Lead Auditor Skills Course Content
Our Lead Auditor Skills Training Program is an online course for those wishing to upgrade their auditing skills to the level required of Lead Auditors.
The course is intended for three kinds of learners:
- Those who have a thorough knowledge of the Standard of interest (say, ISO 14001 or ISO 50001), do not want to undertake a lengthy Auditor Program and wish to upgrade their Lead Auditor skills to the professional level.
- Those who wish to act as Audit Program Manager for their organization.
- Those who are unable to find a suitable Lead Auditor Training Program for the management system standard of interest. There are 40+ ISO Management System Standards and courses are commonly available for only 4/5 of them. The best solution is to get a thorough knowledge of the Standard and combine that with a Lead Auditor Skills Program to have the combination of skills and knowledge to undertake effective Audits.
