Lead Auditor Training courses for sustainable palm oil

Proforest has run RSPO endorsed Lead Auditor training courses in Asia since 2008, and will now also be running these courses in Africa and Latin America.

The Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) has set the benchmark for the sustainable production of palm oil with its Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Palm Oil Production. However, an important factor for success is having sufficient trained and experienced auditors in producer countries, able to check actual production practices on the ground against the requirements of the RSPO.

Proforest has been running RSPO endorsed Lead Auditor courses in Southeast Asia since 2008. As of this spring we will also run courses in:

We will run several more Lead Auditor courses in the second half of 2013, including some courses in Southeast Asia, notably in Malaysia (in English) and in Indonesia (in Bahasa).

Though the courses will be geared towards training certified RSPO Lead Auditors, they are also useful for other participants, such as company staff wishing to gain in-depth knowledge of RSPO requirements or government officials, wanting a rigorous introduction to the RSPO standards and systems.
