WARRENDALE, Pa., March 1, 2016 - SAE-ITC, an affiliate of SAE International, announces that it has finalized the transfer of the aerospace auditor and training provider activities from Exemplar Global, an Australian-based firm.

Probitas Authentication is approved by the AAQG-RMC to authenticate AQMS auditors and training providers in accordance with the aerospace certification scheme requirements.

“We are extremely enthused about the opportunity to increase our value to the aerospace auditor and training provider communities by assuming responsibility for this new population, Kevin J. Perry, EdD, Director of Probitas Authentication, said. “Probitas Authentication will continue its commitment to top notch customer service by focusing on aerospace activities, maintaining a robust online application and account platform, and providing responsive staff support.”
