These days, every company needs an Integrated Management System (IMS). Companies usually operate multiple management systems and so need a centralised managing system in order to manage, audit and improve the overall running of the business. Courses on ISO management system standards are in high demand globally. The common ISO management system standards are:

  • ISO 9001 – Quality Management System (QMS) Standard
  • ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System (EMS) Standard
  • ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&SMS) Standard

Professional training bodies usually offer Short Awareness Courses, Two Day Internal Auditor Courses or Five Day Lead Auditors Courses on the three different management system standards. These courses are usually expensive and specific courses on Integrated Management Systems (IMS) are rarely available, even though the need for IMS is felt in the corporate and industrial sectors across the globe. 

Often companies simply integrate their management system standards in order to reduce costs, improve efficiency and avoid repetitive work for different management systems. 

However, employees are usually only trained in one management system and so they don’t have any idea as to how integrated management systems work. This means companies have to facilitate expensive training in each management system for every employee. What companies need is a course in which the concept of IMS is taught alongside common management systems standards. 


At Alison, we’ve designed an exclusive diploma level course to meet this global demand. The course is rich in learning activities, questions, graphics and assessments. It covers the concept of Integrated Management Systems (IMS) in the initial module, along with the different approaches companies use to integrate systems at both basic and advanced levels.

The course also compares common management system standards, including the latest ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards. It discusses these standards in detailed, individual modules and provides assessments on each management system. The last module focuses on ISO 19011 – Guide for Auditing Standard, and also includes an assessment.
