It has been a very busy start to 2019 for Tom Townsend, the MD and course writer at TPT.  Tom has been working hard to develop a number of new courses to be added to our extensive portfolio.

The latest course to be launched is Aerospace Product Quality Planning (APQP) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) based on AS/EN 9145:2018. The course was designed and written to reflect customer demand and the release of the latest standard.

The course focuses on the tools, procedures and reporting requirements specified in AS/EN 9145:2018. Covering the critical steps in the APQP and PPAP, associated project documentation and Process Flow Charts, FMEA and Control Plans. This course is aimed at anyone who is involved in the introduction of new product. Whilst there are no formal prerequisites to attend, a knowledge of AS/EN 9100 is beneficial. A full overview of the course can be found here.
