Why Take a Refresher Course?
Many ISO Management System Standards are now beginning ‘to show their age’. For ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, the relevant ISO Sub-committees have already stated that they have no plans to revise these Standards as per their usual 5 to 8-year cycle. For ISO 13485 the regulatory scene is currently in such a state of flux globally that a revision is not anticipated until 2026 at the earliest.
What then if your knowledge of these Standards is getting rusty?
Our policy has been to not time-limit our Certificates. We consider the 3-year limit to certificate validity to be little more than a money-making racket. We have left it to the cycle of revisions to the Standards to prompt our Certificated Learners to take Conversion Courses; that is, to update only when necessary.
This policy has worked well until now when ISO has failed to revise old Standards. We have Certified Learners who have last trained seven years ago. It’s now well gone the time when retraining is justified and so we introduce the Refresher Courses.

What Are My Choices When It Comes to Refresher Courses?
If you are an Internal Auditor or a Lead Auditor for ISO 9001, you can take one of our refresher courses and receive an updated ISO Auditor Certificate. The same also goes if you are a certified auditor for ISO 14001 or ISO 13485.
What if the Refresher Course I Want is Not Available?
Our offering grows as older Standards are not revised. Check out the menu on the left to see what’s currently available.

What Customers say …
- There were a few minor issues with course content integration with course software, however, Customer Service through the Support Ticket was quick to respond and address issues. The ability to learn and gain qualifications through an online platform such as deGRANDSON’s offer is an extremely flexible option. I would commend this learning option and the use of Safari iOS which works consistently with the learning platform. The Support Team are very efficient and quickly resolves any issues that might be encountered, many thanks.
This is an excellent course. The content in the 3 modules was so beneficial and helped me to grasp details that I had previously struggled with. It was evident that the content was factual and from the real world in its tips for application. The answers and direction provided in the FAQ’s was excellent and very helpful. Any query I had was answered promptly. I honestly don’t know what you could do better. Thank you for all your help and guidance.
Course states 24 hours, I would say it took double that time to complete. Had some technical difficulties but Ultan King in support has been very helpful in resolving all issues.
Have only completed the first part of the course, enjoying it immensely, so far. the content is thorough and clearly explained. I only have one small observation – that it may be better using a real person, or even person(s) to present rather than a computer generated voice which can be a little wearing over time.
Cost / learning is really adapted. You can progress with adapted elearning at your rythm
I’m extremely pleased with my ISO 45001 Lead Auditor course from deGrandson that I started in February 2021. I work for Amazon as a Construction Manager constructing fulfilment centers in the UK, EU and worldwide. The course material is excellent, the online learning system is very easy to use and the course is very well structured. I highly recommend this course by deGrandson. Dr John FitzGerald is an expert in this subject area and it shows. You will be pleased that you also chose to study with deGrandson.
These are very detailed courses and they work very well for us.
On-line study at my own pace is most suitable learning media to me. The course is timely with the latest 2019 edition of the Standard coupled with value for money package.
All the way through this course I have been extremely impressed with the excellent support that has been in place for students, and this provides confidence that issues are resolved promptly with fair consideration.
Thanks for the great Course, I really enjoyed it.
… excellent modules and the scenarios were great; the FAQ’s were also a great help.
I have finished the full course. Thank you for your help during it. It has been an excellent tool as I implement our ISO 27001.
We were audited by BSI in the month of June and India office has now achieved the ISO 9001:2015 certification and I would like to thank you for all the assistance that you have provided during the Internal Auditor certification process for my employees.
Thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it both stimulating and useful. The quizzes at the end of each section were particularly helpful.
The training modules are brilliant and the tests associated with each module also very good. Excellent course, excellent support from John and can thoroughly recommend this course 100%
Just completed my online internal auditor transition course (ISO 9001:2015). Now, the illusion is that online courses are easy, and there is no value in them at all. Well, forget that one, this course is no pushover by any means and the way it is structured really does push you.
Ultan on the Support Team was fantastic every time … The support was excellent and made the Course a lot more achievable. Definitely glad I completed it and am looking forward to applying my skills
… after completing the course I have had a fantastic insight into what the expectation of my role is. The scenarios were great as a hands-on approach to use the Standard and work out any non-conformities.
It has a way of communicating an idea or a theory that makes you wonder why you never thought of it, or knew about it before, but more importantly in a way that you are highly unlikely to forget the lesson.
