Seminar Content

Omnex offers auditor certification for various ISO, industry and sector management system standards. Omnex automotive auditor certifications address ISO 19011:2018, Exemplar Global, IRCA and VDA auditor requirements and guidelines.

Our auditor course teach the process audit approach as it applies to management systems and VDA (6.3) Process Audit requirements. Our VDA certified Subject Matter Expert (SME)-led courses enable auditors to understand and competently perform system and process audits. In addition to Auditor competency certification Omnex provides training for Product Integrity (PSCR), FMEA, PPAP and MSA to VDA standards.

VDA standards are published by the Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V., a German automobile trade association and are a supplier requirement for some of their members and their automotive suppliers.

Who Should Attend

Courses are specifically designed for Quality System internal, supplier and lead auditors, Supplier Quality/Quality Assurance Managers, Product Safety, Conformity and Integrity personnel and VDA 6.3 Implementation Team Members, Management Representatives or any auditor who may wish to improve their competence to conduct audits using the process approach required by the International Accreditation Forum and others.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Two years of automotive industry experience with some management system or process audit experience is highly recommended. Knowledge of industry specific management system standards is recommended.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a Auditor seminar manual with case studies and a guide for conducting a process/product audits to VDA. An exam is also administered.

Omnex is not presently a VDA licensee. If the VDA auditor “card” is required by a customer for their suppliers’ auditors, attendees should confirm with a licensed provider if they can take the official exam after this course. Omnex auditor certification is the technical equivalent of the VDA (6.3) training. Many customers do not require the VDA auditor credential.
