Based on the current Aviation, Space and Defense requirements of AS9100D, this course engages participants in an in-depth review of the AS9100D standard and the tools to effectively conduct first, second, and third-party party audits to AS9100D. Through simulation case study activities, participants will apply and audit the requirements of AS9100D using auditing techniques as referenced by ISO 19011:2018 and AS9101F.
