Learn the skills of how to lead and conduct an audit!

It’s hard to fix those elements of a business that just don’t work as they should when you don’t know what to fix.

Those annoying bugs, miss-aligned systems, or tools that don’t quite do the job right can establish themselves overtime as a permanent resident of your business.  They take over your culture leaving you disheartened and the staff disappointed.

This is what quality auditing is about:

  • Understanding how the system should work,
  • Testing to see if it does work, and then
  • Looking for ways to improve it.

An effective manager uses a quality audit as a tool to identify the root causes of performance problems so she can decide how to allocate her resources to fix it.

If you can learn this skill—if you can learn to do a quality audit, then you can find the answers to your problems yourself—before they manifest into a serious performance problem.

Our diploma of quality auditing course will teach you practical audit management and team leadership skills.  Learn to plan, manage, undertake and lead audits in any industry.

You will learn through:

  • Real-life industry case-study scenarios
  • Live on-site audit exercises
  • High-quality learning material
  • Job-ready templates

Our Diploma of Quality Auditing is practical and highly participative.  You won’t sit and listen to PowerPoints, you will do audits.  You will learn auditing practices that are the benchmark in the industry (ISO 19011).


The Diploma of Quality Auditing BSB51615 will be awarded to participants who successfully complete the course and all assessments. This formal Australian qualification is recognised globally and relevant to any industry that uses quality auditing processes.

Q: Do I need to do homework?

A: Yes, there is quite a bit of homework that you need to do each night.  Each class is taught in three parts: lecture, tutorial and then prac.  You need to repeat the prac as homework.  But don’t worry, it’s not impossible, but you will need to dedicate a bit of time in the evening and during the weekend.  Once the course is finished, and provided you completed all of the exercises and tests, there is no more homework: you’re done.
