrated management systems provide greater benefit than running separate management systems in parallel. If you are currently running separate management systems, our training courses can help you streamline your systems and processes.

Our Integrated Management System (IMS) training courses have been designed to give technical and compliance professionals the tools and knowledge to introduce, implement and audit consolidated ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 management systems.

Different Ways to Learn

NQA offer e-Learning, virtual, public and in-house training options to suit all learning styles and needs. You’ll learn about how to introduce and implement an integrated management system and then follow on with how to conduct internal audits to help you identify and reduce risks.

Although much of our training is currently being held virtually, we are in the process of re-introducing some options for face-to-face public courses for those that like to interact in person with others. Keep an eye out for those coming soon.

Integrated Systems Virtual Training

We are continuing to run all our courses virtually so that you can attend from the comfort of your own home or office, anywhere in the country.

The training sessions are designed to give you the knowledge you need to advance and grow and are delivered by industry experts. You’ll have the chance to interact fully with both the host and other delegates over Zoom for a rounded and immersive experience, just like you would in a classroom.

Integrated Systems In-House Training

If you have a slightly larger group we can offer training at your premises, which may prove more cost effective for you. This means that we can also ensure the training is tailor-made to your needs and requirements.

Benefits of In-House training:

  • Cost effective and efficient – team learning reduces cost-per-head and increases return on investment from your training budget.

  • Total flexibility – we deliver in-house training where and when you want in the format you need; from briefing sessions and workshops to examined courses to meet your specific objectives.

  • Relevant and practical – our tutors are management systems practitioners with extensive experience of implementation, auditing and continual improvement. They’ll ensure that concepts and techniques are clearly understood and adopted.

  • Team building – training in teams achieves common learning objectives, improves collaboration and increases the adoption of new techniques in practice.

  • Personalised services – we take the time to fully understand your training needs and match our expert tutors to fit your organisation.
