AS9100 Root Cause Correction Course

This AS9100 root cause correction course will help develop the core skills you and your organisation require to identify and document problems. Moreover, you will learn a series of industry recognised methodologies to correct these problems.

Supply chain risk management is driver of new supplier development philosophies. It is important to understand what is expected of your organisation once something goes wrong.

Your tutor will guide you through the use of key methodologies to find and correct root cause. These skills are coveted throughout the industry and are highly transferable.


This course will help you to understand how to identify and correct root cause of problems.

It will help increase problem solving cycle times which in turn will help drive down the cost and consequence of quality escapes, and line stop issues.

Personally, you will be able to demonstrate that you have in depth knowledge of root cause problem solving, and how to demonstrate it. These skills are highly valued throughout the aerospace supply chain.

What you will study

Develop an in-depth knowledge of aerospace quality management systems (AQMS) problem solving methodologies. Appropriately trained practitioners will bring added value to the their organisation. Organisations today do not just sell a product or service locally. In the rapid development of a global market-place, having a set of common auditing protocols is critical to facilitating organisational improvement.

Delegates will develop the knowledge to:

  • Explain the importance of appropriate root cause analysis and corrective action
  • Recognize industry typical expectations for responding to problems
  • Determine the objective of each step of the 8 Disciplines methodology, as defined in AS13000
  • Identify and select problem solving tools to facilitate such investigations
  • Be an effective member of a root cause analysis and corrective action team
  • Select problem solving tools based on the scale and nature of problems experienced within your organisation
  • Apply the steps of the 8 Disciplines methodology in an appropriate manner to facilitate problem solving activities within your organisation

Whilst attending our AS9100 Requirements Course delegates will gain specific knowledge in;

  • Problem Definition,
  • 5Y,
  • Ishikawa / Fishbone,
  • 8D,
  • A3,
  • Cause & effect approaches,
  • 1D1W1M (Contain, Correct, Prevent) and
  • Risk & Opportunity management.

Teaching support

Our tutors are highly experienced aerospace practitioners. They all hold graduate degrees, and are IAQG qualified Auditors. These qualifications are to 9100 Revision D.

Your tutor should be able to answer any relevant questions about the course. They will also be able to comment on best practice, and what is happening in the industry. However, they are there to teach you, and they aren’t allowed to consult on complex problems during the teaching days. This is simply because it absorbs too much time, and can jeopardise finishing the course.


This course is assessed through activities, and engagement with the course material. There is no pass and fail, but if you want to get the most out of the course you will need to engage with the material, activities, and group work.

There is a certificate issued at the end of the course to prove that the course has been attended.

Entry requirements

This is a technical course and so it is very important that your english is not only good conversationally, but also that you can interpret and understand the technical elements of the course.

An understanding of what is meant by Problem Definition, Root Cause Analysis, and Root Cause Corrective Action will help you immerse yourself into the cause material with ease.

Ask your leadership what type of problem solving techniques are currently employed by your organisation, and learn how they are used. This will help you ask better questions during the course, and explore how you can make your problem solving methodologies better.

Preparatory work

Think about how your organisation improves, and who is involved in such processes. If you already have a problem solving process, take a look at how it executes its non-conformance programme. Consider which problem solving techniques would work in your particular organisation.


If you have any special requirements please call us on 01902 472 523, or 07958 133357. Alternatively, text 07958 133 357, or use the form located on the Course Registration tab.

We will do our very best to ensure that everyone’s needs are met.

Study materials

All of our delegates are supplied with a copy of the course material, along with the tutors notes.

A loan copy of the standard will be supplied and this must be returned to your tutor at the end of the course.

Computing requirements

There are no requirements for any of our delegates to need access to a computer during this course.

In fact we prefer you not to bring laptops, or tablets into the class room. This helps to focus both your tutor and your delegates on the materials.

There are plenty of opportunities to check telephone messages, and emails during the days. Such as coffee breaks and at the start of break out sessions. We just ask that you be respectful to the tutor and the other delegates.

Things to bring with you

Our tutors will supply all that you need, including materials, pens, and notebooks.

Some people prefer to bring their own pens and notebooks. This is fine.

In some cases we may ask you to provide whiteboards, presentation equipment and flip charts. However, we will arrange this before hand, and we can provide anything necessary to make the course go smoothly.

Course registration

Our courses are mainly delivered on-site as this gives far more relevance to your organisation, and allows more appropriate discussion about the course material in your own context.

Please send your details through to us using the form below and we will contact you about your specific needs.

If you would prefer, simply call our office number and one of our dedicated staff will answer your questions.


This is a 2 day course that is expected to run 0900 – 1600 on each day.
