Certification and Re-certification

ASQ certification is a formal recognition by ASQ that an individual has demonstrated a proficiency within, and comprehension of, a specific body of knowledge. Nearly 500,000 certifications have been granted around the world and across a wide variety of industries. According to the ASQ Website (asq.org), "Since 1991, certification has been rated as one of the three most valued benefits of ASQ membership. A professional certification offers tangible benefits to both the individual and the employer. Invest in yourself and your career with this mark of excellence. Gain an advantage over your competition and increase the potential of earning a higher salary."

ASQ currently offers 18 individual certifications that support various levels of employment, from entry-level to Management. Certifications are available to support the following areas of Quality:

  • Auditors
  • Inspectors
  • Technicians
  • Engineers
  • Supplier Quality
  • Six Sigma
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Process Analysts
  • Management
ASQ requires that you re-certify specific certifications every three years to ensure that you maintain the same level of knowledge demonstrated in your first exam.
