With the launch of the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook just around the corner in June 2019, it has quality professionals everywhere asking the same questions: When and where can I enroll in training?
AIAG’s training courses for the new AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook will be provided by Plexus International, a certified global provider for AIAG quality products and services and will be offered to the industry after the official launch of the publication. Any training offered prior to the actual publication launch date may be quite inaccurate as it is based on the first draft version of the document. Supplier efforts to implement or transition to the new AIAG & VDA FMEA methodology should only occur after the new handbook is published.
While registration for open-enrollment AIAG & VDA FMEA training has not yet opened, there are still a few things you can do now to get ready for the launch:
