Lead Auditor FAQ

Who uses ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 is becoming a pre-requisite for an ever-increasing number of state and federal government departments both within Australia and overseas. For importers and exporters it is becoming an essential gauge of an established and reliable supplier. More and more governments overseas are using ISO 9001 as a form of regulation for importers.

ISO 9001 is the basis for many industry standards, such as NDIS, National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Almost any and every type of business, from general manufacturing to flight training schools to accountancies and training organisations can become ISO 9001 certified.

What will I learn?

We will teach you how to conduct an audit using actual checklists from ISO 9001:2015. 

All of our training is based on a structured class discussion. We keep our class sizes small and drive healthy class discussion to keep you awake and to keep it relevant. It means you can get lots of real life examples from us and your classmates that you can use when you get back to work.
