What the course covers

The course Certified Impact Auditor covers the basics of what is needed to work as an auditor. Background to why we have audits, different types of audits and particularly the standards used. 

Extra focus will be put on the revised ISO26000 Standard where the Sustainable Development Goals are included. A Self Declaration is there for companies to go through their Sustainability work. As an auditor this will be a declaration to verify. 

The certification is a digital online train-the-auditor education that provides knowledge around ethical business and development. The content is curated and many international organizations, professors and companies are cited. A lot of work on how we have to go about to reach Agenda 2030 is already out there. Now we need to make it happen!

Part A consists of theory and Test                 

Part B consists of Pilot where you get to audit a company.    
Both parts need to be completed in order to be certified.

What You Will Learn

The course focuses on what is needed in terms of being an auditor. A background is given to why we have audits and what different kinds there are. A walk through the Sustainable Development Goals feels like a must. The 10 Principles in the UN Global Compact is like a backbone in Social corporate development and is also included to go with ISO2600.

The Swedish revised ISO26000 and associated self-declaration is here and we will look at what differs from the 2010 version and how it is now structured. 

The course is a train-the-auditor education that provides theory as well as a pilot audit that you do on a company of your choice with supervision from us.

This course will make you an ambassador for Agenda 2030. After you have earned your certification as an Impact Auditor, you will have the opportunity to join the network of VATIs Common Ground where you may start working as an auditor!

Johanna Richardsson,

Certified Change Leader & Auditor 

Organizational development and social responsibility interests me and these two topics have been my area of expertise the last 10 years. I have been working both as a consultant and employed in larger International organizations. The guiding Principles in UN Global Compact is something I believe in and having the Sustainable Development Goals with sub targets as tools makes it easier to steer towards Agenda 2030. 

Working with sustainability can take many shapes and forms. I run my consultancy firm, work as a board member and I also conduct audits. Conducting audits is a very concrete way to accelerate Agenda 2030 and help companies do the same.
