I'm Shawn Varela from the Connecticut area. Recently, (with the stay-at-home issue) I have found the time to load up on certifications. Does anyone have a background in NQA-1?
At least working from home has brought about some good things. It's always good to improve yourself.
I did a quick search on NQA-1 on asq.org and found this overview http://asq.org/ee/2018/02/overview-of-nuclear-quality-standard-nqa-1.pdf and perhaps check out the Energy and Environmental Division. I also searched here on myASQ and found https://my.asq.org/search?query=NQA-1
Gretchen Peterson our research librarian might be able to point you to more specific information. Do you have anything specific about NQA-1 that you're looking for?
I'm tagging a few other people who might be able to provide some insights on it - Nathaniel Price , Kevin Posey Heath Low
Let me know if you have any questions. Happy to help
I do have NQA-1 parts I-IV certification, and lead auditor certification. Unfortunately, I haven't performed an audit under a lead auditor for my final phase of qualification. (I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy!) I was wondering if I could participate as a Quality Specialist (20 yrs worth of exp.) on someone's audit for free. I think I will need to visit the Energy and Environment Division discussion boards.
Amazing, Trish! I am overwhelmed with your wealth of knowledge and familiarity with these discussion boards. You are just the best. Party on, Trish!
