Must a registrar employ a certified lead auditor?

ISPS Auditor

Our training is based on real life situations, with workshops designed to offer practical experience and preparation.  QMII students learn to develop, implement and audit the security of the complete supply chain including processes on board and ashore (including in port).

The ISPS Code requires establishment of ship and port facility security plans.  The Code places responsibility for the ship security squarely on the companies charged with the ship's management.  We offer ISPS training with various options to meet our clients’ needs.  This three-day course covers the requirements of ISPS Code.

For Vessel, Company and Port Facility Security Officers we provide a combined Maritime Security Officer course certified by USCG and MARAD.

We also offer custom-tailored in-house courses with a maritime focus.  An intensive 3-day ISPS Code course is recommended for VSOs, CSOs, mariners, auditors and other interested parties involved in maritime security.

Ask about our ISPS Code training in conjunction with ISO 28000 ( Supply Chain Security Management Systems).
