ISO 37301 Lead Implementer

Course description

Implementing a compliance management system (CMS) based on ISO 37301 offers numerous benefits: it helps organizations avoid or reduce costs, risks, and damage resulting from noncompliance, ensures the organization's long-term sustainability, and fosters trust and confidence. Furthermore, it encourages good governance practices, due diligence, and ethical business conduct.

The IECB ISO 37301 Lead Implementer training course equips you with the requisite knowledge to establish, implement, manage, sustain, and continually enhance a CMS. The training course aims to impart a thorough understanding of ISO 37301's requirements, and acquaints you with the best practices and strategies employed for the system's implementation and ongoing maintenance.

By attending the training course, you'll be able to assist organizations in setting up processes necessary to comply with all obligations and establish controls that proactively prevent noncompliance. This, in turn, contributes to the development of a culture characterized by integrity, transparency, and openness.

After the training, you can take the certification exam. If you succeed, you will obtain the "Certified ISO 37301 Lead Implementer" credential. This certification validates your professional skills and abilities to implement a CMS in an organization, adhering to ISO 37301's requirements.
