4-Day Lead Auditor

Being trained as an ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor just got easier. Our 5-day course has been both improved and shortened into a new 4-day version.

The 5-day ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor course was certified by the RABQSA through the Training Course Certification (TCC) program. The TCC program emphasizes content more than competency. It ensures that the necessary course subjects are covered in satisfactory depth. As a result, the 5-day course required 40 class hours and long days. Students complained it was too much to cover in too little time.

Our new 4-day ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor course is certified by the RABQSA through its Training Provider and Examiner Certification Scheme (TPECS) program. The TPECS program is more focused on competency and allows more flexibility on content and duration. It is designed to reflect innovative learning and assessment practices, as well as, to demonstrate that students achieve the level of knowledge competence needed for RABQSA personnel certification.

Students successfully completing our new 4-day Lead Auditor course receive a Certificate of Attainment for each of these RABQSA knowledge competency units:

QM – Quality Management Systems
AU – Management Systems Auditing
TL – Leading Management Systems Audit Teams

Due to the modular nature of the new course, students can enroll for the first two days to complete the Requirements portion (QM), add one more day to be trained as an Internal Auditor (AU), or go all four days to be trained as a Lead Auditor (TL).

Exams are given at the end of each competency unit. Certificates of Attainment are provided to students who are deemed “Competent” for each competency unit. Certificates of Attendance are provided to students that do not pass a competency exam. Students will be given an opportunity to retake an exam.

The 2-day QM course is ISO 9001:2008 Requirements with a fee of $895. You can see the course description and enroll at this web page. The class hours are:

Day 1: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Day 2: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The 3-day QM+AU course is ISO 9001:2008 Internal Auditor with a fee of $1195. You can see the course description and enroll at this web page. The class hours are:

Day 1: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Day 2: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Day 3: 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM

The 4-day QM+AU+TL course is ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor with a fee of $1695. You can see the course description and enroll at this web page. The class hours are:

Day 1: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Day 2: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Day 3: 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM
Day 4: 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM

This modular structure means someone can attend the 3-day Internal Auditor course and return later to pick up the fourth day (TL) to complete the Lead Auditor course. In the past, students would attend a 3-day Internal Auditor course and return later to take the 5-day Lead Auditor course. What would take eight days can now be completed in only four days.
