Lead Auditor Training

#1
Hi All,

I am looking into going to a Lead Auditor Training and our ISO Consultant referred me to this website to get opinions on what training you all have taken and suggest for a new ISO certified employee to get Lead Auditor Training.

I have just begun my search, but there are so many out there so I decided to come back here while I am looking. So far it seems like ASQ is a good training resource, but their next training is full and they don't have the dates for the next one released. I was also looking at QPS.

Any opinions on Lead Auditor Training that you have experience with? Positive and negative?

First determine your learning objectives and specify them as your selection criteria.

Apart from planning, conducting and reporting system audits you may also wish to choose a course that shows you how to develop an organization's process-based management system.

That would be totally out of scope and the typical syllabus for an auditor training course.

As someone who used to teach IRCA-recognized Lead Auditor Training courses and have interacted with many other instructors, the caliber of the trainer is paramount for a valuable and engaging experience.

Lead Auditor courses - accredited ones, specifically - don’t teach ANYTHING about implementation. The course development criteria see to that.

I believe John was suggesting an additional course for the above.

Welcome to The Cove!

Accredited auditor training is supposed to meet a set of requirements that provides some assurance that the various offerings are not wildly different from each other. I still would favor spending my money at a well-established place that I feel sure would have the resources to create and deliver a course properly. I got my ISO 9001:2015 Lead Auditor training from Bureau Veritas in Houston in 2018. They did well.

Will you be managing the audit program?

I agree.

But the standard syllabus does not prevent the teaching of system development and in gathering the learning objectives of each student attending lead auditor classes I discovered that more than half of the students wanted to apply their learning in this way.

I currently manage the audit program at my company and am trying to gain more knowledge around auditing, QMS leadership, and just ISO in general. The lead auditor program was suggested to me.

Why do you need a Lead Auditor training course? How are you going to use the training received?
The course was suggested to me by the person that gives our Internal Auditor Training. I was recently certified and my manager has been slowly giving me the QMS roles at the company so she can focus more on the other aspects of her department. I currently oversee the internal auditing training and am looking to gain more knowledge so that I can be of more help to the internal auditors at the company as most of them have been certified and completing audits for much more time than I have.
