EASA Compliant Advanced Quality Auditing Recurrent OPS & CAW – 2 Days

Focus on:

  • All Business Areas including Operational, Maintenance & CAMO

Being able to support an in-depth understanding of non-conformities in your organisation is part of the mission. Being able to clearly explain the exposure to your organisations business area owners and post holders is an essential attribute of an effective Quality Assurance Auditor.

Our Detailed Auditing Techniques Training Masterclass’ techniques may be applied in any audit situation including management system processes, determining the effectiveness of existing or client quality & safety audit systems.

The training is extremely effective and is suitable for both regulatory authorities as well as industry. Have you ever wondered how it is that accident investigators understand all the shortfalls and exposures – but after an accident or incident. It is possible to audit at this level before an accident.

This course is highly interactive with all delegates having the opportunity to fully engage to consider best practice techniques related to both auditing techniques and compliance oversight methodology.
