Since 2006, AB Training, since 2015 ASTRAcademy, has offered various training programs to certification bodies active in the FSC system. The courses for FSC Auditors offered so far to 28 FSC-accredited certification bodies have been evaluated and approved by Accreditation Services International (ASI) as compliant with FSC requirements for the training auditors to FSC standards. This includes the courses on the ISO 19011 Guideline, and those for Forest Management and Chain of Custody Auditors.
The course has two parts to it – firstly the online part, which covers all the theory related to CoC auditing, and then the classroom training to hone the skills that an auditor requires during audits. The internet part requires 16 to 18 hours of time to complete, while the face- to-face part adds another two days on top of this. This is only available, when a blended course date and venue has been scheduled. You can download a flyer for this course here
