Course ID AS91ATT
Format Classroom

Auditors, managers, and quality personnel will learn about specific differences between the AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2009 requirements and AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2016 requirements.

Discover what concepts will be more difficult to audit, including new requirements with fewer procedures, and identify the implications of the reduced requirements.

Gain an understanding of how auditors prepare for and conduct audits to AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2016, how the revised 2016 standard will impact existing approaches to auditing, and review AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2016 official auditing forms.

Learn the specific differences between the previous revisions of AS9001/AS9110/AS9120 and AS9001/AS9110.AS9120 requirements from an auditor’s perspective.

This course will emphasize the concepts that will be difficult to audit, including new requirements that are less prescriptive, i.e., requiring fewer procedures, QMS-based, risk-based thinking in attention to operational risk management, knowledge management, product safety, counterfeit parts prevention, and many others.

Additional Notes

Because both AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2016 The Path Forward and AS9100/AS9110/AS9120:2016 Auditor Transition Training deal with changes contained in the 2016 revision of the standard, there is inevitable overlap in course content. While many may choose to take both sessions, some choose one or the other making this overlapping content necessary.
