RSPO-Endorsed SCC 2020 Lead Auditor Course (CheckMark Training)


01 Oct 2020 - 03 Oct 2020, 0600 BST




In view of the current uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreaks, the Training Committee of the RSPO secretariat has agreed to allow the SCC Lead Auditor (LA) course to be conducted virtually.

  • The benefits of allowing on-line training are clear and do not need to be listed here. 
  • CheckMark Training take our responsibilities very seriously in delivering the most up to date and effective SCC training.
  • We ensure that all SCC auditors start their careers with a total and fundamental understanding of the RSPO SCC Standard and Systems (February 2020) and the SCC requirements for CPO Mills as detailed in P3.8 of the RSPO P&C 2018.
  • This provides the necessary foundation for Certification bodies to further develop auditor competency and audit skills, with all the considerable advantages and in accordance with the RSPO SCC Systems.
