BSB51615 – Diploma of Quality Auditing @ CTE City Campus
Jul 19 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Nationally recognised Auditing qualification

The BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing is a nationally recognised qualification designed to develop skills in areas such as participating in and conducting quality audits, report audit findings, preparing audit documentation and managing audit teams. This program is designed for team leaders, internal auditors and quality auditors.

CTE delivers the Diploma of Quality Auditing in an intensive format. In this format, participants attend facilitated training over 5 non-consecutive days, complete assessment activities in the class (in the form of a guided audit) and are then required to complete assessment material (audits) in their own time. The sixth day is a half day and has been developed as a supported tutorial session. Participants will be required to conduct two quality audits in their own time, over 12 months, to successfully complete the Diploma. Due to the intensive nature of the course, it is strongly recommended that participants already have knowledge of quality auditing frameworks and processes. Assessment will require application of the knowledge and skills, so participants will benefit most if they are in auditing roles, or have auditing experience within an organisation.

Duration: 6 days, split into 2 sessions + an additional half day supported tutorial session
Times: 9.00am – 4.30pm
Investment: Full course fee $2,950 per person includes course materials and assessment fees. This course is exempt from GST.

RPL for BSB51607 Diploma of Quality Auditing $1,500

Recognition of Prior Learning is an appropriate process for those team leaders, internal auditors and quality auditors who are participating in and conducting quality audits, report audit findings, prepare audit documentation and manage audit teams. RPL submissions consist of three forms of evidence; Responses to Questions, Workplace Documents, Third Party Report and candidates will be interviewed by their assessor.
