Before discussing how to become an auditor, let’s just dispel the myths about what an auditor actually does! Are they there purely to check your finances? No! Are they there to ‘dob you in’? No! Are they there to make your life as a small business owner harder? No, quite the opposite!
Traditionally auditors did indeed ‘check the books’, looking for discrepancies and waste. And many very experienced auditors still come from a financial background. but there is a lot more to the job, and the person, than you may think.
Demand For Auditors
ISO Lead Auditor Training is currently very much in demand – because the demand for skilled lead auditors is growing rapidly. As more and more organisations see the benefits of implementing management systems, the greater the demand for internal and lead auditors will become.
Lead auditors work for both private and public companies, and must be able to handle a certain amount of stress. They should also be able to work alone, or in a time, and be flexible, as few days are the same.
Knowledge and Experience
If the sound of all this appeals to you, you may wish to consider undertaking a lead auditor training course. As a lead auditor, you will be expected to have certain knowledge and experience before you start, and your training provider will be able to give you this information.
If you are in Queensland, lead auditor training in Brisbane would be a great choice. There are several providers to select from, including the very well established SC Training Centre.
Make The Change
ISO lead auditor training generally runs over five days, and is presented in modules. All the legal and technical aspects of the work are covered, along with the softer skills of communication, relationship building and reporting.
Who should consider ISO lead auditor training? Anyone who is motivated, analytical, curious, ethical and seeking a change in 2017.
