Gold Standard Auditor Training - Hand Hygiene


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 and Gold Standard Auditors. The new framework and supporting resources will be available in 2023. The Commission will provide further information on the status of this project on the Commission’s website in July 2022.

New South Wales and Victoria currently have arrangements for training GSAs for public health service organisations. Information about GSA workshops in those states can be obtained by contacting the Jurisdictional Coordinator for each of those states.

There are no arrangements for other states and territories or the private sector at present. There are currently nearly 1,300 GSAs nationally who can provide General Auditor (GA) training. These GSAs are encouraged to provide GA training to staff from their organisation, or their networks, and other organisations, where possible.
