Course overview

This seminar prepares you to take the exam for qualification as an intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor (Automotive SPICE® v3.1). You will become familiar with the Automotive SPICE® (ASPICE) v3.1 process assessment model, which is generally used for assessments in the automotive development industry.

This seminar offers practical exercises and tips to help you learn to work with individual aspects of assessments. Upon completing and passing the exam, you will be able to independently assess processes according to Automotive SPICE® guidelines under the authority of a Competent Assessor in your own company or at your supplier’s. You will also be able to improve the processes based on the assessment results.

To successfully complete the training, you must actively participate in the course and pass the exam. We recommend doing additional preparatory work at the end of each training day.
