intacs™ Certified Competent Assessor (Automotive SPICE®)
- 5 Days
This course provides the knowledge required to take on the tasks of a Competent Assessor for an assessment in accordance with ISO/IEC 15504 resp. ISO/IEC 330xx. It extends the experience gained in the training for becoming a Provisional Assessor as well as practical assessment experience.
