Certified Advanced Product Quality Planning Expert (CAPQPE)

Training and Certification for Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP). Limited time offer of 50% off retail price. Five Star Rated.

The Core Tools are expected to be used for compliance to IATF 16949. There are five basic Core Tools detailed in separate guideline handbooks, including Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP). The other Core Tools are:

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)
Statistical Process Control (SPC)
Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)

This is the certificate that will be awarded to you upon completion of course:APQP Training Course Objectives
