ASQ Certifications


ASQ certification is a formal recognition by ASQ that an individual has demonstrated a proficiency within, and comprehension of, a specific body of knowledge. ASQ’s first certification exam was held in 1968. Now, more than 50 years later, ASQ has granted nearly 500,000 certifications around the world and across industries.

ASQ Montreal Section leaders will moderate a bilingual virtual networking event on the topic of ASQ Certifications including their value, the range of Quality areas they focus on, how to get certified, and how to maintain these certifications. We will also take a moment to celebrate another season of conferences, of learning, and of adapting. Join us!

Call for Papers

ASQ Colour Line1

The ASQ Montreal Section is hosting the virtual 2021 ASQ Canada Quality Conference on the 4th and 5th October 2021 and we are calling for quality field experts to submit proposals to present at the conference in either French or English. The theme of the conference is "Risk and Resilience".

The objective is to get attendees to think about quantifying risk in a business sense and understand how to apply tools that help them assess quantitative risks and turn them into opportunities to make their organisations more resilient. We wish to make this conference as interactive as possible and so the basic format is to have a 40-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute breakout group or workshop to discuss the ideas presented. Each breakout group would then present to all attendees a summary of their thoughts (a few minutes per group), total 20 minutes. We will be offering both English and French language sessions with live translation services available in both languages.

We are seeking representation from the registrars, academia, pharma, medical devices, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, banking, human resources, medicine and service sectors. We are especially interested in hands-on examples. The breakout sessions can be discussions around the presentation topic, simulation and calculation exercises and other methods that encourage participation and deepen understanding. Presenters should consider questions to be discussed in the breakout session that will broaden knowledge of the participants through discussions.

See the call for paper details and to ask to present an article, please submit an abstract by 30 June 2021 to David Tozer, Technical Committee Chair. The committee will review the submissions and select papers for presentation.
