Training Improves the Effectiveness of Your QMS

Internal Auditing is the best tool for evaluating the effectiveness of your IATF 16949 QMS. Plus, using untrained quality auditors is like making measurements with an out-of-calibration instrument. Get the most from your investment into your quality program by using auditors trained in the new requirements who understand the criteria and the methods. After attending this class, your updated auditors will know how to gauge the effectiveness of your IATF Quality program and communicate results clearly and objectively.

There is no reason to fear 2nd and 3rd party audits if you have an effective quality program with competent assessors. If you are thoroughly evaluating your quality system with objective reviews, nothing the external registrars say or find will come as a surprise to you. But an audit program is only as strong as its weakest link. Are your process auditors properly trained on the new requirements found in the updated IATF Standard and on the multiple facets of conducting a successful quality review? The Bizmanualz IATF 16949:2016 Transition training class helps ensure you get the most from your Audit program.

Who Should Attend?

This class will be valuable for:

  • Top management who will need to understand the changes to ensure a successful transition and ensure that the organization receives value from the system after the transition.
  • Anyone who will be planning or implementing an IATF 16949:2016 transition for their organization.
  • Current ISO/TS 16949:2009 internal auditors who are required to be familiar with the new standard to provide audit support during and after the transition.

We keep our classes small and we use a seminar-style presentation with an interactive format to discuss particular auditing approaches that meet your needs.

Interactive, Seminar Style Quality Training

Small class sizes using some PowerPoint slides maximizes learning and retention. No sitting in dark rooms staring at the screen while an instructor drones on. No sitting in big hotel ballrooms, lost in a large group with little or no opportunity to ask questions or to network with other quality managers and auditors here.

With our intimate classes, we allow time for group discussions to ensure you get answers to your questions. Our discussions are interspersed with exercises that are fun as well as a great learning experience that you can take back to your company. Group discussions and interactions are especially emphasized for greater internalization of the topics covered.

Take the mystery out of the changes to the IATF Standard by taking this special training event. Everyone wants to be part of a successful organization. Connecting the dots between compliance and success can be an important motivator for your team.
