Certificate of Recognition (COR) internal auditor training – Virtual session being piloted in March 2020!
One of the first steps to becoming COR certified is to identify an internal champion who will lead the process for your organization and become a knowledgeable resource about COR. The COR internal auditor is an employee of an organization who completes the auditor training for the purpose of conducting internal COR maintenance audits and developing the program. This individual should be familiar with all aspects of your safety management system. Depending on the size and complexity of your operation, you may decide that more than one internal auditor is needed, to share the COR auditing responsibilities.
We recognize that it isn’t always easy to take time away from your business to attend COR internal auditor training, which is why we are piloting our first ever virtual training session!
Be part of our pilot on March 13, 2020. In this special session, we bring the training to you virtually, via a live webinar, with group interaction, independent case study work and a scheduled one-on-one consultancy session with our facilitator, to help you prepare for your student audit.
The COR internal auditor training consists of approximately 15 hours of training; 7.5 hours online, self-paced learning, followed by a half day (4 hour) live virtual session on March 13, some homework/independent case study work, and a separate consultation (by ‘phone) with our expert facilitator, to make sure you’re ready for your student audit.
Please allocate the whole day on March 13, 2020, (9:00am to 5:00pm PST) to join the virtual session, complete your independent case study exercises (off-line) and attend your one-on-one telephone consultation with the facilitator.
The training covers the following:
- an overview of the COR program;
- an in-depth look at the individual COR audit elements;
- how to prepare for a student audit;
- how to conduct an audit using the go2HR COR audit tool: documentation, observation and interview techniques;
- how to prepare a COR audit submission: scoring audit questions and writing notes;
- post-audit activities and follow up: what happens next;
- how to maintain your status as a COR internal auditor.
The online self-paced training portion must be completed prior to attending the virtual classroom session. This preparation is designed to give all students a common base of knowledge concerning the COR audit process.
You will need access to a desktop or laptop with a reliable internet connection and a quiet desk/office space, where you are free from interruption, in order to attend the virtual training session. A camera is recommended (but not essential), to maximize group engagement during the session. You should have speakers or a headset with clear audio. Soft copies of the training materials will be provided to you and these may be downloaded and saved locally. You will be asked to type notes within some of the Word documents provided, as part of your independent case study work, and send the saved versions of these to your facilitator, for review, via email.
