For these reasons, we have integrated our accredited auditor requirements with the Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA), which ensures auditor proficiency through the learning, testing, and credentialing of social compliance auditors. All of our auditors are APSCA accredited under one of its two proficiency levels: Associate Social Compliance Auditor (ASCA) and Certified Social Compliance Auditor (CSCA).
WRAP training requirements:
To be accredited to perform WRAP audits as a lead auditor, an auditor must be employed full-time by a WRAP accredited monitoring firm. Additionally, they must also be an APSCA CSCA and have completed WRAP’s “Two-Day Bridge Training” course.

This two-day course bridges the divide between being an APSCA CSCA and a WRAP-accredited lead auditor. It introduces our program, including an overview of the audit process and relevant documentation. It also breaks down WRAP’s 12 Principles as they relate to distinct audit requirements.
