I noticed that the membership renewal is almost twice the amount for recertification. Is it possible to renew the certification without renewing the membership? Also, is the Recertification payment refundable if ASQ disapproved some claimed RU making it less than the minimum.
it is easier and less expensive to renew your ASQ certifications as a member than a non-member. You also get RU for retaining your membership. If you have more than 1 ASQ certification, members can renew at a fixed “synchronized” rate, which offers greater discounts.
Agree with above response in that Recertification is an easier approach. There are many ways in which you can collect the RUs. The criteria to claim RUs for each of the activity is clearly defined however reach out to ASQ if you have questions and they will explain in detail.
Best luck, Cyrus!
