Intro to Risk Management and Root Cause Analysis
This workshop is an Exemplar Global certified training course that provides participants with an overview of the principles of risk management and root cause analysis.  Individual and group exercises provide hands-on practice to help familiarize with the different methods used for risk management and root cause analysis.  This workshop examines how to effectively use FMEA, heat maps, and Bowtie diagrams as well as root cause analysis tools that include scatter diagrams, Fishbone diagrams, and Why tree analysis vs. 5 Whys.   Participants will learn the strengths as well as the weaknesses of each of these strategies. An Exemplar Global graduate certification is issued after successful completion of training.   

O&G Auditor Certification Training
This 3 ½ day certification course addresses areas of Auditor competency that are essential for improving the effectiveness of internal, supplier quality, and certification audits. Unlike the ISO 9001:2015 Auditor certification, which is not industry specific, the Exemplar Global O&G Auditor certification is intended for those conducting QMS, product and services audits in the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. Understanding the requirements of ISO 29001:2020 as well as other related industry quality systems standards that include API Q1 and API Q2 is a core part of this course.  The competent Auditor must be familiar with the risks associated with the manufacture and supply of products, materials, and services intended for use in the petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries. Participants that complete a 2 hour written examination and an Exemplar Global Work Style Analysis are awarded a Graduate certification. This certification and the course certificate of achievement satisfy Exemplar Global training requirements for O&G Auditor certification.
