Common Training for DPRV Personnel

C1501 (Multiple Dates and Locations)

SAE International Classroom Seminar

In the aerospace industry, delegated product release is a process whereby a supplier has been provided the authority to act on behalf of a delegating organization to verify and release products without additional oversight from that delegating organization. Currently, each of these delegating organizations manages and conducts a unique training program for individuals responsible for their product release overcheck process. For suppliers producing products for multiple delegating organizations, each must then manage the multiple training requirements. The delegating organizations, recognizing there is commonality among the various training programs, have come together to consolidate their training into a single, common training standard.

This three-day course will provide product release delegates with a comprehensive and standardized set of requirements for the self-release process. This course is designed to cover the key elements of the process along with a detailed explanation of product-release overcheck activities. Beginning with the role and responsibility of the product release delegate and its importance to flight safety, the instructors will guide participants through the various product release activities including a review of documentation, visual inspection, dimensional overcheck, part marking and serialization, and release documentation requirements. In addition to attending and participating in the full three days, attendees must take and pass a comprehensive learning assessment to successfully complete this course.

When the AS13001: Common Training for DPRV Personnel standard is imposed from a delegating organization as a requirement, this foundations course is recognized as satisfying the respective customer training requirement for initial self-release delegate qualification. This course also aligns with the requirements of the AS9117: Delegated Product Release Verification standard.

In addition to attending and participating in the full three day training, attendees must take and pass a comprehensive learning assessment to successfully complete this course and earn their initial DPRV qualification. This credential is conferred and tracked by Probitas Authentication, a third-party body that authenticates Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS) auditors and training programs against specific aerospace requirements. Upon successful completion of this course and while the qualification remains valid, a product release delegate's personal qualification is recognized by all participating delegating organizations and is transferable between supplier organizations. The initial qualification is valid for a duration of three years, at which time the individual must then complete the necessary recertification training and learning assessment in order to maintain the qualification.

This DPRV training and certificate program—part of SAE International’s Professional Development Portfolio—was developed and expanded to more than 575 classes offered in eight languages in 40 countries. To date, more than 8,250 professionals have completed this course.

Completing DPRV training can be beneficial in positioning suppliers to obtain business with top tier suppliers or OEMs but is not in any way a guarantee.
