Master audit techniques and become competent to manage an audit program, audit team, communicate with customers, and resolve conflicts
As the world is moving faster than ever, technological developments have rapidly evolved and are redefining, among others, the way we live, learn, and teach. This expansive nature of the internet and technology demand new ways of adapting to this new virtual environment for all of us. As such, the use of new and more efficient instruments for delivering knowledge is continuing to grow across a
broad range of industries. This way, eLearning has become the tool of choice for learning and teaching worldwide.
That is why we have developed the
ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor Program in the eLearning format; for you to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to perform Information Security Management System (ISMS) audits by applying widely recognized audit principles, procedures, and techniques, from the comfort of your home.
Our eLearning Programs have been catered to meet each individual’s needs and have been designed with the aim of transcending spatial and
temporal restrictions. Each eLearning Program is delivered by several experienced facilitators from all around the world, and is divided into several video
sections and subsections. Videos contain animations to support what the facilitator is lecturing — the animations correspond to the sections provided in Microsoft PowerPoint in the traditional mode of training. To
keep our candidates engaged, we have incorporated quizzes into our eLearning Programs.
Here are the facilitators that deliver the ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor eLearning Program:
