On August 1, 2017, Method Park becomes exclusive training provider for the Quality Management Center of the German Association of the Automotive Industry – VDA QMC – which provides training on Automotive SPICE®. During the VDA Automotive SYS conference in Berlin, Method Park and VDA QMC signed a partnership agreement.
This agreement establishes Method Park as an exclusive cooperation partner of VDA QMC, for giving intacs™ assessor training (“intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor” and “intacs™ Certified Competent Assessor”) and holding introduction courses on this topic. The VDA QMC keeps responsibility for the course organization and implementation. Interested participants can still register via the VDA QMC website.
Automotive SPICE® has been part of the training and consulting portfolio of Method Park for many years. Method Park belongs to the international market leaders for Automotive SPICE® assessments and assessor training. While the Asian market particularly grew in importance, Method Park encourages the internationalization of standards.
Bernd Sechser, Principal Consultant at Method Park, responsible for Automotive SPICE®, looks forward to cooperating with VDA QMC: “Software development departments of large German automotive suppliers have been our customers for many years. In this exclusive training partnership with VDA QMC, we can also transfer our practically-oriented know-how and years of course expertise to our course participants of VDA QMC.”
