Internal Auditor Training

INTRODUCTION TO INTERNAL AUDITING WORKSHOP: Quest Analytical staff has been training auditors to audit quality programs since 1996, with emphasis on the ISO 9001 based standards. Our auditor training materials are prepared by IRCA certified auditors.

This course introduces the basic steps critical for internal auditors including forming and asking questions, opening and closing meetings, writing nonconformances, and preparing audit reports.

As with all Quest Analytical courses, your materials are incorporated into the training. For internal auditor training your materials including procedures, work instructions, and forms are used during the workshop to make the material more realistic to your auditors.

Who Should Attend: New Internal Auditors who need introduction to theory and practice of auditing skills or practiced Internal Auditors who may like to increase their auditing skills.

Add value to your internal audit process with this focused workshop designed to simplify, improve understanding, and add depth to your process.

The Introduction To Internal Auditing Workshop lasts 2 days and covers the ISO standard, auditing techniques, and practice exercises for all aspects of auditing. This course focuses on hands-on practice exercises extensively. An additional day of training can be added to the workshop to allow your auditors to practice auditing according to your internal audit schedule. This allows auditors to get some real-life practice during the training.
