We developed a training class for internal auditors. ( One of our trainers went to lead auditor training so he could train the class (as well as do audits)). We record their attendance on an attendance sheet which then gets entered in our training database. Part of the class is a test at the end to see if they got anything out of it. THis is saved as part of their trianing records.
Also, if you are going TS16949, check the customer specifics
. We had to comply with Ford which requires:
1. trained and evaluated to the standard (hence the test)
2. related core tools (apqp
, etc) we have record of them attending a core tools class
3. Applicable CSR's: (part of class)
4. Automotive process approach to auditing (part of class)
5. the equivalent of 1 day of audits. To meet this, they went with two lead auditors through a series of audits. We created a training record and put in each of their files. We made sure they were listed as auditors on the audit reports, also.
