How does this course compare to the Internal Auditing Basics video course?
The Internal Auditing Basics video course is very different from this intensive online course. The video is a short, introductory course that gives employees an overview of internal audits and how to conduct them.
If you and/or your team are already committed to becoming auditors, you only need the online training.
If you are trying to recruit an audit team or are thinking about becoming an auditor, the video will help with the decision before committing and taking intensive online training.
I would like to sign up 10 employees. Can they take this course independently while I monitor their progress?
Yes, your employees can take the course independently and according to their own schedule while you track their progress. This is how it works:
Select a course quantity (10 in our example) and complete your purchase.
You will instantly receive an email with login instructions to the online course management dashboard.
Enter name and email address for each of the 10 employees. The system will immediately email each assigned employee their login instructions for the course.
Each of your 10 employees can now independently take the course at their convenience – anytime, anywhere. They can pause and resume the self-paced course as needed, and can switch computers whenever they want. Course access is available for 3 months from the day of enrollment (but can be extended upon request).
You will see their progress in your online dashboard.
Upon completion of the course, each employee will receive a verified certificate that they can digitally share and that you can directly access and retain as evidence of training.
Is there a time restriction on completing the course?
Yes, you need to complete the course within 3 months from the date of enrollment. In our experience, this is more than enough. Nevertheless, you may extend course access for as long as needed.
Do I have to take an exam?
No, this course does NOT include an examination and lead auditor certification. If you require the proctored examination to gain ISO 9001 Lead Auditor Certification with all its professional and career benefits, please consider our ISO 9001:2015 Lead Auditor Certification Training instead.
Is this course accredited by Exemplar Global?
Though 9001Simplified is an Exemplar Global Certified Training Provider and Examiner, this course doesn't include examination, certification, and Exemplar Global accreditation.
If you require the prestigious Exemplar Global certification mark, along with the proctored examination to gain ISO 9001 Lead Auditor Certification with all its professional and career benefits, please consider our ISO 9001:2015 Lead Auditor Certification Training instead.
