This course, consisting of multiple modules, is available for anyone to view free of charge. It emphasizes application of R2 requirements, evaluating records and evidence, and current industry trends.
This course–and passing the refresher test–is MANDATORY for the following groups to satisfy the continuing education requirements specified in the R2 Code of practices:
- R2 Lead auditors (Note: new auditors who complete SERI’s auditor course in 2018, must also take the refresher training and test before they begin auditing to R2.)
- Certifying Body (CB) R2 Certificate Decision Makers
- CB Program Managers (if different from Certificate Decisions makers/auditors)
- Also mandatory for consultants who wish to maintain their listing in the Consultant Directory on the SERI website. If a consultant fails to complete the annual required training by December 31, their name will be removed from SERI’s website Directory of Consultants. A consultant will be given time until March 31st of the following year to be relisted on the SERI website provided they review the annual refresher modules and successfully pass the test. The fee for each take of the test after the December 31st deadline will be $250. If a consultant fails to pass the test by March 31st, they will have to repeat the SERI auditor course to re-establish credentials.

Cost for taking the refresher test is $100/participant. The multiple-choice test will be offered to those individuals who maintain active R2 credentials and have passed the SERI Lead Auditor course. Continuing Education Certificates will only be issued to those who pass the test with a score of 75% or better. One re-take is allowed if participant fails at first attempt. Deadline for passing refresher test is December 31, 2018.
NOTE: This annual refresher training is not a substitute for taking the SERI auditor course. New auditors must first take the 3-day Auditor Training and pass the final exam before they are eligible to audit for R2.
