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.

TEC's course is unique because we also train and examine the Certification Body auditors (AATT 2016 course). Consequently you will be learning how to audit using the AS9101:2016 requirements as well as the ISO 19011:2018 guidance.

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. Specific reference is made to AS9100:2016 clause 10.2 Nonconformity and corrective action and the root cause codes now being used by the Certification Bodies.

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.
