3-Day AS9100:2016 Rev D & ISO 9001

Internal Auditor Class

With Live Audits

Days: 3 • CEU Hrs: 2.4
Time: 7:30 a.m.- 6:30 p.m. MST
Audience: Beginner to Advanced


This course prepares you to perform internal QMS audits using industry-proven techniques and to apply the proper interpretation of the ISO standard to real-life audit situations. You’ll follow the full audit process including: audit tools and preparation, opening meetings, audit interviews, closing meetings, and reporting.  This is a very practical class that is not “bogged-down” with academic discussions of quality topics that have limited utility for class attendees.
This Internal Audit class makes extensive use of activities and case studies to help you fully understand the requirements of quality system auditing to the AS9100:2016 Rev D standard. Since people “lock” new understanding into long-term memory much better when they apply it, lecture time is held to a minimum providing you time to grasp and then practice your newly acquired skills in simulated real-life audit situations.
