    Can anyone suggest a good online training course for internal auditing based on 13485:2016?

    Have you had auditor training, previously, Nikki? If so, just go on a course about 13485.

    Let me point out something of significance. When considering auditor training, almost none which are available on-line are accredited by IRCA, Exemplar Global etc. Ever thought why?

    Good point Andy, though their website seems to affiliate with SAE International which gave it initial credibility. I've just emailed SAE.org to see if they accredit these online courses.

    IRCA/BSI courses with suitable dates/location weren't available last time I looked, hence looking further a field for such courses.

    I'm currently facilitating an internal auditor course and I cannot overstate the benefits of having a discussion about the situations the case study (under review in class) presents and the need to coach, guide and evaluate/validate the students, in real time. Something the on-line version is likely devoid of.

    If an organization needs training, particularly for internal audit, they should opt to arrange an on-site type. The role playing or mock audit is at least customized to the organization's operation. More employees can get hands-on experience than getting it online. I've noticed that online is also quite pricey. At US$ 319.95 for just one person, that's Ph₱ 16,824.32 for me.
