e-Learning: IATF 16949 Foundation Training Course

Programme overview

The aim of this IATF 16949 Foundation Training e-Course is to provide students who have a basic knowledge/experience of quality management with an understanding of the management systems approach and the requirements of IATF 16949:2016, and to provide a basis for students who wish to go on to complete Internal/Lead Auditor Training courses.
