deGRANDSON offers 2 Integrated Management System (IMS) Diploma Courses

What is an Integrated Management System?

An integrated management system (IMS) combines multiple management system standards to which an organization is certified. Our Courses combine ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (environmental), and ISO 45001 (OH&S) requirements into integrated courses that avoid unnecessary lesson duplication. 

Benefits of an Integrated Management System

Planning and developing an Integrated Management System must include identifying risks and opportunities that could affect the organization, including its business and quality risks. This is in addition to those relating to health and safety and environmental obligations.

Some areas may integrate more easily than others, and as such, systems may end up being fully integrated or partially integrated. Then, having successfully implemented an IMS, the combined system needs to be maintained.

In this regard, the availability of a suitable number of persons who are adequately and effectively trained is a significant issue, and finding conventional auditor training for multiple Standards can be a nightmare.

How Integrated Management Systems Work

The management systems are developed, implemented, and maintained via one system with processes that cover each standard’s requirements -- addressing the difficulties of finding qualified internal auditors to competently confirm the effectiveness of different management systems that require a myriad of requirements.

Integrated Management System Diploma Courses

Because deGRANDSON recognizes this problem, we have developed two Integrated Management System courses as part of our diploma courses selection. They are available online and include ...

IMS Internal Auditor

For auditors who are, or will be, needed to audit combinations of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 management systems.  While avoiding unnecessary duplication of course content, the Course provides all the knowledge necessary to audit against the distinctly different requirements of these Standards.

IMS Lead Auditor

For Consultants and Quality Managers seeking an internationally-recognized QHSE qualification.  With the convenience of online, on-demand, self-paced learning you avoid the costs, delay, and, let's be frank, the bother of attending conventional college-based courses. Why do a couple of hours a week when you can do a couple of hours a night?!!

deGRANDSON Global is an ISO Certified Educational Organization

InISO 21001 ISO 29993 ISO 29994 October 2021 we secured certification to three education-related ISO Standards.  We now have a university-grade management system in place conforming to the requirements of  …

  • ISO 21001, Educational Organizational Management System,
  • ISO 29993, Learning Services outside formal Education,  and
  • ISO 29994, Learning Services – additional requirements for Distance Learning.

We have chosen ISO 21001 certification because, unlike IRCA and Exemplar badges (which in our opinion are commercially compromised), it is based on independent third-party assessment.  It is a ‘university grade’ standard in use globally by schools, colleges, and universities to demonstrate their competence.
