This Certified Quality Technician (CQT) refresher training is a 24 contact hour review delivered over 8 days in three hour virtual sessions. It is designed and taught to help experienced quality inspectors and technicians prepare for the CQT exam. It is intended to help the learner become thoroughly familiar with the complete Body of Knowledge by understanding the content covered by the six main domains in the ASQ CQT BoK. This is an instructor led virtual class.

The Certified Quality Technician is a paraprofessional who, in support of and under the direction of quality engineers or supervisors, analyzes and solves quality problems, prepares inspection plans and instructions, selects sampling plan applications, prepares procedures, trains inspectors, performs audits, analyzes quality costs and other quality data, and applies fundamental statistical methods for process control.

Why become certified? Becoming a Certified Quality Technician allows you to broaden your knowledge base beyond what you might do at your job. It provides you with third party recognition of your skills and abilities which may help you stand out from other inspectors, whether going for that promotion at your current job, or looking to change jobs or companies. Having an ASQ certification tells others you are serious about your profession and have taken the time and effort to advance in skills and abilities. This certification may also become a springboard for other certifications in your career path such as the Certificated Calibration Technician, Certified Quality Engineer or others as you grow in your career.

Certification from ASQ is considered a mark of quality excellence in many industries. It helps you advance your career, and boosts your organization’s bottom line through your mastery of quality skills. Becoming certified as a Quality Technician confirms your commitment to quality and the positive impact it will have on your organization.

Attendees of this course should have some prior knowledge of statistics, metrology, calibration, auditing, risk management, and inspection and test, as this course is designed as a review of the subject areas needed for the CQT exam.
