This course is designed to provide the knowledge and expertise needed to plan and conduct combined audits when the usual lead auditor is unable to visit the vessel.

Within the framework of regulations and accepted auditing principles and guidelines, this course will present methodologies for conducting effective audits with alternative means.

Remote auditing principles and methods for implementing formal and informal auditing procedures will be reviewed and applied.
