Subchapter M Auditor Certification Course
October 8 - October 10
Subchapter M requires auditors to successfully complete a training course for auditing a Towing Safety Management System (TSMS). This three-day course teaches external (third-party) auditors how to audit a company’s TSMS, with an emphasis on those companies using the American Waterways Operators’ Responsible Carrier Program as the framework for their TSMS. Students who successfully complete this course will have an in-depth understanding of auditing both safety management systems and the vessels that operate under those systems and what compliance means under Subchapter M. This is the appropriate course for those individuals seeking certification to become an approved TPO Auditor, as well as an RCP Lead Auditor/Vessel Auditor. This course is also ideal for company personnel who want to better understand the expectations of their external auditor. This course meets the requirements of 46 CFR 139.130 (b)(4) for those seeking to perform external audits under a TPO.
