The USAP emphasizes the importance of consistent and rigorous auditor selection, training and certification in order to ensure and maintain the highest standards of competency in the conduct of audits.


Auditor training and certification activities are conducted with the objective of establishing a roster of auditors representing as wide a geographical base as possible, and in sufficient numbers, to carry out the established schedule of audits.


With more than 130 auditors currently on the USAP roster there are no plans for additional USAP-CMA auditor training courses in 2015. However, beginning in 2016 ICAO intends to conduct regular courses to ensure there are sufficient certified auditors to meet the needs of the programme. Details of such training courses will be posted on this website.
