Knowledge to be gained.

This SQMC-certified AS 9100 Awareness course covers the basic concepts, principles, and requirements of the AS 9100 standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS) in the aerospace, aviation, and defence industries.

Participants will gain an understanding of the sector-specific requirements of the standard, including risk-based thinking, competency and training, supply chain management, and asset integrity management.

They will also learn about the importance of effective documentation and record-keeping, as well as the benefits of continual improvement and customer satisfaction.

Your team will learn:

  • The fundamentals of AS 9100:2016 ("Revision D").
  • The Requirements of a Quality Management System  (QMS) for suppliers to the aviation, aeronautics, and defence markets, using AS 9100 as your yardstick.
  • The ‘Seven Management Principles’ upon which AS 9100 is based.
  • Deming's ‘Plan – Do – Check – Act’ (PDCA) cycle, used to maintain an aerospace QMS.
  • The 'process approach'.
  • The application of the AS 9100 clauses, contextualising them to real-life scenarios for your employees.
AS 9100 and your company.

AS 9100 is more stringent than ISO 9001 in several ways, as it includes additional requirements that are specific to the aerospace industry. Therefore, it's crucial that your staff understand and appreciate:

The additional requirements for product safety and reliability.

AS 9100 comprises additional requirements to ensure that products are safe and reliable, which are critical in the aerospace industry where safety is of utmost importance.

Additional requirements for traceability and configuration management. 

The standard includes requirements for traceability and configuration management to ensure that products are manufactured and maintained in accordance with specific parameters and that any changes to the product are properly managed and documented.

Additional requirements for risk management.

Risk management is critical in the aerospace industry where errors and faults can have significant and tragic consequences.

Additional requirements for supplier management.

AS 9100 delves deeper into requirements for supplier management to ensure that suppliers are qualified and capable of meeting the company's requirements.

In summary...

AS 9100 Certification requires a more detailed and prescriptive application than ISO 9001, to ensure that organisations in the aerospace industry establish and maintain effective quality management systems that meet customer and regulatory requirements, and that products are safe, reliable, and meet specific requirements.

Next steps: progression beyond this course.

The AS 9100 Awareness course makes a tremendous launchpad for a career as a Quality Engineer.
