Global 8D (G8D) Problem Solving Training & Consultancy

Global 8D Training

Global 8D (G8D) problem solving training and consultancy uses ‘Root Cause Analysis (RCA)’ in developing permanent corrective actions for problems. Our course has assisted clients in meeting the NADCAP ‘Root Cause Corrective Action (RCCA)’ training requirements.

The course takes a tutor led learning-though-doing workshop approach and can be delivered over 1 or 2 days with the 2 day course allowing more time for using the tools to work through some of your real process problems. We have public, virtual and in-house training course options.
