Product Integrity - Training for Everyone

Updated: Jun 14

All employees must be aware of product integrity within the scope of their activities.

There's a misconception that only the Product Safety and Conformity Representative is responsible for fulfilling product integrity-related requirements. But according to the principles of product integrity, all employees are responsible for ensuring the integrity of a product within their scope of activities, and this requires training.


The integrity of a product hinges on whether the product is able to meet legitimate safety expectations and comply with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements. Following industry best practices, German OEMs mandate their suppliers to implement and apply requirements defined in the VDA Volume 'Product Integrity'.


These requirements must be adhered to throughout the entire supply chain, from the carmaker to the material suppliers.


Challenges That Companies Face


Fulfillment of the product integrity requirement is:


  • time-consuming as it requires dedicated effort from employees.

  • requires complicated organization of groups of employees needing to be collected in training rooms

  • is difficult as competent trainers are not easily obtainable

  • is complicated due to different target groups

Why Choose This Course?


  • Easily Accessible: Available to anyone with an internet connection and a computer or smartphone.

  • Different Target Groups: Modular course structure assures the appropriate content on all organisational levels

  • Effectiveness Evaluation: Built-in tests verify understanding amongst trainees.

  • Training Evidence: A certificate is issued upon successful completion.

How Is This Course Structured?

The core concept of this product integrity training is that employees work in different positions within an organisation. Therefore, they need to receive only the subject material related to their role.


For this reason, the 19 submodules are grouped into 4 training types according to the different target groups:


  • Operators

  • Managers

  • Sales

  • Engineering, Quality, Purchasing, and Auditors


The submodules included are:

Each training type includes short videos, animations, and multiple-choice tests that lead to a general understanding of the integrity of a product—relevant to each target group.




How Much Is This Course?


As the main purpose of this course is to provide training for everyone within an organisation, pricing will depend on the number of employees accessing the course.


Corporate pricing varies from 12 to 45 USD per user per year (plus VAT/taxes). The more employees you add, the lower the average price you pay.


  • 1 user = 45USD per year

  • 2-10 users = 39USD per user per year

  • 11-50 users = 32USD per user per year

  • 51-100 users = 24USD per user per year
