Ready for the new IATF 16949? With our combined IATF 16949 Lead Auditor training course, you will be. With its move from ISO to a new controlling organization, IATF 16949 has become even more demanding than its predecessor ISO/TS16949 with demands for more risk planning, expanded top management roles and more documentation, among other requirements.

The QMII ISO 9001 Lead Auditor with IATF 16949 training is a 5-day course that probes the requirements and implementation of IATF 16949:2016 so you can conduct efficient audits. You will learn the principles of auditing and how to apply ISO 9001 guidance to create and implement successful auditing programs to satisfy the expanded IATF 16949 requirements, and beyond.
