IATF 16949:2016 Product Auditor Training

Course Duration: 3 Days - 8 Hours/day

Although the ISO 9001 requirements have been removed from IATF 16949:2016 Automotive Quality Management System requirements and are published as a separate ISO standard, IATF 16949 is not a stand-alone standard and must be used in conjunction with ISO 9001, so Omnex is continuing to offer courses that cover both the ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016 requirements.

This three-day course was developed to cover all additional Product Auditors requirements of both the ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016 standards for Product Auditors.

The three-day Product Auditor Course was designed to provide the competencies required of Product Auditors including Blue Print Reading, GD&T, and understanding and using gages.
