I previously worked for a Tier 1 Supplier to Ford, GM & Chrysler and knew the requirements for Internal Auditor Training. We sent our future auditors to an outside company for this training which also included the training on the core requirements.
I am now employeed with a company that is Tier 2, 3 and 4 to Ford, GM & Chrysler. Can someone tell me if the requirements are the same? Or can I (RABQSA Certified Internal Auditor) train our future auditors?

Auditors need to be competent. Yes, you can train your own internal auditors. Just make sure that you consider any customer-specific (audit and auditor training) requirements if applicable.
