This course teaches the learner how to organise, complete, record and communicate system audits.

It teaches the audit skills so that you can become a great auditor and produce a robust system audit.

Your auditors will learn how to write audit reports, which will impress any external auditor and ensure that the required information is provided so that action can be taken where non-conformances are identified.

Auditing is a practical skill, so the training is packed with practical exercises so that you can test out what you’ve learnt.

Effective system audits ensure that non-conformances don’t get identified during external audits. So why do you get non-conformances on your certification or customer audits? 99% of the time this is because your system audits aren’t as robust as they should be.

Competent internal auditors who really understand the topic that they’re auditing will identify problems more easily than external auditors, because they understand your business better. Finding such problems and fixing them, will mean that they won’t be there for an external auditor to find.

This course will provide your auditors with the skills they need to carry out a good audit. To make it a robust audit, you must also train them in the topic that they’ll be auditing – by combining this course with a course on the relevant topic.

Auditors who complete such training will provide robust audits, which pick up more non-conformances than any external auditor would – so that you can then fix them, before they’re found during an external audit.

About the training

The course includes exercises and takes approx. XX minutes without breaks.

After the unit there is a practical audit-based test which requires you to complete an audit and answer 25 multiple-choice questions about the results from your audit. 70% is required to pass the unit and a certificate will be awarded on successful completion of the course. The test is open book and retakes are free of charge.

If you want to become a qualified internal auditor, we recommend that you complete the super course for internal auditors, which includes this mini training. There are two options to choose from:

  • System audits and GMP inspections for internal auditors (recommended for all standards except Agents and Brokers).
  • System audits for internal auditors (recommended for businesses working to Agents and Brokers certification).

Internal auditor behaviours

Internal auditor behaviours

Behaviours which are aligned with the culture of the business should underpin every system, including how internal auditors behave. Auditing is a learnt behaviour, which requires auditors to be observant, listen to their instincts, be unbiased, act with integrity, and listen and communicate well. This course explains the behaviours of best practice auditors and how these should be displayed.
