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.
