AS9100:2016 Internal Auditor Training Course

  • Course Duration: 2 days


AS9100:2016 Rev D requires organisations to audit their Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS) in order to verify conformance with AS9100:2016 requirements and their internally set AQMS requirements. Audit is also seen as one of the most effective tools for managing risk and initiating continual improvement.

This 2-day course gives guidance on establishing a successful internal audit programme and shows how to carry out every stage of an audit effectively. It teaches audit of an AQMS in accordance with best practice.

Attendees are advised to complete the AS9100:2016 Foundation Training Course before attending this course.
