1 - Being a non technical person, is it possible for a person to become an ISO 27001/2013 auditor?

Answer: Yes. ISO 27001 main focus is management practices (e.g., planning, performance evaluation, etc.), so it does not require deeper technical knowledge to perform an audit, only knowledge of basic concepts (e.g., identification, authentication and authorization for access controls).

2 - Any prior experience is required in order to become an auditor?

Answer: To become an internal auditor no prior experience is required, but if you desire to become a lead auditor it's a good thing to have some previous experience in auditing, and if y ou aim to become a certification auditor, definitely you will have to demonstrate audit experience.

3 - Where to start from?

Answer: You can start with an internal auditor course to know the basics of performing an ISO 27001 audit, or go right to an lead auditor course if you want to go deeper and know about planning audit programs and plans.
