A CQI and IRCA Certified Internal QMS Auditor training course based on IATF 16949:2016 – Course ID: 1676

Develop the skills to undertake internal audits of a quality management system, including IATF 16949 automotive requirements, on our CQI and IRCA certified IATF 16949 Internal Auditor training course.

This 2-day course course includes interactive workshops covering subjects such as audit process, nonconformity writing, and corrective action.

Students will leave the course with the skills to objectively apply the requirements and principles of both ISO 9001 and IATF 16949:2016 to conducting internal audits.

This course is suitable for anyone interested in internal auditing with reference to IATF 16949, including:

  • those responsible for undertaking internal audits
  • managers, whose departments will be subject to these audits, to help them appreciate the benefits that structured audits and the resulting corrective action can bring
  • individuals who want to become registered auditors
  • those who needs to demonstrate compliance with IATF 16949

The course builds upon delegates’ prior knowledge of IATF 16949. For those with little or no prior knowledge of IATF 16949 we recommend attending our Understanding IATF 16949 training course (delivered the day before the Internal Auditor course). We offer a discount of £100 discount when booking these courses together. Please contact us if you wish to take advantage of this offer.
