Auditor Training

Auditor Qualification Training (AQT) and its annual refresher course, Auditor Development
Training (ADT), is a requirement for all auditors working with GWO certified certification
bodies and training providers. The objective of AQT is to ensure auditors are sufficiently
competent to assess that training delivered by GWO certified training providers is of
consistent quality and in compliance with the relevant GWO standards. By completing AQT
and other requirements (given in GWO’s Requirements for Certification) auditors become
GWO certified.

Auditors wishing to retain GWO certification must, within one year, take a mandatory annual
Auditor Development Training (ADT) refresher course. The focus of this is for participants to
bring personal, real world experience of auditing GWO certified training providers together
with fellow auditors and learn about recent changes in the GWO requirements and

GWO holds AQT & ADT courses regularly with different schedules to meet different time zone needs based on Central European Summer Time (CEST) and Central European Time (CET) according to the time of year.
