Dear Hitendra,

I doubt whether there is any course titled "Warehouse Auditing".

I conduct various training programmes in the field of purchase and inventory management. One of the courses is "Warehouse Management". Among other things, I cover modules on measures of performance, fire and safety audit, security audit etc. You may organise my training for the staffs of your warehouse.

If you wish to know more about my training activities, then you may click the following links and download my profile and programme details:

There may not be an audit course exclusively for logistics / ware housing. There is an ISO standard ISO 28000 for supply chain security management which includes your area of interest.
The ISO 28000 - Supply Chain Security Management Systems establishes a security system that will protect people, goods, infrastructure, equipment and transportation against security incidents and other potentially devastating situations. It specifies the requirements to establish, implement, maintain, improve and audit a security management system. The series comprises of
ISO 28000:2007
ISO 28001:2007
ISO 28002:2011
ISO 28003:2007
ISO 28004:2007
ISO 28005-2:2011
You can take Lead assessor Course in ISO 28000 standard (which is one week course) conducted by ISO 28000 certifying bodies. With this, you are qualified to conduct audit on all aspects of supply chain security management.

Auditing is generalised term and not related to any specific industry. Audit is a tool which is based on standard guidelines use to have internal control on way to do business.

Dear Mr Moiz Bastawalla,
You say that "audit is a generalised term and not related to any specific industry". However, this statement itself is quite a big generalisation.
As far as warehouses are concerned, there are warehouses of all hues. How can you compare a warehouse that stores carpets with grains? Cement warehouse is still different. Therefore, we need to have product-specific audit as well. We need to have supply chain specific audit as well.
Take a normal stores in the some factory. Check my comments for some past post for the general audit:
Points mentioned in the above links are general. However, we need to be specific to our area of business as well.
For Hitendra: - You may organise my training for the staffs of your warehouse personnel. You will get all the points in the audit.
