Hi Everyone!
My name is Gerardo Martinez and I am from the Orange County area in California, USA. I am a fairly new Quality Engineer (~2 years in Quality) and work in the medical device industry. This is my first job graduating out of college, and joining ASQ I am really interested in learning more about the foundation of Quality in industry (outside of what I have learned in my company). I hope to meet great people and learn more about Quality to become a stronger Quality Engineer. I am also looking to take the Certified Quality Engineer exam about a year from now over the course of the next year, learn and prepare for that.

Look forward to being part of this community and learning more about Quality! Have a good one!

-Gerardo M.

Hi Gerardo Martinez‍ - Welcome to myASQ!  A good place to start is the Learn About Quality area of asq.org https://asq.org/quality-resources/learn-about-quality
The CQE exam is a tough one - please check out the qualifications to make sure you qualify.  https://p.widencdn.net/sbkznx/41577-Cert-Factsheet-CQE You need 8 years of experience (College counts towards that).   Use the Cert Pathways Tool to see if you're qualified - https://asq.org/cert
Please let me know if you need any help navigating all this :) 
Thank you so much!
