Course Overview:

This course is designed to meet the specific needs of your company in fulfilling the IATF 16949 and Customer Specific requirements for competent, knowledgeable, and well trained internal auditors and includes hands-on development of key processes, audit planning, and internal auditing exercises. The course was developed by a former president of a registrar with inputs from certified auditors and portions of this training have been used by multiple registrars for training their auditors to the process approach.

The course is applicable for both new internal auditors as well as current internal auditors with past experience that just want to improve their skills. Based on the ISO19011 Guidance for Quality and Environmental Auditing this course describes internal auditor skill requirements as well as all the steps of an internal audit; from audit planning through closing meetings and follow-ups on corrective actions. Significant attention is given to developing and using a “Process Approach” as required by the standard.

This information is designed to help ISO and IATF 16949 practitioners, management reps, team members, quality, engineers, and internal/lead auditors understand the requirements of the IATF specification and customer specific requirements for these AIAG core tools.

Our approach is to provide you with the most information in the shortest period of time to optimize your time away from the facility. Therefore, the frantic pace of the course is fast and intense in order to cover a lot of valuable material in an extremely limited period of time.  It is recommended that attendees bring an example or two of their PPAP packages so they can compare what they do to what is taught and critiqued.
