API Q2 Implementation

API Q2 1st Edition Implementation Training Course


The course is essentially two days of hands-on training on the API Q2 1st Ed Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Service Supply Organizations for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries, plus one day of training in auditing techniques.

This course has been designed by Mireaux Management Solutions based on years of experience implementing API Q2 Quality Management Systems, auditing Quality Management Systems, and training on API Q2.  This course focuses on two areas:

  • Background and application of API Q2 1st Edition.
  • In depth overview of each clause of the API Q2 1st Edition Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Manufacturing Organizations for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries, explaining what the specification says, what the specification means, how to implement the specification in the real world, and how to audit it.

The course is filled with practical exercises and real application examples, to help participants develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the implementation of a world-class Quality Management System.
