TRULY FOUNDATIONAL AS 9100 LEAD AUDITOR TRAINING. An effective aerospace quality management system is not optional; it is essential. Start here to build a robust, ever-improving audit program for ensuring AS9100 Rev. D conformity.

QMII’s AS 9100 Lead Auditor Training course is an in-depth course that provides the skills to manage first, second and third party AS9100 audits. You will learn the requirements of AS9100 Rev. D and how they relate to your aerospace quality management system. Even though AS9100 is used as the model for teaching systems and audit, this course enables students to develop and apply auditing skills using any applicable management system standard.

As an aerospace supplier, maintaining market share typically requires a current AS9100 series certification. But there is a difference between meeting this requirement and using the standard to maximize competitive strength and strategically run and grow your business. QMII has created an AS 9100 Lead Auditor training with the goal of teaching not only the discipline of audit management, but how to exquisitely integrate the standard’s vision into your business development program.

In our AS9100 Lead Auditor Training course, you will learn the skills to conduct and lead first, second and third party audits, as well as process and system audits to assess conformity to AS9100:2016. Participants will be able to:

  • Interpret the requirements of AS9100 Revision D*
  • Understand additional aerospace requirements including AS9101 and AS9104
  • Recognize AS9101 process-based auditing model and required documents
  • Identify IAQG sector scheme requirements
