AS9100:2016 Rev D Internal Auditor Training

By the end of this 2-day practical course participants will be able to plan, perform and report the results of internal and supplier audits based on the AS9100:2016 series of standards using a ‘process-based approach’ - in the same way as the Certification Bodies.

Yes - we’ve updated and extended the course to address the new high-level structure of ISO 9001:2015 and the stringent requirements of the AS9100:2016 series of standards.

The course will empower participants to audit against the requirements of AS9100:2016 series, customer and regulatory QMS requirements. and their organization’s own procedures. In addition, they will learn how to assess the ‘active’ management of customer satisfaction, QMS performance and process-level effectiveness (PEARs) - and how to audit the organization's Leadership!

The AS9100:2016 Rev D Internal Auditor Training course is applicable to AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 standards.

Assessment of learning is achieved through structured exercises, real-world audit scenarios and an aerospace Case Study. Students undertake 'face-to-face' individual audit exercises with the tutor(s) in addition to team assignments. The tutors provide feedback and advisement to ensure that best-practice is fully understood in the context of the aerospace/defence industry.
