BSBSS00128 Lead Auditor Skill Set

These units of competency from the BSB Business Services Training Package meet industry requirements for leading an audit in many industries. While relevant to many professionals that need the Lead Auditor qualification, this course is especially useful for people considering becoming an NDIS Auditor as the course satisfies the requirements as specified by the NDIS for its auditors. The NDIS is an important sector, and we have helped hundreds of people pursue successful careers in this area.

In addition to the NRT qualification, ATOL have bundled the training to also include an Exemplar Global Lead Auditor qualification, which is recognised by industry internationally.  

Combining these two qualifications ensures at the conclusion of you training you will have a a comprehensive understanding of how to conduct and lead both internal and external audits. 

  • Promote yourself as a lead auditor
  • Create new opportunities for yourself as an NDIS auditor
  • Assess an organizations management system against ISO Standards requirements as a lead auditor
  • Understand the responsibilities of leading an audit team
  • Write, review and provide feedback on management system audit reports
  • Obtain awareness of the processes that an organization should be taking to address and correct nonconformances
  • Document nonconformances within an audit report
