Reporting with Root Cause & Corrective Action Training
ER provides a
one-day session of on-site
training for non-conformance reporting with root cause analysis and
corrective action training (NCR-RCCA). Lack of proper NCR-RCCA training
is the area of Nadcap compliance in which most companies will fail,
adding unforeseen costs to the program and build months of frustration.
To prevent Nadcap audit failures and build on the Nadcap Merit Program
(reducing auditing costs), ER highly recommends that all Top
Management, Quality Personnel, and Nadcap-related process personnel
attend this one-day training session. Each session will allow a maximum
of 20 trainees. Nadcap has a very stringent and particular format for
NCR-RCCA. Nadcap requires that teams of employees work together on each
NCR-RCCA found during the PRI audit. Therefore, teams should be trained
together, have a common approach and unified expectations.

|Nadcap Testimonials for Expert Resource
"Our choice to use Expert Resource for developing an effective Quality
Management System was instrumental in attaining a Nadcap accreditation.
The experience and industry background that the consultant brought to our company made all the difference in the world."
-- Elite Metal Finishing, LLC
helped us customize and implement a multi-certified Quality Management
System. In addition to ER's efficient implementation process, the end
results were astounding. The process was a smooth transition and easily
maintainable. With the help of ER's specialized consultants, our
initial certification was achieved with zero findings. Throughout
many AS9100 assessments, Nadcap re-certificaitons, and customer audits,
the total number of findings have been far and few between."
