IAQG-Sanctioned Aerospace Auditor Transition Training to AS9110

The Aerospace Auditor Transition Training is the course which has been mandated and sanctioned by the IAQG for all current AAs, AEAs, and AIEAs to meet the new training requirement for AS9110 Revision C. This course is applicable and beneficial to internal auditors, Implementation teams, OEMs, and non aerospace auditors looking to become Aerospace auditors. The course is process-based to add value for those implementation members who desire to learn how to audit for effectiveness as well as compliance.

Guideline Governing The Aerospace Auditor Transition Training Course

Plexus International’s “IAQG-Sanctioned Aerospace Auditor Transition Training to AS9110” is focused on the training and development of the auditor candidates. Advisement, correction, discussion, information transfer and learning are the focus of the training session. Additionally, trainer evaluations of the auditor candidates’ performance and understanding are directed toward improving the candidates’ performance and understanding. Trainers do not make final pass/fail determinations during the training, but they collect performance data that is used as an input to make pass/fail determinations with regard to candidates’ performance and understanding. Final evaluation of the candidates is the result of online examinations and continual evaluations during the training session.
