Formed in October 1996. Its purpose is to promote a system of education and training in quality audit principles, concepts and practice to enhance the skills and competence of quality audit professionals for the advancement of continuous quality improvements in business, industry and the community.
The Audit SIG provides a venue for developing an understanding of various auditing skills and techniques. Speakers provide insight into audit methodologies that include subjects like preparation, evidence collection and people skills. From this participants are able to broaden their knowledge of auditing and leave with techniques that can be applied both for internal and external audits.
