TEC's tutors are all experienced in the creation and auditing of FAIRs with many years’ experience in the aerospace industry.
The ‘hands-on’ FAIR workshops require that the organization make available several FAIRs for the class to audit. Wherever possible the FAIRs should include the organization’s own and FAIRs received from their suppliers.
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.
