Improving global working conditions is important for workers, and it’s important for businesses and consumers. As the field of social performance expands from auditing to actual capacity building, the professional requirements for auditors and consultants evolve daily. Now, more than ever, having the tools to help companies and individuals measure and improve in these areas is critical.

SAI training courses are designed to encourage proficiency in social compliance and emphasize the implementation of management systems in combination with performance elements.These courses are required for all SA8000 and BSCI auditors, and are just as valuable to internal auditors, buyers, managers and workers for auditing to any labor code or standard. The courses are open to all.

Complimentary seats for NGOs & trade unions: SAI believes that NGOs and trade unions play a critical role in helping to ensure human rights at work around the world. As class sizes vary based on venue capacity, we limit these complimentary seats to one representative per class. Please contact SAI Training Manager Stephanie Wilson for more information -
