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.
What are the advantages of this online course?
This high-quality e-learning course combines engaging lectures by a professional instructor with rich animations, graphics, diagrams and video clips, and includes interactive quizzes to check progress. As a result, you'll learn quickly, retain long-term, and even enjoy the course – and that's a big difference to other online courses that often are nothing more than unstructured content, computer-generated audio, and lacking visuals.
This e-learning course also offers several advantages over other types of training:
Study at your chosen location, no matter if in the office, at home or by the beach.
You can learn whenever you want, no matter if you want to start mornings in the office and continue evenings at home.
Study as fast or slow as you want. You may pause and even repeat lessons as needed.
Works on any internet-connected device without the need for special software or setup. You can also switch between devices.
Cheaper than public classes, and there aren't any travel expenses either.
You can start your online training right after payment.
Other training formats have their own characteristics, pros and cons. But for those looking for an intensive lead auditor course, this online training is ideal.
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, the final exam is completely optional. These are your options:
Certificate of Attendance
After completing the course, you'll receive a Certificate of Attendance – without taking the final exam. It's all you need to meet the ISO 9001:2015 requirement on training records.
Certificate of Attainment
You may also choose to take an online, multiple-choice exam to receive a Certificate of Attainment that shows the Competency Units earned (in this case, the QM, AU and TL Competency Units) and the prestigious Exemplar Global certification mark. This type of certificate not only serves as evidence of training but also shows that all related competencies have been acquired.
It's an impressive display of achievement that can be used to boost your qualifications on a resume, and to become an Exemplar Global Certified Lead Auditor.
Both types of certificate include blockchain verification and can be digitally shared on LinkedIn and other social media.
How many attempts do I have to pass the exam?
You may take the optional final exam – free of charge – as often as needed to pass it (the passing score is 70%).
After answering all questions, you'll be presented with your final score and a comprehensive review of the results. You'll also be able to retake any lessons to brush up on your knowledge.
