IECB ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System Internal Auditor

Become a certified ISO 37001 Internal Auditor

The IECB Certified ISO 37001 Internal Auditor training course provides the necessary knowledge and skills that enable you to perform anti-bribery management system (ABMS) audits by applying widely recognized audit principles, procedures, and techniques.

Many organizations seek competent auditors to determine whether the policies and anti-bribery controls, implemented as part of an ISO 37001-based ABMS, are effective. This training course aims to help you complete these tasks successfully and intends to reflect the importance of effective ABMS audits. Additionally, it aims to strengthen your knowledge and skills to plan and carry out ABMS audits in compliance with the guidelines for auditing management systems provided in ISO 19011 and the certification process described in ISO/IEC 17021-1.

The exercises, quizzes, and case studies provided are designed to help you practice the most important aspects of an ABMS audit: ISO 37001 requirements, auditing principles, tools and techniques used to obtain evidence, leading a team of auditors, conducting interviews with auditee, reviewing documented information, drafting nonconformity reports, and preparing the final audit report.

The successful completion of the training course is followed by an exam. If you pass the exam, you gain the “Certified ISO 37001 Lead Auditor” credential which validates your professional capabilities and demonstrates your ability to audit an ABMS based on ISO 37001.
