Course Overview

There are 6 key sections in this training course.

1. Audit
Audits are the lifeblood of any business.

Especially for companies that want to be successful.

Blow your audience away and share that the focus of an audit includes:

  • Product – focus on one product as it flows through the systems of an organization.
  • Process – concentrate on the effectiveness of a process to identify improvements.
  • Regulatory – explore compliance with a set of regulatory guidelines. Such as those imposed upon the Pharmaceutical industry by the FDA.

Next, engage your audience and:

  • Examine what key aspects they need to understand.
  • Explore various types of reviews.
  • Discuss how to view audits as an opportunity that benefits their companies.
  • Stress the effort required to perform a successful audit.
  • Explore traditional views of an audit. For instance, criteria-based audit and audit objectives.

2. Quality audit systems
Quality audits are the systematic examination of an organization’s quality management system (QMS). And, this audit process can be completed by internal or external auditors.

Use the training content to captivate your audience and:

  • Explore pre-audit activity.
  • Discuss how to create an audit history.
  • Explore how to define the scope of an audit.
  • Discuss the benefits of having reviews.
  • Introduce essential aspects (e.g., the scope of the audit and process flow).

3. How to set up an audit team
Want to keep your audience engaged throughout this course?

  • Recognize the challenges of working in teams.

4. Performing an audit
It’s challenging for some companies to keep up with role requirements for lead auditors. But it’s imperative that these key roles are understood.

Especially, if companies are to achieve the audit success that they wish.

This doesn’t just work for managers. Line staff achieve benefits from this learning, too.

And, discuss that the responsibilities of the lead auditor include:

  • Everything that is associated with the audit.
  • Definition of the scope of the audit.
  • The selection of other team members.
  • Preparation of the plan.
  • Guidance of the preparation process.

  • Discuss the critical role of audit team meetings.

As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak. I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal. One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials. Jeffrey L. Buller, Senior Partner at ATLAS Leadership Training

“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Des Fitzgerald (Oak Innovation) and his courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my clients requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material." GK Lim President, HRD Gateway International

I've developed an alliance with Oak -- a company that has developed a wide assortment of training "modules" that you can download right now. When you download a module you own it forever and have permission to edit it, customize it (logos, etc.) and deliver the module as many times as you like. You receive a Word document, PDF, PowerPoint and comprehensive participant manual and your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back. The modules are designed for trainers, coaches and consultants looking to increase the range of products and services they can offer their clients. Oak content is also ideal for managers and employees looking to extend their knowledge of organizational, management and employee titles.
