The Marsden International Auditor Training Course is made up of 6 Modules, and each module contains between 45 and 60 slides, depending on the content. The slides should be viewed as being holders of multi-media content, and contain media made up of combinations of audio, graphics, text content and video. All the material has been developed by Marsden International and as such, all images and content are copyright.
The course has been developed by John Marsden, using knowledge and first-hand experience of 15 years of EMS and integrated audits with companies such as BP, Shell, Mars and many others. Delivery of over 100 x 5 day Lead Auditor (Advanced EMS Auditor) courses in over 15 countries has helped develop skills in delivering training. A multi-media project carried out in 1998 related to auditor skills called Eco-Odyssey provided additional experience in this sector.
2. Content of the EMS Auditor Course
The multi-media component of the course is comprehensive. In total, the material covers 280 slides and with an average view time of 3.5 minutes per slide (reading and considering the notes associated with each slide, the total view time will be 16 - 17 hours per delegate). The viewer receives information that is designed to be retained in the mind through effective synchronisation of speech, text and visual elements such as graphics, pictures of relevant business activities. The script has been carefully prepared and reviewed a number of times to ensure maximum clarity and relevance to the EMS audit process. The preparation of pictures and graphics has been undertaken at real industrial and commercial sites and video films and clips have been professionally edited. All presentation materials have been delivered and recorded within a sound studio fully equipped specifically to capture voice-overs.
3. Delivery of the Course
The multi-media duration of the course is planned to cover the first two days of the course criteria as set out by IEMA document (April 2004). The third day is planned to be delivered at the site of the company for internal courses, and at a hotel for any public deliveries. Initially, the course will only be made available for in-company use where the practical audit will involve a live audit of the site's EMS. That way, delegates will be able to relate to the practical training and gain more understanding as it relates to their own EMS.
- Day 1 and Day 2 - Web-based Training (16 hours+)
- Day 3 - On-site training and Examination (8 hours)
