Core tools certification training (APQP, FMEA, SPC, MSA AND PPAP)

This course is delivered by Industry Forum

Certification from SMMT, the IATF approved oversight office in the UK

About this course

IATF 16949:2016 mandates the use of automotive core tools including FMEA, SPC and MSA within the framework of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) or project management.

While many companies attempt to implement the tools, many fail to reap the benefits of continual improvement, defect prevention and the reduction in variation and waste. This is often because of a lack of competence in the effective use of the tools and their interactions.

Industry Forum is the only training provider in the UK sanctioned to deliver SMMT Oversight approved core tools training and certification.

This five-day course covers all the core tools using a "learn by doing" teaching approach. After short teach points delegates practice the use of the tools using case studies and delegate exercises.

Certification: Delegates passing the application exam at the end of the course receive certification from SMMT, the IATF approved oversight office in the UK.

Who should attend

This course is designed for Management Representatives, Implementation Teams, Internal Auditors and others who are involved in the auditing or implementation of Advance Product Quality Planning (APQP) activities including Controls Plans, Statistical Process Control (SPC), Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA), and Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA). Familiarity with Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and related Core Tools would be beneficial but not necessary.
