ATOL Mentoring Program

It’s not just about the training. When you complete your training and have your qualification it’s not always THE END of your learning is it? In fact, it should be THE BEGINNING!

What Does Success Look Like to You?

I know this because I've done the training myself and I've got the certificate, but you know what? I've learned the most after this from other people, talking to other people, asking them what they do, asking them what it looks like, asking them how to do it, picking their brains, learning from their experience.

And you don't always get this completely during training whether it's online or in the classroom - it's still very limited. You might get this support to a certain level while you are studying, however as soon as you walk out that door or click on your last assessment, it's all gone. Where's the support, where's the network?

I know for me personally the biggest support for me to move forward in my career has been the people that I've met along. I was able to ask questions - I still do it now, 25 years later, there's still stuff I need to learn. There's still stuff I need to ask. And I have that group of people that I can go to and ask those questions and learn. And sometimes they're huge light bulb moments.

What’s the solution for you?

This is where Auditor Training Online comes in. We recognized this need and have introduced a program called AMP – ATOL Mentoring Program.

The program provides this support during your training, after your training, before your training, at any stage that you need it.

How does AMP work?

Weekly Group Zoom – every week I'm going to have a group zoom call on a Thursday at 11.30 am (Brisbane time). This is where everyone in the program can join and ask your questions.

You can ask me questions about auditing or consulting processes, how and what to do during audits.

You can ask me questions about building your management system if you have a quality, environment or OH&S system.

I will be available for that hour for you to ask whatever you need. And I will be able to guide you in the right direction.

If you can’t make the live Group zoom it will be recorded and you will be able to access it afterwards and watch it back in your own time.

If you have questions that you would like answered on the group zoom and can’t make it you can just let us know beforehand and I can cover it as a topic for you, no problems.

And then on top of that, If you need some support or need to ask a question between those group Zooms, we'll have a closed Facebook group where you can go on and ask any question at any time and I can help you by responding, but it's not just me that will be able to respond. There'll be other program members too that could help.

Who can join AMP?

Anyone can join AMP!

You don't actually have to be a student with us.

You don't have to have had done your training with us.

It can be for anyone - anyone that's even just interested in what's going on and asking some questions before they study or even for anyone that is in the middle of building their career or their system.

I know how much this support has helped me in the past and now so we're going to be there for you as well.

If you have any questions about AMP you can contact us because we’re real people. And most importantly the first month is FREE so you can try us out!
