Why does one become an auditor? What makes a good auditor? These are some of the questions that one may have in mind when it comes to auditing. “ISO auditors can’t look at everything. As a result, they’ve been trained to look for key indicators that reflect the overarching quality standards for an entire organization. Optimizing for these indicators will ensure that your audit goes smoothly and that you’ve presented the best version of your quality management system.” (Jette, 2022).
QMII welcomes any alumni to share their experiences with us whether it be auditing, training, or consulting. We take pride in your dedication to learning and appreciate it when you share to help others enhance their careers. As QMII alumni, your input is appreciated, and we encourage you to come to us whenever you need to. Recently, one of our alumni provided feedback on his experience as an auditor with a positive perspective on auditing and the key factors involved with the profession.
“Auditors are skilled in interviewing, observing, researching, writing a lead, and organizing audits, which skills an auditor does not learn in a day, a week, a month, or a year. It takes years of auditing to learn the tricks of the trade of auditing. Auditor efforts create a unified code of best practices to improve standards and create a new efficiency in the auditing process and operations. Furthermore, operating under the philosophy that auditors are mature, responsible, and capable of self-management and setting standards involving auditing requisites.”
At QMII our goal is to train personnel to become competent auditors. While with the passage of time an auditor may hone their skill, they are ready to hit the ground running once completing QMII’s Lead Auditor Training. Auditees should not fear an audit, and well-prepared auditors will make the audit process easier, better, and faster for everyone. The goal of an audit is to focus on providing valuable information about where your system is working well and where there are risks and opportunities for improvement. Auditors should not only focus on finding errors and mistakes but on how the system functions to meet your requirements and seek the level of effectiveness of the system.
