Could I accomplish the ISO 13485 Lead Auditor Training online ? Is that recognized ?

If yes, any recommendations on good institutes who provide ISO 13485 Lead Auditor Training online ?

Thank you

I'd suggest that part of the benefit of doing a class-room based course, is the interaction with people - not just the academics. Sitting in front of a computer is no substitute for the dynamics in the role playing, for example. I'd suggest that on-line is sterile compared to actually doing all the tasks of an audit, real time, which is what you get in a conventional class type environment.

No, you can't. In order to become a Lead Auditor, you must attend a recognized course. Part of the course requirements is for auditor-candidate to be assessed in hir/her ability to communicate (including verbal) with auditees. That could not be accomplished online if you have no interaction with other people.

During a Lead Auditor Course, candidates are assessed on many things. The written test at the end of the course is ONE of a number of assessments the candidate goes through.

No? Reg, how can that be said when it's not in the standard (if it is, please take me there). There are some junk courses out there that are done in a classroom setting charging 1k plus for the course. I say search and educate yourself. If you can afford the classroom type, go for it. If online; go for that.

Having taught the LA course for a (significant) number of years, I can confirm that an on-line course - if such were available - wouldn't be very effective in delivering what's needed to learn and then demonstrate competency in this role. There's sufficient grumbling that 36 hours doesn't make an competent lead auditor in a class room setting anyway - and that's WITH the dynamics that ONLY instructor led training can provide. A "blended" approach to the learning MIGHT work, but I'd suggest that the key parts of becoming a "lead" (audit team leader) can ONLY be demonstrated effectively in a class room environment.
