Lead auditors are qualified based on experience in the food industry, education, training and auditing experience. A persons path to becoming a Lead Auditor will vary depending on these factors.
The first step is to have experience in the food industry in a role with food safety responsibilities. That experience, combined with a registered Lead Auditor Course (RABQSA or IRCA 40 hour course) will get you started on your lead auditor qualifications. You will also need a certain amount of auditing experience. The links below take you to documents that explain this in more detail.
We do not offer the lead auditor course, but we do have a list of Lead Auditor Courses. Talking to a certification body about what requirements they have for their auditors will also help you identify your approach to becoming a lead auditor.Search Lead Assessor courses.
