RSPO Lead Auditor Supply Chain Certification
Please Note: we are currently finalising our 2021 programme and will be sharing details soon of our upcoming training.
Endorsed by the RSPO, this course focuses on application of the RSPO Certification Systems and audit practice requirements to ensure consistent and appropriate audit decision making.
This course includes a preliminary online component which must be completed before participants can attend the five-day face-to-face component of the course.
Our Lead Auditor training course is principally designed for auditors wishing to carry out auditing for the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) producer standard. However, if a course is undersubscribed we can make spaces available for company staff in charge of meeting RSPO requirements, or any other interested stakeholders (e.g. NGOs, government officials) wanting to learn about RSPO standards and systems.
The course includes online modules, lectures, workshops, a practical audit exercise and a written examination. It provides participants with an in-depth knowledge of the RSPO Principles and Criteria and associated RSPO requirements for production level audits (e.g. New Planting Procedure, and Remediation and Compensation Procedure).
The course trainers are themselves qualified Lead Auditors and experts on specific topic areas (e.g. HCV), bringing together their collective experience in the planning and implementation of the RSPO. The training builds on our wide experience in training RSPO Lead Auditors as well as on the wealth of local experience we have working in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
