This course focuses on the Internal Audit process and trains Navy civilian and military personnel representing shore installations and regional commands to effectively prepare for and conduct Internal Integrated Environmental Management Systems (EMS) / Compliance audits at Navy shore installations as required by OPNAVINST 5090.1 (series) and in accordance with NAVFAC & CNIC policies and procedures.
The course is designed to guide students, individually and as a part of team, through the process of developing, implementing and executing an Internal Assessment Plan (IAP) at their installations. Emphasis will be placed on utilizing a systematic approach in managing and executing their internal EMS audits. Students will also learn to identify strengths, weaknesses and interactions of environmental management systems and associated media programs; identify underlying causal factors that may contribute to the occurrence of observed compliance deficiencies; evaluate each of the individual components of an EMS; provide feedback on the effectiveness of the overall system and identify opportunities for improvement.
NOTE: THIS COURSE DOES NOT TEACH EMS IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY. IT IS STRICTLY DESIGNED TO TEACH THE INTERNAL INSTALLATION AUDITING PROCESS AND DOES REQUIRE A FUNCTIONAL EMS UNDERSTANDING. THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ANY EMS BACKGROUND.
