The US Environmental Protection Agency defines environmental auditing as a “systematic, documented, periodic and objective review by a regulated entity of facility operations and practices related to meeting environmental requirements.” There are currently three types of auditing that is practiced throughout the industry: Regulatory compliance audits, property transfer assessments (also called due diligence reviews or Phase I audits) and environmental management system audits under the ISO 14001 standard. This course provides an introduction to each of these three types. This course will not qualify the student as a lead auditor training under the ISO 14001 standard, but will provide most of the information required to take the lead auditor test. This course qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credits.
