This is a half-day, live, web-based training course introduction to understanding and the process of obtaining an FAA Conformity Inspection, commonly referred to FAA Forms 8100-1 and 8130-3. Each area of the curriculum is presented at a level appropriate for a person that may be new to the subject.  If you are an experienced quality manager this seminar is probably not for you.

Drake web-based half-day training is intended to introduce the subjects to attendees. The training is conducted totally online with live instructors. The scheduling of the web training is East Coast 12 PM – 4 PM and West Coast 9 AM – 1 PM. This schedule allows attendees to be available at work for a half day and in training for a half day.
