Course Information

As a guiding force for other tools such as FMEA, MSA, and SPC, Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) stands out as one of the most high-level Core Tools. If you're looking to master APQP, it's not enough to simply understand it, you also need to learn how to implement it, which is exactly what this course was designed to do. 


Providing the most in-depth application-based training for APQP, this three-day course is the perfect fit for practitioners leading APQP endeavors in their organizations, team members providing the elements of APQP, and auditors that want to know exactly what an effective APQP deployment consists of.


With the understanding that APQP can be challenging - much like program management in general - this course will include:


  • Both managerial and technical aspects to ensure you not only walk away with the proper technical expertise, but are also able to manage the programs to control time, cost, and budget.
  • Case studies that allow you to analyze and evaluate other APQP programs to determine how yours measures up. 
  • Various other techniques successful practitioners have used over the years, providing you with practical techniques in addition to definitions for the tool. 


If you're in search of the most comprehensive APQP training available, and seeking competence above and beyond conformance, this class is tailor-made for you. 

  • Program managers responsible for managing or implementing APQP projects 
  • Engineering and support staff that work inside of APQP projects and want to know what is expected
  • Leaders who want to see the bigger picture of APQP to effectively manage and deliver PPAP
  • Auditors looking to audit the complete APQP process from start to finish
