General auditor training


General auditor training is only able to be conducted by a validated Gold Standard Auditor. General auditors are not able to train others.

The Commission is currently in the final stages of consultation with the states and territories, and the private sector, to develop a new auditor training framework for General Auditors and Gold Standard Auditors. The new framework and supporting resources will be available by the end of April 2023. The Commission will continue to provide information on the status of this project on this website.

General auditor training includes the following mandatory sessions:

  • Hand Hygiene Auditor Preworkshop Online Learning Module
  • The 5 Moments of HH powerpoint
  • How to Audit powerpoint
  • Identifying the Moments 
  • A practical ward session
  • Written Quiz

The General Auditor Training Resources are available via the NHHI Learning Management System. Gold Standard Auditors can access these resources to conduct general auditor training. Click on Help/Documents in the top right corner, then scroll down the new Domain Documents window.
