Crucial Knowledge offers several courses in each of the AS 91XX series,
including both internal and lead auditor courses.
The buzz in this realm continues to center on revisions and transitions.
The IAQG (International Aerospace Quality Group), continues to tweak the rules for
transitioning from revision B to revision C of AS 91XX, and the old "checklist," ISO 9101, is now out as
revision D. In late January of 2012, the IAQG updated the Supplemental Rules Document (SR001) regarding transition requirements
and consequences for companies not meeting the July 1, 2012 transition target date. See the drift of that update

All of our RABQSA associate instructors are up to speed on recent developments and are teaching to the latest
revisions, and out on-line AS 91XX courses are current as well. Of particular interest is our new on-line "Transitions" course that specifically details the changes to AS 9100 Rev C and pours over the AS 9101D "Checklist" document. This offering includes editable Word documents that satisfy the Forms requirements, including the seven "appendix" forms, NCR, OER, PEAR, QMS Matrix and the audit report forms.
Note about Revision C to AS 9100: Additional Requirements
AS 9100(C) contains some new requirements relative to things such as Risk Management, Process Auditing and
Configuration Management. However, when you are audited your organization needs to know of the additional requirements
that the auditor and your organization must meet. Other requirements are now found in AS 9101(D) which makes mandatory
requirements found in AS 9104, ISO 19011 and ISO 17021. One example is that the organization must now have a minimum of 12 months
of data and analysis on key performance indicators for processes prior to the registration audit. Both the internal
auditor training and lead auditor training addresses these new requirements for the organization outside of the standard
itself. How an organization defines its processes will have a major effect on how the auditors must proceed.
This can impact the cost of the third party audit.
