IATF 16949:2016 places an increased emphasis on first and second-party auditor qualification, and this exclusive 5-day training program is the highest level of auditor training available to automotive suppliers. The course is designed to prepare first and second-party auditors to meet the requirements of IATF 16949:2016 and customer requirements of FCA, Ford Motor Co., and General Motors Co. This is the only IATF 16949:2016 training that combines the AIAG Supplier Auditor Certification with the ISO 9001:2015 Lead Auditor Training. A final examination is included at the end of the course.
