ASQ Test Preparation Course

Target Audience: People who want to pass the CQA exam for ASQ certification 


This training session is geared toward helping you pass the CQA exam for ASQ certification. Today, ISO 9001 and its associated standards have become the basis for most effective quality management systems. This international standard allows potential customers, domestic and foreign, recognize those registered organizations as having met the basic organizational criteria for doing business.

An important part of this management system consists of organizational self-examination...regular reviews of their practices to ensure continual improvement. An internal audit conducted by ASQ certified auditors creates a level of credibility and authenticity not available to other internal audits. The ASQ CQA focuses on adding value through the audit process rather than merely capturing mistakes. At QTI, we emphasize that internal audits must benefit the organization in ways that improve the bottom line. Value based auditing. It makes sense, and it works!

The exam itself is offered through the ASQ. It is "open book" and consists of 150 questions which must be completed within 5 hours. Approximately 25-30 questions will involve "case study" questions with the typical multiple choice answer, but the questions will involve critical thinking and the use of scenario details for answering the questions.
