ISO Foundation
Course overview
ISO Standards are often seen as daunting for people with no prior experience of them. This 'starter' course will help you understand what ISOs are about and the concepts on which they are based.

CfA's Foundation Course is ideal if you are interested in ISO 9001, ISO 14001, or ISO 45001 certification for your organisation.  It is designed to help you understand the fundamentals of Management System Standards and to give you a clear overview of the various aspects of ISO certification.

At the end of the course, you should be able to say, 'I understand what the Standard is about and what it sets out to achieve'.
