Description

The examination leading to a certificate allows you to have your qualification independently confirmed so that you can meet the requirements of customers or suppliers regarding auditor competence.

Your certificate will indicate that as a VDA 6.3 Auditor you are able and authorised to independently conduct process audits both internally and on the premises of your suppliers.

Who should attend?

Employees from QM departments who perform process audits in their own organisation (internally), Employees from QM departments who perform process audits in the supply chain (externally) and External auditors (deployed as service providers).

If you only need to conduct internal or supplier audits you may not need examination day and could choose VDA 6.3 Qualification for Process Auditor (ID381) (training without examination), which provides qualification rather than certification. When taking this decision please check with respective Customer Specific Requirements, your organisations Quality Management System processes and other applicable to your situation requirements.
