Will Registrars recognize this course as a credential to become a third-party Lead Auditor?
No. The ISO courses offered by SAE International are intended for those who implement and/or perform internal audits within their company.
Do the courses have prerequisites?
Only auditor courses have prerequisites. Learners need to take the standard/training course before taking the auditor course. Therefore, it is recommended to take the lead auditor courses, which incorporate both standard training and auditing to the standard.
What is the difference between the standard, auditor and lead auditor courses?
The standard/training course covers the requirements of the standard. The auditor course focuses on case studies on internal auditing to the standard. The lead auditor course is a combination of the standard and auditor courses, plus added content.
Are the standards provided with the courses?Most ISO courses provide licensed excerpts of the applicable standards that are view only. Printing or copying of the standards’ material is a violation of copyright. While not a requirement for course purchase, it is recommended you purchase the full standard to reference as you progress through the course to help ensure context, retention, and recall. ISO standards may be purchased from ANSI at http://www.webstore.ansi.org. The IATF 16949:2016 Standard may be purchased from AIAG at http://www.aiag.org.
What is the access period (time limit) for completing the course?
Each course has a one-year access period from the date of purchase. You must finish all course requirements and retrieve your certificate of completion within that period.
Can I access a course sample?
Due to limitations on distribution of the standard, we do not provide samples.
Can I go back to look at the training slides or quizzes once I finish the course?
No, once you complete the course, you will only be able to access your certificate. We recommend you take notes as you progress.
