IATF 16949:2016 Refresher Training

Course Duration: 1 Day

Due to the constantly evolving Automotive industry, training certificates issued by Omnex for Understanding and Auditing IATF 16949:2016 have expiration dates. This helps ensure those that hold an Omnex training certificate are knowledgeable in the current Automotive QMS landscape.

In order to support those whose certificates are expiring, Omnex is offering a one-day refresher course with a final exam that can be used to update your Omnex training certificate. The refresher focuses on the latest set of IATF 16949 Sanctioned Interpretations. As some of these SIs have placed a greater focus on topics such as embedded software and cybersecurity, standards and methodologies such as Automotive SPICE and ISO/SAE 21434 that were not in widespread use or may not even have existed when IATF 16949:2016 was first developed, are also discussed.

A comprehensive final exam is provided which covers both new topics discussed in this refresher as well as key concepts from the original pre-requisite course. A pass rate of 80% or better is required to update your certificate. One retake opportunity will be made available. Failure to achieve 80% will require a repeat of the original Understanding and Auditing course in order to update your certificate.
