This is competency based, certified, lead auditor training session.  This course covers for management systems of the Occupational Health & Safety standard oriented to ISO 45001.  It is designed for persons and organizations that have an OH&S system, that are considering expanding to implement an OH&S system, persons looking to get exposure to the ISO45001 standard in order to audit OHS system, and for persons that want to become Exemplar Global certified OHS auditors. 

About the course:

Led by energetic, enthusiastic, and experienced internationally certified auditor’s, students get more than "slide readers" at all QAI training sessions. 

In this Lead Auditor course, students receive real-world, professional know-how partnered with outstanding training materials.  You'll leave with handsome, durable, and professionally prepared student workbook that will not only display well in your knowledge center, but that you will find invaluable as a reference and resource long after the training class has ended. Additionally, you get the support of an ISO 9001 registered training company. 

Our Lead Auditor training course prepares graduates to become proficient and effective professional auditors.  Students learn with multiple, progressive learning approaches including hands-on practice auditing.

The course includes a detailed review of the ISO 45001.  Workshop activities help reinforce learning and lead to hands-on opportunities for students to demonstrate competency. The entire session is a learning process that is a progressive series of activities that build on each other. Students learn, practice applying learned information, demonstrate competency, and then we move to the next lesson.   Review sessions combined with Q&A sessions help solidify the base and become the launching point to the next activity.  Activities are combined into a student binder providing students the chance to see, and further study if they like, how each activity builds on the previous activity.  This culminates at the end of the training when students lead a closing meeting with the instructor to present their audit findings and final recommendation for the weeklong audit that they have been working on both as an audit team member and occasionally as the team leader. 

Students must pass a comprehensive set of competency evaluations.  Not just written tests; many of the evaluations are hands-on activities that the student demonstrates the ability to conduct or complete the task which is what competency based training is all about.  By the conclusion of the multi-day review, the student has demonstrated proficiencies at all of the tasks and activities that are needed to be a Lead Auditor.  A final examination is part of this evaluation process. 

For all ISO 45001 lead auditor events, there is a special module for Job Hazards Analysis and Hazards Identification.  This is a similar method to our environmental approach, is a method we taught in previous OHSAS trainings, but focuses on the updated requirements found in the new OH&S standard. This critical learning activity takes up to a few hours of class time.

Auditing, team auditing, and leading an audit team are taught.  Students learn about process auditing, what a process audit looks like, and how-to-perform a process audit. The formal structure of the audit is taught so that students can exemplify the professionalism needed for second and third-party audits.  Opening and closing meetings are described and practiced in the lead auditor workshop. Workshop activities are designed to strengthen a student's ability to assess a complete management system and its conformance to the dual management system requirements. 

Group case studies with mock auditing reinforce the learning process and help to further familiarize students with process auditing, but most importantly provide the opportunity to put newly learned methods and techniques into action is a safe, comfortable training environment with known outcomes and under the tutelage of a seasoned professional.  

The course is designed around a week-long case study of a fictitious facility that is managing an OHS-EMS integrated Management System.  Students end the course by completing the assessment of the case study facility and making a recommendation on possible registration. 

With competency based training,

We administer multiple examinations and activities throughout the course.   Assessments are made regarding competency.  Multiple assessments are therefore made.  This means that students get feedback at multiple points throughout their learning session.  The ability to receive feedback and make adjustments right away helps improves a student's learning experience. No giant final examination and no cram session for a final examination is necessary.  Students are being examined and assessed throughout the entire class.  When they leave the class, they will already know if they have successfully passed the course.  They won't have to wait for weeks to find out exam results when you choose QAI as your training partner.

Class hours are 8a-5p daily with no assigned homework!

If you're in line to take a lead auditor training class and have blended systems at your organization or are considering blended systems, you'll really like the QAI competency based training for blended EMS & OH&S systems. 

About the virtual training: 

Virtual training is conducted in the time zone listed.  QAI uses the Cisco Webex Training System. In order for the virtual training to be interactive, like our in-person sessions always were, we use multiple tools to accomplish collaboration and document sharing.  This requires that a student have multiple browser windows open at the same time. There’s no way around this in the virtual world.  For instance, you will review an electronic copy of a process and you will need to complete an electronic form at the same time.  That will require two-windows to be open at the same time. People comment that it should be all on one screen- it is on one screen: yours with multiple windows open. We have yet to find a way around that reality. 

Tools you will need, want, or wish you had for virtual training: 
Windows 10 operating system
A headset with microphone is STRONGLY Suggested 
Dual Monitors is STRONGLY suggested (definitely helps with the multiple browser windows) 
Ability to access QAI’s SharePoint folders and sites for the training

After you register for a class: 

-Registered students will receive an email from QAI to test their readiness for the virtual training
-Once the student completes the readiness quiz, they will be accepted into the training roster. 
-QAI will ship our high-quality student workbook and a copy of the standard to the student two weeks ahead of start date to the address specified in the virtual training readiness quiz.  
-The student will receive an invitation to the virtual training event about one-week before start date. 
-The training starts at 8a.  Students can join up to the 30-minutes prior to the start time just to ensure there are no connectivity issues. 
-Training usually takes place in a quiet area.  Please join from a quiet space (another reason for a headset)
