Endorsed by the RSPO, this course provides the foundation knowledge to understand the RSPO Supply Chain Certification System. This course has been compiled to make it easier for palm oil companies and auditors to understand the RSPO system for supporting the production of sustainable palm oil. The course is based on the core RSPO documentation and we have provided more information where necessary or made references to related resources online.
The course is divided up into the following sections:
- What is Palm Oil
- What is Certified Sustainable Palm Oil
- RSPO Supply Chain Standard
- RSPO Supply Chain Certification
We have included a section to download all the relevant RSPO documentation: general guidances, user-specific guidances, book & claim guidances and the RSPO standard and systems documentation.
There will be a final evaluation assessment at the end of the course which is compulsory for those intending to take this course as part of the RSPO auditor competency. A certificate will be available for those that have successfully passed the course evaluation.
