Date: 13 August 2017 - 17 August 2017
Location: Takoradi, Ghana
Event Type:

The 5-day P&C Lead Auditor training course is designed for assessors who want to carry out audits for the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO); company staff who want in-depth knowledge of RSPO requirements and how to meet them; and stakeholders, such as NGOs or government officials, who want a rigorous introduction to RSPO standards and systems. The course includes lectures, workshops, a practical audit exercise and a written examination.


The course trainers are themselves qualified Lead Auditors and experts on specific topic areas (such as High Conservation Values (HCV) and Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC)), and have extensive RSPO experience. The course will bring together their collective experience in the planning and implementation of RSPO and builds on the wealth of local experience we have working in West Africa.
