About the course:

Upon completion of this class, you'll be ready for real-life audits. In fact, we strongly suggest that you capitalize on your successful classroom experience by having an audit planned for as soon as you return to your facility.

We use an actual QMS documentation set that was designed by professional auditors. This helps students understand how to ask questions, listen to the answers, and follow the audit/evidence trail. The case study system helps students to learn and aids in the development of process auditing skills. 

Crafted just for the automotive industry, this course also includes OEM customer requirements and how-to-audit the Core Quality Tools.  An in depth look at the TS with emphasis on the interdependence of customer requirements and the core tools, makes this class stand "head and shoulders" above so called competitive classes. The course is offered frequently in cities around the country and is an affordable also as an onsite session.  If considering this class as an onsite session, consider adding a hands-on day of coaching (available for a nominal fee). Our pro's can help your auditors to audit your system.

As always and with all QAI classes, students are taught by professional and internationally certified auditors.  QAI's instructors for the automotive industry classes receive special industry specific training several times each year.  Our students get experts that are current with this fast-paced, always improving industry. You'll get a trainer that is more than just familiar with the automotive industry;  you'll get energetic, enthusiastic trainers that are "in the know" about the industry's QMS requirements.
