Resource: LEADING NADCAP EXPERTS
Expert Resource is the leading provider of Nadcap consulting services.
100% of our clients (hundreds) pass their
first attempt at certification. Most of our consultants are
spread throughout the United States, England, and China, but we have
also helped companies in over 10 other countries. Headquartered
in California, we will go anywhere to help you.
Our clients are very diversified in size,
special process expertise. We have met the needs of the largest prime
contractors (ex: Goodrich, BASF, Rolls-Royce, Boeing) to very small job
shops. Our prices are highly competitive and our consultants are very
personable. We specialize in every area of Nadcap and we
guarantee our work.
Nadcap consultants must be (1) technical experts
in their fields (ex: welding, NDT, Heat Treating, Chemical Processing,
etc.) and (2) experienced experts with the Nadcap requirements, which
change frequently. Most of our competitors are ISO 9000
consultants with some vague understanding of Nadcap and very little
experience in the specific field. Be careful not to use someone
who claims to be able to simply "interpret any standard". Nadcap
requirements are very technical and your consultant should be a
technical expert with decades of experience.
The majority of our Nadcap consultants are Nadcap
Lead Auditors, which means they are the authorities. They work
part-time for PRI (the Nadcap audit certification company) and
part-time for Expert Resource. They are trained by PRI (the
authority approved by all the Prime Aerospace Contractors) and have
hundreds of audits. Be sure you are relying on the best because
they will utimately affect not only your certification success but more
importantly they will be modifying how your company
operates. It is critical. Don't leave your company in
the hands of a novice. Our previous 30 Nadcap audits (of various
clients with various special processes) resulted in 2 or less minor
findings per audit, some of which were flawless audits. Does your
Nadcap consultant have a proven success record?
