HOUSTON, April 13, 2012 /PR Newswire/ -- The International Register for Certificated Auditor (IRCA) recognized Bureau Veritas Certification for the IRCA 5002 Energy Management Systems Auditor Conversion Training Course (course certification number A17573). Bureau Veritas Certification is the first training organization to receive the distinction. IRCA is the world's original and largest international certification body for auditors of management systems. The role of this organization is to register auditors with high level credentials, as well as recognize training courses that enable auditors to attain excellence.
ISO 50001 is the global energy management standard, developed to help companies implement new practices to better manage and reduce energy use. Released in June 2011, it provides organizations a way to take an active role in fighting global warming and to respond to economic constraints in a new global market.
Having a thorough understanding of ISO 50001 is the first step to its efficient implementation. Bureau Veritas Certification specially developed this training course to help companies gain valuable insight and understanding of the standard's requirements. As the course was initially designed for the qualification of auditors, it is the most advantageous approach for managers and consultants to achieve a superior level of proficiency. All Bureau Veritas training instructors have significant experience with the standard, as well as notable backgrounds in energy efficiency.
According to David Vigil, Program Manager North America, 'IRCA recognition of our IRCA 5002 Energy Management Systems Auditor Conversion Training Course (course certification number A17573) demonstrates a continued commitment by Bureau Veritas Certification to take a leadership role in the Energy Management System Certification market.
