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

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

With this transition comes significant changes that will improve the exam certification experience. The changes include increase in annual exam administrations, increase in testing locations and quicker test results.

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