Who Should Attend: You’re ISO 9001:2015 certified and required to achieve compliance with the latest AS9100 (Rev D) standard. OR, you’re considering adding AS9100 to your ISO certification to enter the lucrative defense contractor market.


Designed for existing and emerging defense contractors, this Shop Talk Workshop provides an informational outline of the AS9100:2016 (Rev.

Your host, Curtis Lopez, is a leading authority on Quality Management Systems with over 30 years of hands-on experience helping manufacturers effectively implement QMS in their organizations. Curt is just the expert you need to help you mentally prepare for what’s to come as you implement or upgrade AS9100 at your company. Curt will be joined by cybersecurity compliance advisor, Mike Spurgeon, who will focus on the heightened cybersecurity requirements inherent in the standard. Whether your goal is to retain your AS9100 (Rev D) certification or to achieve it, this workshop will be invaluable to you.
