ISO/TS 16949 (ISO 9001:2008) Requirements from A to Z

This class is for auditors, supervisors and managers who want to 1) learn about ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9001 requirements, 2) interpret the standard, 3) apply requirements to their work situation. The class is based on a portion of an ISO/TS 16949 Certified Lead Auditor class. This class provides on-line access to ISO 9000 (vocabulary standard) and over 20 downloadable handouts such as: an ISO/TS 16949 checklist (TS 16949 note that checklists should be used when auditing), a Student Textbook, Study Tips, a before class assessment and after class objectives, and so on. Students must apply what they learned by completion of an assignment for marking by an instructor. Students must provide their own copy of the TS 16949 standard (purchase from ASQ or borrow from a friend). The class consists of a series of lessons, illustrations, diagrams, interactive exercises and quizzes. Successful completion of the class will result in a certificate for 20 contact hours (2.0CEU's). The subscription period for the class is 180 days (plus one free 30-day subscription extension, if needed).
