Lead And Internal Auditor Training – Things You Need To Understand

Pin It

Richard Saul of RJS Business Systems has been offering courses on lead and internal audit assessor training for many years. In this article, he will explain to you about the auditor training courses that he teaches.

In his career, Richard has probably seen almost all audit scenarios you are likely to encounter. Over time he’s developed methods for the best way to deal with each of these eventualities. Just as importantly, he has learned how it’s possible for you to enhance the value of your reports by making observations and giving suggestions that will be acted on by top level management.

So when he started planning auditor training courses he kept that in under consideration. It goes without saying that knowing the standard you are verifying against is essential and this course will definitely teach you the fundamentals of ISO Standards 18001 ; 9001 and 14001. But familiarity with the standards can only take you so far. You want to learn how to take a look at any scenario and in your mind’s eye, figure out which clause of which standard is most suitable. You want to understand how to assist decision makers see the same potential risk or improvement opportunity that you see.

Richard strongly believes in the power of feedback to to learning, and just to make sure you have not forgotten anything after the training course is over, you will be eligible to receive feedback on any two of your own internal audits you carry out within the next six months after the course.

Richard’s courses are mostly interactive, that means aside from approx three hours of lecture on the 1st morning, most of the time is spent in small groups looking at the real-world examples. The material includes manuals, training records, work directions, audit records, an aspect and impact register, in summary pretty much everything you could come across while performing a real audit.

During case study time, Richard is there to offer general help,or when the course material on it’s own does not provide you with enough information, he can take the part of one of the worked example characters so that you can talk to them.

Courses run throughout the year, and there’s a limit of nine peopl on each course. So do not be concerned if you miss one because there’ll be another course coming up. In-house auditor training courses might be better for companies sending 5 or more staff on a course. They are available any time of year and anywhere in New Zealand. An extra bonus for in house-training is that Richard can plan the course materials to fit your particular requirements. Which means the case study can be your own organisation.
