AIAG's Industry Restart Package for Quality

To help support the global automotive industry through all phases of its recovery, AIAG has made our full suite of in-language Quality Core Tools assessments, select eLearning, and eDocuments free to the industry through the end of 2020.

The Industry Restart Package for Quality helps position Quality professionals for the recovery by ensuring that everyone has critical and basic industry knowledge. Beginning with the Core Tools Self-Assessment, participants can benchmark their competency in the Core Tools against over 17,000 assessments completed globally, to date. Once participants have gained a better understanding of where additional knowledge may be required to meet industry benchmarks, they can then use select Core Tools eLearning – in FMEA, APQP/PPAP, MSA and SPC – and full versions of the Core Tools eDocuments to increase their knowledge and prepare for additional training.

Start Here:

To get access to the program, the first step is to take the Core Tools Self-Assessment (CTSA) – Taken by over 17,000 Quality professionals globally to date, the assessments tests your basic competency in the automotive quality Core Tools, APQP/PPAP, FMEA, MSA and SPC. See where your scores are in relationship to the industry average to determine which of the eLearning and eDocuments will benefit you the most.

Upon completion of the CTSA, you'll receive a results email to benchmark you to the industry, as well as links and instructions to access the free eLearning and eDocuments in the program. It's that simple!

Below lists all of the included eLearning, eDocuments, and industry resources that are included in the program. Once you've reviewed them, retake the CTSA to see how you've improved!
