Duration & format

An Batalas approved certificate for those who successfully complete all elements of the course, including written and practical skills assessment.

Format of course

The ISO TS 16949 standard is a very detailed framework document, therefore we try to make the course as exciting as possible.

To explain the requirements of ISO TS 16949 we use a mixture of tutor led sessions and interactive exercises.

To teach the tools and techniques of how to audit your quality management system we use tutor led sessions and a comprehensive case study to simulate live audit scenarios. This case study approach means that you will actually conduct role play audits during the course to enable your skills to be developed.

Prior knowledge

If you already have a basic understanding of the requirements of ISO TS 16949 then that is great. But we do understand that the majority of delegates attending this course are doing so because they want to learn what it all means, therefore all we ask is that you complete a short pre-course exercise before you attend the course (this is sent to you via email 4 weeks before the course starts).
