  • Containment, cause analysis, and corrective action;
  • Configuration, identification, and traceability;
  • Critical items and key characteristics;
  • Design and development;
  • External provider approval and control;
  • Human factors;
  • Foreign object damage/debris (FOD) prevention program;
  • Material handling and preservation of products;
  • Nonconforming material management;
  • Operational risk management;
  • Special processes, including National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap);
  • Sampling inspection or testing.
  • ASD regulatory requirements;
  • Safety management systems (SMS);
  • Product safety;
  • Production processes and product verification/validation; and
  • Prevention of counterfeit parts;

Who Should Attend?

This course is for auditors that require training as outlined in 9104/3 Table 1 — Requirement for 9100 and 9120 (EN 9100/9120) evidence of industry knowledge (see 4.4.1), for auditor authentication and entry onto the OASIS database as an Aerospace Experienced Auditor (AEA).

This course will provide evidence of Continuing Professional Development for existing Aerospace Auditors.


There are no specific prerequisites, however the course is aimed at Auditors who have completed the AATT (2023) and don’t have the necessary industry experience.
