Answer: To become certified as ISO 27001 Lead Auditor you need first to attend a 40h course offered by an accredited provider and then take the exam (ISO itself does not provide certifications). Some organizations that offer such courses are:
- BSI: https://www.bsigroup.com/en-MY/isoiec27001-informationsecurity-management/training-courses-for-iso27001/
- Bureau Veritas: https://www.bureauveritastraining.com/us/iso-27001-training

Through the above links you can choose a country and search for a suitable location from where you can attend the course. After passing the exam you will need to gain audit experience through performing audits for a certification body (this in fact is the most complicated part of the process).

First of all, I apologize for the late answer. Regarding your question, yes, the 40 hours course is compulsory to take the exam, but there is no experience requirement to take it.

The experience is required only when you want to start working as a certification auditor. In such case you start by participating as an observer, and after some audit hours you will participate more actively in the audit, until the point you will have all responsibilities of a lead auditor.
