This course helps you understand the basics of auditing. You’ll learn how to prepare, perform, report, and close an audit. It is ideal for new auditors, those preparing to be on an audit team, and people who will soon be audited and want to understand the auditing process.
Gain a basic understanding of how to conduct an internal audit. Learn the audit conventions for preparing, performing, reporting, and follow-up. New internal auditors will learn what they need to know to conduct an audit using any performance standard (such as: ISO 9001, FDA GMPs, FAA, ISO 14000, HACCP, and so on). The lessons follow the audit process from initial acceptance of the audit assignment through reporting what was found. The Internal Auditing Basics course consists of a series of lessons, illustrations, diagrams, examples, supplemental handout information, interactive exercises, and quizzes. A handy desk reference, QualityWBT comprehensive glossary, and Auditor Code of Conduct are included in the class as PDF files. Successful completion of the class will result in a certificate of completion with CEUs.
