AS9115A Lead Auditor Training for Aerospace QMS for Deliverable Software

Course Duration: 5 Days - 8 Hours/day

Omnex is an Exemplar Global Certified TPECS provider for Exemplar Global QM, AU and TL Competency Units. This seminar fully covers the ISO 9001 requirements in addition to the requirements of AS9115A, which is the quality management standard for Deliverable Software. Auditing topics from ISO 19011 such as the auditing process and methodologies, e. g. planning and conducting an audit, writing nonconformity statements, preparing an audit summary and report, and verifying corrective actions are also covered with a focus on AS9115A. Auditing case studies to develop skills for identifying nonconformities will be used.

Aerospace Process Approach Auditing has three main components – Process Auditing, Customer Focus and Leadership Auditing – each of which must follow the requirements laid out in AS9101F. This course will give instruction and guidance on conducting the Process Audit using the PEAR form and Turtle Diagrams, as well as other requirements specific to AS9101F.

Attendees who successfully pass the exams during this course will achieve a Certificate of Attainment for the following competency units:

· Exemplar Global QM

· Exemplar Global AU

· Exemplar Global TL

NOTE: The QM, AU, and TL competency units can only be used for ISO 9001 auditor certification. For those wishing to become IAQG-certified AS9100-series auditors, an additional training module offered through IAQG is required.
