Root Cause Analysis Training Course*

(1 Day)


*This 1-day course satisfies part of the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) requirements for individuals maintaining certification under the IRCA Auditor Certification Scheme.

The successful delegate will understand the basics of Root Cause Analysis.

Root Cause Analysis is a process analysis method which can be used to identify the factors that cause adverse events. Essentially, if there exist an unwanted situation which consumes resources and tends to happen in a repeated fashion, there is a possibility that it might be beneficial to figure out what is really causing this situation to occur and remove it so the situation does not occur again.

This raises several questions:

  • How does one determine which situations are candidates for root cause analysis?
  • How does one figure out what the root cause is?
  • Does the removal of the cause entail less resource expenditure than it takes to continue to deal with the symptom?

This course addresses these questions and much more.

Persons who should attend this course include:

  • Those responsible for managing their current Management Systems
  • Persons who responsible for affecting corrective action and preventive action activities
  • Individuals designing and implementing new Management Systems
  • Persons who may be training others in disciplines of root cause analysis
