Training - Internal Auditor Course
The internal auditor course is completed over two days (and generally on your site).
The following competencies can be achieved from the course:
BSBAUD402 (Participate in a Quality Audit); and
BSBAUD501 (Initiate a Quality Audit).
The objectives of the course are as follows:
Understanding auditing methodology from audit planning to reporting audit results;
Understanding the relevant management system standards (e.g. ISO9001, AS4801) and the role of the management system in assisting organisations to operate effectively and efficiently;
Understanding the requirements for procedures, work instructions, process improvement plans and other documentation that support the management system and the document control techniques applicable to such documentation;
Understanding the relationship between the management system and the business process and the need for the management system to enhance business performance;
Understanding of the different types of audits, the makeup and function of internal audit teams and the role and responsibilities of the audit team leader;
Understanding auditing etiquette and the importance of relationship building with the auditee and within the audit team;
The course is generally run for 8 hours per day and consists of an open book assessment and competency assessment based on role plays. Participants who pass the assessment are issued with a certificate of attainment, whereas those who do not pass the assessment (or who choose not to sit the assessment) are issued with a certificate of attendance.
The course is generally completed on site, so that practical auditing skills can be utilised straight away.
This provides your business with two benefits:
1. some of your management system can be audited; and
2. the training is both competence and theory based.
Classes are structured around facilitator / participant interface. When there is one facilitator present the maximum number of participants should be 12.
For 13 - 20 participants there should be two facilitators present.
