IATF 16949 training covers the reference materials published by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) that specify the requirements for effective IATF 16949 systems.

What should an Auditor learn?


Current IATF 16949 Courses

In the automotive supply chain, integration of management systems between customers and suppliers is key. The focus is to ensure advanced product quality planning (APQP) is well coordinated so product design and development cycles across large groups of suppliers work in harmony. When developing vehicles or vehicle sub-assemblies, coordinating these efforts requires management systems that work well and can easily communicate with one another.

QMII’s IATF 16949 training is run in conjunction with the ISO 9001 Lead Auditor training. Students completing the IATF 16949 training walk away with the knowledge needed to implement a system conforming to IATF 16949 to gain IATF 16949 certification. In addition they learn to conduct audits to the standard to ensure conformity and add value.

Benefits of our training include:

  • Small class sizes resulting in high levels of student-to-instructor, and student-to-student interaction and post class-interaction
  • An effective training structure, that balances information volume, detail and comprehension
  • Varied content delivery approaches and examples to accommodate different learning styles
  • Tests after each lecture to gauge to the level of understanding of the course materials. (Being competency based, the course does not have a final exam, but rather modular tests combined with workshops to assess competency.)
  • A volume of course locations (for in person training), times and dates from which to choose
  • Field experienced instructors, who themselves have participated in many IATF 16949 audits and consulting assignments before entering the classroom
  • Constantly updated material, to reflect IATF 16949 standard revisions, and also its changing uses, methods of application and best practices
  • Competitive course pricing and a range of potential discounts for more flexible pricing (if/when students can vary their schedules to take advantage of early, late and volume-based registrations)
  • QMII offers a variety of training courses to help ensure your organization is profiting the most from meeting the requirements of IATF 16949

Course Delivery Options

Meet the Automotive Industry requirements

IATF 16949 requires organizations to develop well-defined processes from evolving design concepts through customer acceptance of production parts. As systems evolve, organizations analyze design and production risks earlier in the design cycle to reduce development costs, ultimately passing these cost savings to customers. Process capabilities must be analyzed and understood with the intention of maintaining minimum industry standards and driving improvement. Processes must be controlled using statistical methods. Measurement uncertainty must be quantified to ensure effective process and product monitoring. Simply, the automotive industry has established requirements for organizations in the automotive supply chain that ensure system consistency from top to bottom. The agreed management system standard is IATF 16949 certification implemented in coordination with ISO 9001:2015.

These methods and system conformity are only effectively implemented through development and use of process-based management systems. IATF 16949 training covers the reference materials published by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) that specify the requirements for effective IATF 16949 systems.
