Automotive Standards Workshop Set for April 18 & 20 at RCC

ASHEBORO (March 17, 2017)

Randolph Community College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education will offer a two-day “IATF 16949 Standard Workshop” in April for organizations in the automotive industry who need to transition to this new standard.

IATF 16949:2016 is the new Quality Management System (QMS) standard for organizations in the automotive industry. This new standard will supersede and replace the current ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard. All organizations currently certified to ISO/TS 16949:2009 will need to successfully transition by Sept. 14, 2018.

This overview provides participants with a basic understanding of the meaning and scope of the new IATF 16949 of Quality Standards and acquaints them with guidelines to help them assess the appropriateness and value of certification and registration in their own organization. Ten standards in the new IATF 16949 series will be discussed along with current procedures for registration, who is registered in the United States, and the probable costs and expectations of third party auditing services. This course also examines the actions to address risks and opportunities.

The workshop will be held from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, April 18 and 20, in Room 223 of the Continuing Education and Industrial Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost of the workshop is $150.
