How often should an internal auditor be trained?
Currently there are Auditors who have highlighted that the Certicate states the certificate expires after 3 years from the date of the course delivery.
We argue that the content of the Internal Auditing training has not changed and as long as the management recognise that the training given is sufficient there is no other requirement to be trained again.

Re: Internal Auditor Training

Saundy, welcome to the Cove :bigwave:

The 3 years you mention is only really relevant if your auditors wish to go on and register with IRCA - which is an optional step and must be done within 3 years of undergoing training if you choose that route.

I would be more tempted to look at the quality of the audits they conduct and if you are happy with them, leave things as they are. If you are not happy with the results, consider refresher training and/or run some practical workshops where you get your auditors together and discuss the problem areas and seek solutions.

How often should an internal auditor be trained?
As often - or as infrequently - as required to establish that they are competent. The key point is competency: are your auditors competent? If so, why would they need to be trained again?

Colpart is right - the 3 year thing is for registration. If you are getting good results from your internal auditors, there's probably no need to retrain them.

You could consider whether you need some update professional development-type of 'training' to keep their skills up to date (eg, revisions to 9001), but this could be accomplished as easily as a group discussion/meeting, or having them read it - definitely doesn't need a whole day or course!
