Dear all, I see ASQ offers an ISO 13485 Internal Auditor Course and Certification which is certified by Exemplar Global. May I ask who the coordinator for that course is, since I see all scheduled sessions are full for this year. Also for the certification, is there an exam at the end of the 3 day course? What is the format of the exam and how difficult is it? I passed the CQA exam back in April but I know this 13485 Internal Auditor certification process is different from CQA. Thank you!!

I checked with our public courses team. Here is their reply.

The ISO 13485 course is delivered by our partner, Dekra (AQS). We are in the process of finalizing the 2023 course calendar during the business planning season. Our first offering for 13485 is tentatively set for March. If that doesn’t work, Dekra does host public courses as well.

There is a competency exam at the end of the course, but please note that does not certify the student. The student applies to get certified through a registrar such as Exemplar Global

The pass rate 90%+ and exams are multiple choice.

Dekra’s courses are pathway to getting certified with Exemplar Global. Once they take the course and pass the exam, they would follow Exemplar’s process to getting the certification.

I hope this helps!
