Auditor Qualification Audits

For auditor certification in 2021, auditor candidates will be required to:

  1. complete auditor training (covering all required content),
  2. pass the full auditor exam (covering all required content), and
  3. successfully complete a qualifying audit based on both documentation and interviews (conducted remotely).

Auditors holding limited status (after completing a doc-only qualification audit in 2020), must conduct a second qualification audit or relinquish their auditor status.  The second audit must include both documentation and interviews (conducted remotely), and be completed in 2021 or in 2022 (for internal auditors).

  • Prior to conducting their second qualifying audit, auditors must complete focused training (covering interviews, observations and use of the audit tool) from their CP.

Notes on qualification audits:

  • Remote observations, while not required, may be conducted if practical.

The minimum standard may be exceeded on an individual basis, if the auditor and employer agree that on-site interviews and/or observations can be conducted safety.

Archived Announcements

All COR (Large Employer) maintenance, re-certification, and certification audits will be limited to documentation Only!

Starting March 19, 2020, all COR audits must be completed using DOCUMENTS only. This removes the obligation for auditors to tour worksites and interview workers. Auditors will continue to be required to verify documented practices. This practice is approved to run until December 31, 2020.

COR AUDITS must be completed through AuditSoft!

All AMTA COR audits must be completed within a new application. The AuditSoft tool is approved by Partnerships and will accept documentation only audits.


The documentation only process for any external auditors conducting a SECOR audit will also apply.  Any questions that are based on interview or observation verification must be marked as NOT APPLICABLE (N/A).

  • The current SECOR audit tool will still be accepted.
