Lead Assessor Development Program (LADP)
For over 40 years, organisations have been relying on the NATA Lead Assessor Development Program (LADP) to build the complex set of capabilities, technical knowledge and people skills to conduct successful assessments that deliver results and add value.
Specifically, the LADP is designed to provide Lead Assessors with the quality management, reporting knowledge and stakeholder engagement skills to be able to conduct a professional assessment.
Effective Lead Assessors need to navigate all aspects of an assessment to deliver a successful outcome. Being a professional Lead Assessor requires a combination of in-depth knowledge of the requirements of the relevant Standard and a confident approach to secure trust and respect from both the Technical Assessors and the organisation itself.
“Found the course material very well presented and very useful. I feel it was very helpful and insightful for performing future assessments. Thanks!”

Who should do the course?
Those individuals committed to quality and delivering professional and sustainable outcomes for organisations or other laboratories they assess. This includes existing Lead Assessors seeking to refresh their skills, as well as aspiring Lead Assessors keen to develop the required knowledge and skills.
Those that do the program will return to their organisations with a fresh perspective on how to conduct assessments and a mind-set to lead effectively. They will also have an expanded network of industry assessors from diverse backgrounds and experiences to support their work.
What you will learn
The LADP is a highly interactive experience where participants have the opportunity to be involved in group discussions, exercises and workshop-based activities. To receive recognition as a Lead Assessor, participants will be required to successfully complete an assessment that reviews all program areas covered. The assessment itself is undertaken within the program.
You will learn:
- The strategies and tools needed to plan and conduct effective assessments
- The leadership and team management skills needed to influence and take people and organisations on the assessment journey.
