Certificate of Recognition (COR) Internal Auditor Training – Virtual Session – Coming Soon!
One of the first steps to becoming COR certified is to identify an internal champion who will lead the process for your organization and become a knowledgeable resource about COR. The COR internal auditor is an employee of an organization who completes the auditor training for the purpose of conducting internal COR maintenance audits and developing the program. This individual should be familiar with all aspects of your safety management system. Depending on the size and complexity of your operation, you may decide that more than one internal auditor is needed, to share the COR auditing responsibilities.
Be part of the virtual session on [TBD]. In this session, we bring the training to you via a live webinar, with group interaction, breakaway team work and a scheduled one-on-one consultancy session with our facilitator, to help you prepare for your student audit.
The COR internal auditor training consists of approximately 13 hours of training; 7.5 hours online, self-paced learning, followed by a 5 hour live virtual session on [TBD], and a separate virtual consultation with our expert facilitator, to make sure you’re ready for your student audit.
Please allocate the whole day on [TBD] (9:00am to 5:00pm PST) to join the virtual session, and attend your one-on-one telephone consultation with the facilitator.
The training covers the following:
- an overview of the COR program;
- an in-depth look at the individual COR audit elements;
- how to prepare for a student audit;
- how to conduct an audit using the go2HR COR audit tool: documentation, observation and interview techniques;
- how to prepare a COR audit submission: scoring audit questions and writing notes;
- post-audit activities and follow up: what happens next;
- how to maintain your status as a COR internal auditor.
The online self-paced training portion must be completed prior to attending the virtual classroom session. This preparation is designed to give all students a common base of knowledge concerning the COR audit process.
You will need access to a desktop or laptop with a reliable internet connection and a quiet desk/office space, where you are free from interruption, in order to attend the virtual training session. A camera is recommended (but not essential), to maximize group engagement during the session. You should have speakers or a headset with clear audio. Soft copies of the training materials will be provided to you and these may be downloaded and saved locally.

Once a COR Internal Auditor is certified by go2HR, the certification is valid for three years.
To be eligible for re-approval of certification after the three-year period, all auditors are required to perform two Maintenance Audits and complete at least seven hours of safety – or audit-related education and training, as outlined in the COR Policies and Procedures Manual. Throughout the year, go2HR offers a number of online training (e.g. OHS Program Fundamentals), webinars (e.g. OHS Webinars), and in-person training and events (e.g. OHS Roundtables and the OHS Summit). Participation in these education and training initiatives will count towards the seven-hour requirement. Auditors may also apply in writing to go2HR to have relevant training and education provided by other agencies applied toward their seven-hour requirement. It is an auditor’s responsibility to complete the two Maintenance Audits and seven hours of relevant education and training and to report these to go2HR using the Annual Internal Auditor Declaration Form.
