ABOUT THE COURSE
This training was born because of the pandemic and virtual training.

This training breaks a full week of staring at a screen in a lead auditor training and dissects that training into two manageable chunks of time.  This is part two for students that have completed one of the QAI Champion training courses. 

We also have just a little more time to cover this training material in this 3-day session which provides a little breathing space for everyone involved. 

This training revolves around our online case study example company.  Students will plan a recertification audit.  They will learn about opening meetings including a video of an opening meeting conducted in the perfect amount of time. We progress into how to conduct process audits.  

Then students are immersed into a multi-day, multi-person simulation audit.  Students get lots of practice in our two round robin mock audit activities.  By the end of the simulation students will have participated in six practice audits. 

From the audits, we learn about managing audit activities and records so that nonconformities can be properly written.  The closing meeting occurs.  The final audit report is written.  There are audit follow-up activities to address. Then students take a final exam. 

Students must have the QAI Champion training certificate earned within six months of class date to register for this training.  Coupling the Champion training certificate with this certificate, QAI will issue students that complete this training will receive a Lead Auditor training certificate for QMS, EMS, or OHS, depending on Champion certificates presented to QAI. 

Which brings us full circle to why this class was created:  get trained as a lead auditor without being out of commission for a full week at a time!!
