The programme also offers an ideal opportunity for customers to work closely with, and further develop, their supply chains - providing a mutually beneficial and rewarding outcome for all parties. In conjunction with TEC, the 'host' customer may either choose to host the events their own site(s) or at TEC's prestigious corporate training venue. All levels and specialisms are catered for, and the programme can be customized as required. Empowerment training is augmented by on-site mentoring for the suppliers involved – provided by your own teams or in combination with TEC staff.

On-site course

In-company courses may be organised at any time and are extremely cost-effective on a ‘cost-per-student’ basis. The host company is responsible for the venue costs.

We can accommodate up to 10 (maximum) delegates per session.

The programme is aimed at all levels and specialisms in the company. In fact, any individual who will be involved in the design, development, implementation and operation of the AS9100:2016 series quality management system, AS9145:2016 (APQP & PPAP) and SC21 deployment – and routine usage of the related tools and techniques.

Increasingly, the IAQG (International Aerospace Quality Group) and the aerospace/defence Primes and Tier-1’s are promoting higher quality and delivery requirements, and ever increasing and demanding standards of sustained performance, by their supply chains. The launch of AS9100:2016 Rev D standard brings many new aspects into play, and is an example of the changing aerospace landscape. In particular, aerospace/defence APQP & PPAP (AS9145:2016). The aerospace supply chain is global, bringing many new competitors and opportunities.

The essential ‘people competencies’ in the core aerospace/defence tools will ensure that supplier companies will consistently perform at their best to survive and thrive in the global aerospace supply chain.

Because TEC are an IAQG Training Provider, a CQI & IRCA Approved Training Partner and an SC21 Strategic Partner, our training courses are recognised and accepted internationally.

A key element of the programme is to simplify procedures and actively manage the effectiveness and performance of QMS processes. For example, working with clients in the UK and USA hundreds of narrative procedures have been eliminated and replaced by 4 to 8 key processes, with each process visually mapped onto just four pages! This has resulted in a more efficient and streamlined business model and a user-friendly QMS - embracing the 'process approach' and APQP & PPAP.
