This one-day workshop has been developed to provide participants with an overview of the scope and nature of the Lead Auditor Exam and a review of the knowledge base required by a lead auditor (Section III NCA 4000/NQA-1). This overview is combined with practical experience in researching and developing adequate responses to sample questions that are typical of the questions asked in the written examination.

Who Should Attend?

The test examination will be useful to those with a strong knowledge of Code Requirements and Code Philosophy who require practical guidance to meet the expectations for successful completion of the ASME Section III Lead Auditor Exam.


This workshop is NOT an explanation of Code Requirements and Code Philosophy. It is expected that all participants have obtained this knowledge base through other training. The workshop is designed to assist participants preparing to write the Lead Auditor Exam by reviewing typical exam questions and by providing examples on the preparation of appropriate answers. It will provide participants with this opportunity in a workshop environment.
