Becoming an Auditor is a great way to give back to the industry you work in. The auditing prism is a way to look at organizations (your own or others) and their systems and processes to see if it works, is robust and able to give the right out puts. Often, it can prompt questions on how you are doing things in our own organization, especially when planning a new initiative or project.

If you have an inquiring mind, good experience in your operational field, and a desire for understanding of safety and quality systems then a respected auditing training course could be your next step. This, along with some auditing experience means you are then ready to undertake the BARS Auditor training. Every year our office conducts at least three scheduled BARS Auditor Accreditation Courses in different locations around the world. During the life of the Program there have been 26 of these courses with over 200 participants.

We pride ourselves on having some of the highest minimum entry level criteria for the Auditors wishing to join the BARS Program. This is one of the factors that makes the Program so robust, along with the annual training provided, feedback and regular performance reviews.

Our BARS Auditors have had to work in some very challenging environments. Despite these challenges, our Auditors have achieved great work in their audits, contributions to the Standard and auditing effectiveness. The end result is being able to see the audited organization grow, develop and strengthen their internal systems and become a stable, effective and safe organization through a structured Audit Program.

So give some thought to becoming an Auditor and even a BARS Auditor, it is a great way to contribute to improving aviation safety.
