Certification Refresher Courses

The Washington DC and Maryland Metro Section offers refresher courses for some of the ASQ certification examinations.  See the Certification and Training Page for the offered courses as well as other training resources. 

Certification Examinations - IMPORTANT CHANGES

As of September 1, 2016 exams, ASQ will transitioned to computer-based testing, or CBT, for its exam delivery. Although the application/approval process has not changed, candidates will be required to take an additional step after being approved to schedule their testing appointment with Prometric.

Learn more about these important changes at asq.org/cbt.
