This virtual instructor-led CQI/IRCA accredited course provides learners with the skills and knowledge that have taken many experienced auditors decades to develop. This course is fundamental to achieving CQI/IRCA Lead Auditor status. During the course, learners will plan, perform, and report audits based on case studies that simulate internal, supplier, and third-party audits utilizing MDSAP audit criteria. Learners will participate in simulated auditing exercises that include planning and performing audit activities, evaluating audit evidence, and documenting audit findings.
The course consists of five days of interactive instruction and auditing sessions followed by a comprehensive written examination on day six. Learners will have two hours to complete the exam, which is provided and proctored in a virtual format (additional time will be added for non-native English-speaking learners, and learners with disabilities).
Learners should enter the QMS Lead Auditor course with a basic understanding of ISO 13485:2016. Mandatory prerequisite reading and a prerequisite competency assessment will be provided upon enrollment. These prerequisites must be completed in advance of the course start date.
