Re: ISO Coordinator/Auditor Career?!

1. I currently work as an ISO Management Rep. maybe titled as ISO Coordinator at other companies. At my company it is a full time postion as well as the Internal Auditor position. Are company has an umbrella certification so we have serveral facilities to audit and keep documents and data for. Much of the data we use is concerning product quality and other requirements and useful data to production. You may also be required to perform supplier audits.

2. There are many courses including Lean Six Sigma that may be useful.

3. As for growth it is infinite. You can go into production as a manager based on your knowledge of procedures and practices, QA Manager, Director of Compliance, etc.

4.This field seems to growing as more standards are always on the horizion. But they may mean more work piled on. You can also move onto being a external auditor. As the world becomes more standardized the need will only increase for auditors.

5. I do not quite understand this question but it may have been answered in #3

Hope this helps.

Best wishes on your career.

Re: ISO 9001 Coordinator/Auditor Career?!

1).I wish to ask if ISO -Coordinator is a full job or a part time one? By part time I mean that doing one job and along with it also looking after ISO things of same company?
Let me call it as the MR and it is wrong (IMHO) to be a full time MR. Even the standard mentions that this responsibility is additional irrespective of other responsibilities.
3) Is there any growth for an ISO Co-ordinator/Auditor in a company?
Certainly yes, when added with a core responsibility. When you are not responsible for any core process, you will be tossed around.
4) what is his future in this field?
Brite.... not just created by being an ISO Co-ordinator/Auditor in a company.

4) what is his future in this field?
In many small companies it is a part time position.

Making a career- It depends on the industry. The more regulated the industry the more important compliance to the standard is. There are many courses offered in auditing and quality management that can add to your credentials.

Growth-It is useful knowledge and is usually considered an asset.

Future-
The future depends on the industry that you are working in. There is always a demand for employees that improve systems.

You could consider -

ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor Training (RABQSA Certified) from ASQ OR

International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA)

Besides having the Lead Auditor training, you can plan some additional courses - ASQ also offers lot of certifications - see "Find the Certification That's Right for You"

If you are based outside of US, your country will also have similar courses. Pls let us know if you need additional information.
