AS9110C Internal Auditor Training for Aviation Maintenance Organizations

Course Duration: 4 Days - 8 Hours/day

Omnex is an Exemplar Global Certified TPECS provider for Exemplar Global QM and AU Competency Units. This seminar fully covers the ISO 9001 requirements in addition to the requirements of AS9110C, which is the quality management standard for Aviation Maintenance organizations. 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 AS9110C. Auditing case studies to develop skills for identifying nonconformities will be used. This is a 3 day class with exams on the 4th day.

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.
