Hi, we are performing our internal auditing and had just took over this role recently. As there are only a few internal auditors, would like to train more personnel to be auditors. Is it possible for someone in the company who is a trained auditor to train and certify them on internal training?
If so, what should the training contents contain? Thanks.

Audit Standard as follow: ISO9001 & ISO13485.

Welcome to The Cove! :bigwave:

Your organization can indeed internally train auditors. The expected end result is competence, and you get to decide how to get it.

This subject comes up pretty often, so I would like to direct you to the links to related threads at the bottom of this page. When you open up some of those threads, look at the bottom of those pages too; there may be different links than before.

After you read some of the threads, please ask what specific questions occur to you.

I hope this helps!

Hi Jennifer and Harry,
Thanks for the information. Have managed to gather some information and I have one more question: Could we use the same method & material for ISO9001 to ISO13485? As ISO13485 relates to medical device, will it be compulsory to engage a consultant for Internal Auditing training?

It's these kinds of questions that make me suggest that the most effective training is to find an outside source - but be careful who you get to do the training.

You will save yourself a lot of time and effort making student and instructor materials for the training, plus the right trainer will bring a wealth of experience and more knowledge than probably anyone in your organization has. If you have a trained internal auditor at the moment, that doesn't mean they are going to be any good at training others and you could end up with a bigger problem than when you started!

Andy has raised a good point. I could make a training program for internal auditors where I work, but I would not have the depth of industry experience that made my week-long stint at Lead Auditor training so valuable. At least one of your team (hopefully the manager) should have this training for an effective audit team, in my opinion. I'm glad I went for my TS Lead Auditor training. I expect I would be just as grateful if it were for a medical QMS.
