    Hi

    Currently you can only become a BS7799 auditor because ISO17799 is a
    guideline and not a standard. To become an auditor you need to complete an
    accredited BS7799 auditor course.

    In the UK I only know of 2 training organisations that provide this and they
    are BSI and LRQA. If you are outside the UK I would suggest you get in touch
    with your local standards authority, for example in the UK it would be UKAS
    (United Kingdom Accreditation Service), who should be able to put in touch
    with training companies that are accredited to run BS7799 auditor courses.

    Once you are qualified you can audit companies to this standard but cannot
    provide them with certification unless you work for a certification body,
    such as BSI.

    Hope this is helpful
