What is Virtual Classroom Training?

This means that for the “classroom” portion of the training, we can offer virtual training as an option for those that prefer to complete their training via a virtual classroom with a Live Instructor.

Virtual training is an alternative format to complete your training – but it will remain highly interactive & collaborative – the same as it would in a traditional classroom environment.

The virtual classroom format will involve shorter “live” sessions with an Instructor on the training days – including regular breaks & interactive assignments (individual & team-based work) for an enjoyable & engaging learning experience.

What about the CQI & IRCA Written Examination?

We are able to offer a new eAssessment option for the lead auditor examinations, which can be completed Remotely. Each Learner must obtain 70% or higher in two CQI & IRCA eAssessments (1 EMS + 1 OHSMS) which are completed securely online (under strict examination conditions).

What do you need to participate?

To participate in the virtual training sessions, you will need:

  • Laptop or desktop computer (Note: A tablet or mobile device is not suitable for this training)
  • Webcam – Built-in or USB plug-in
  • Speakers and a microphone – Built-in or USB plug-in. We strongly recommend a headset if you have this available
  • Internet connection – Minimum of 1.0Mbps

How will Comply Guru help you prepare in advance?

1 week in advance of every  training course, we will be hosting an on-boarding & familiarisation virtual training session with all Participants.

This advance session will recap on the key learning outcomes from the online modules completed & ensure every Participant is comfortable and familiar with the software and tools that we will use during the virtual training.

For any Participant that is experiencing any issues, these can be identified & support will be available both before and during any virtual training course.

In order to successfully complete this blended course, each Learner will need to:

Complete the Self-Paced Modules

      • Prior to the virtual classroom modules, each Learner must complete the online & self-paced course modules and obtain 70% or higher in the final assessment (s) by the required deadline set in advance of the given classroom dates you are registered for

Attend the Virtual Classroom Modules

      • Fully attend the virtual classroom element as 100% attendance is required
      • Obtain 70% or higher in the course continuous assessment during the virtual classroom modules

Pass the Final Examinations via eAssessment – NEW!

      • Completed via Remote Invigilation. Each Learner must obtain 70% or higher in two, separate examinations (via eAssessment). First is a 2-hour CQI & IRCA EMS Lead Auditor eAssessment, followed by a shorter 1hr 40min CQI & IRCA OHSMS Lead Auditor eAssessment. Both are completed securely online (under strict examination conditions). This can be completed from home, work or another suitable location that meets the examination conditions.
Successful completion will entitle each Learner to receive a Certificate of Achievement for both EMS (based on ISO 14001:2015) & OHSMS (based on ISO 45001:2018) Lead Auditing.
