VDA 6.3:2023 Process Auditor Qualification (ID 381) with Examination (ID 382)
This training provides you with the basics for performing process audits according to VDA 6.3, considering the process-oriented approach and customer-specific requirements for comprehensive application in the automotive industry.
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:
This is the full four day course plus one day examination. Upon successful completion of this course and the exam, and in conjunction with VDAs prerequisites, this course leads to certification and database entry for VDA Certified Process Auditor.
Admission to the exam is only granted after successful review of the application.
Please only apply for this training if you meet the pre-requisites to do so. This includes the requirement for at least 2 days of Core Tools Training undertaken from 2019 onwards.
Applications will only be accepted once we receive the required documentation.
Benefits and Learning Objectives:
This training alternates between technical presentations, practical exercises, and case studies in order to support the transfer of what has been learned into your own working practice. Special emphasis is placed on opportunities to exchange experiences.
We have been delivering significant and measurable performance improvements for leading global manufacturers for more than 25 years and believe there is no one size fits all approach to driving competitiveness across the industry. Toyota, Rolls Royce and Electrolux are among the brands who have tapped into our expertise to ensure they remain on top in their own fiercely competitive markets.
In order to strengthen the services we provide to the UK's automotive quality management specialists and further underpin the competitiveness of UK manufacturers, SMMT Industry Forum has created SMMT QMD, its new Quality Management Division.
SMMT QMD was launched at the inaugural Automotive Quality Management Systems Conference in Birmingham in November 2018 and aims to ensure that the UK automotive industry plays an active role in the development and governance of national and international automotive standards.
SMMT QMD will provide a community of practice to directly support UK quality professionals, ensuring standards are effectively implemented and improving competitive performance. As such, SMMT QMD will now provide the following services:
We don’t employ “trainers”, rather a team of experienced industry experts who are able to apply their knowledge to your business
We have been helping organisations like yours for over 25 years to deliver and maintain sustainable improvement
