Case Study: Auditor Training Course

Case Study: Scott Sheldon – Freelance Health & Safety Manager

The AuditMentor OHSAS 18001 Training Course for Auditors is the first online course to be accredited by IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health). The course is being used by businesses, councils, graduates and freelancers to develop an understanding of the OHSAS 18001 standard and to learn the requirements of auditing a management system. The benefits of online training enable delegates to study in their own time and place - and gain an accredited certificate.

About Scott

After serving in the British Army for 19 years, Scott Sheldon began to work in the construction industry in Germany. Looking for a change of direction, Scott began to undertake courses in Health & Safety – hoping to combine his experience of industry with new skills and knowledge. Scott completed a Nebosh General Certificate and a Nebosh Fire Certificate, as well as the BS EN 9001 Internal Auditor Course. The next stage in his professional development was to gain qualifications in the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.

Why I chose AuditMentor

“With the health and safety courses under my belt I decided to boost these qualifications with more auditing courses namely in the OHSAS 18001 and the EMS 14001 [standards], however here came the problem; with working a full-time job, and living in Germany, my time to get over to the UK and complete these courses was virtually zero. On looking on the internet I came across AuditMentor which offered courses that could be completed on line - not only that, but when looking at prices for courses in the UK at classroom events AuditMentor came in at very affordable prices.”

How AuditMentor works

Internet training was a new experience for Scott having been used to undertaking face-to-face courses in the past. “I can honestly say that the training material they supply is first class. It’s structured in such an easy-to-follow format that even if you know nothing about auditing, by the end of the course you will be impressed about how much information you will know about the subject.” Scott took advantage of taking two courses with AuditMentor – augmenting his Health & Safety skillset with an additional course in the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard. This gave him an extra CV boost which he believes gave him the edge when securing his new position as Health & Safety Assistant for the European Space Agency based in Darmstadt.
