This website has published articles in the past about how to become a Lead Auditor in the PS-Prep program. We have also held a webinar on the subject in summer 2010. We recently came across this posting from ANAB and it reminded us that “Buyer Beware” is as much a valid statement today as it was 6 months ago.
The job market is tight and we know that many BCM practitioners are looking for a way to advance their careers. However, at this point in time, there is no training class that has been approved which can certify you as a Lead Auditor in the PS-Prep program. In fact ANAB goes on to state that any certifying body that wishes to apply to become part of the PS-Prep program….cannot employ anyone who has received a certification , if that certification was acquired prior to the class itself being approved.
If you really want to be a lead auditor….please don’t waste your money, wait until there is official training approved by ANAB available.

If applicable, please pass this information along to those PS-Prep strategy planning and implementation team members in your organization.
