 Course Outline

With highly interactive and immersive content, assessment activities, case studies and support tools, the OLAT program has been designed in accordance with the guidelines outlined in ISO 19011:2011 (AS/NZS ISO 19011:2011)*; to provide participants with the core skills required to initiate, conduct and report on a management system audit, as well as develop the communication skills required to lead an audit successfully.

The course is broken up into five modules, three content rich modules, bookended by an introduction and a summative module. Each module is then split into several lessons.

*As part of the 6 month licence you will have access to view the Standard online only.

Online learning differs in many ways to traditional classroom learning. Some major points of difference include:
  1. Anytime, anywhere, any place. Learning is convenient and can be delivered on-demand, when and where it is needed, both on-site and off-site
  2. Time reduction. Learning can be delivered as 'just in time' training, reducing the period between the learning and application of the knowledge or skills
  3. Cost effective. Your organisation does not need to pay for travel, accommodation and for your time out of the office
  4. No-risk environment. Online learning environment allows you to safely master skills before applying them in actual situations
  5. Flexible access. Allows you to access and review the lessons you need at times convenient to you. Content can be revisited as often as you desire within the 6 month period
  6. Motivation. Interactive lessons and media elements, such as video, animation and sound, will get you involved more quickly and keep you motivated to continue
  7. Self paced. You are able to complete the course at your own speed. The course is designed to help facilitate you through the content, however there is no face to face facilitator and activities are designed to be for self-interaction rather than with other participants
