Course Overview: 

This programme covers the requirements of Rolls-Royce aerospace for suppliers to be able to approve First Article Inspection submissions without additional customer oversight checks on the documentation.

The two-day course combines teaching the core First Article Inspection documents, and building on the AS9102 standard to define the Rolls-Royce specific requirements. Training includes discussion and case study content to embed learning.

The exam day focuses on examining the readiness of delegates to review First Article Inspection submissions through knowledge assessment and capability activities.

Please note:

Unless you have received a letter from Rolls-Royce stating that you do not need the Competency Assessment for FAIR Delegation, then you must also select the exam day when completing your booking. Unless you have successfully passed the First Article Inspection (FAIR) Approver exams, you will not be certified to approve First Article Inspection submissions without additional customer oversight checks on the documentation.

This course is for nominated individuals within supplier organisations who have been specifically named by Rolls-Royce aerospace within a letter of invitation.

Certification: 

Delegates who attend the course and pass both the knowledge and practical capability assessments will received a uniquely numbered certificate of achievement.
