TRAINING

APT has a wide range of tailorable training courses including online to address:

 

  • Manufacturing Readiness Levels (MRLs)

  • Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs)

  • AS6500A Manufacturing Management Standard

  • Product Maturity Metrics (PMMs)

 

To prepare personnel from senior management to practitioner, APT offers training in management and conduct of risk, issue, and opportunity assessments. Practitioner courses are classroom-based with a case study providing an intensive immersion into the application of knowledge, skills, and abilities required to conduct in-depth manufacturing, technology, or program assessments at a prime or sub-contractor facility. We also offer shorter online courses that cover the fundamentals of the assessment tools and techniques.

 

​If your organization has contracts that include requirements for AS6500A, or is planning to implement  the standard as a best practice, APT provides orientation and implementation training with insight gained from APT participation in the AS6500A Standard development and updating.
