SPC Certified Auditors have been granted the authority to provide test sponsors with an attestation
of the compliance of their benchmark implementation and results.
SPC results can only be audited by
individuals who have completed the
SPC's 3-stage auditor certification process.
- Stage I
An initial written exam is taken to establish that the candidate auditor has the
required basic technical and functional knowledge. The exam, if successful, is followed
by an interview to determine the candidate's eligibility to become an apprentice
- Stage II
The apprentice auditor works with a
SPC Certified Auditor to gain hands-on experience
of the benchmark audit process. This stage ends when the mentor auditor is ready
to endorse the apprentice for certification
- Stage III
The qualifications of the apprentice auditor are reviewed by the Steering Committee through
an interview. Following the certification interview, the Steering Committee votes on whether
to certify the candidate as Auditor of the specific benchmark.
Complete details on this process can be found in the SPC Policies.
