Core Tools Training - Instructor led classes (Face to Face and Virtually Delivered) 

IATF 16949 mandates the use of automotive core tools including FMEA, SPC and MSA within the framework of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) or project management. IF is the only training provider in the UK sanctioned to deliver SMMT Oversight approved core tools training and certification.

Delegates can either join the full five day course which covers all the modules, or join each module independently.  

Delegates passing the application exam at the end of the five course receive certification from SMMT, the IATF approved oversight office in the UK, ensuring your organisation can evidence that it meets the competence requirements set out by the IATF.
