Pass rates have varied over time, we are continuously improving. Of those attendees who follow our plan, over 95% will pass the certification exam on their first attempt. In summary what we have found is those students who follow our plan will pass.

Each certification candidate is required to pass an examination that consists of multiple-choice questions that measure comprehension of the Body of Knowledge as well as two constructed response (essay) questions. Computer Delivered - The CMQ/OE examination is a two-part, 165- multiple choice question, four-and-a-half-hour exam and is offered in English only. 150 questions are scored and 15 are unscored. There are two constructed response (essay) questions.

I would suggest you get started with the application earlier than later. Students that get everything planned out and set up tend to be better because they now have deadlines they are working toward. For the average working student I would schedule the exam for four months out from the date you start the class.

Body of Knowledge

The pass percentage varies from one exam to another. CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) students all have the potential to take a different exam from one another. I always tell my students if you can get an 80% you will pass, I have always found this to be true. In reality the percentage is somewhere below 80% but fairly close to that standard. ASQ will only show you the test results if you fail the exam. Those that pass the exam are only told they passed but will not be given the percentage they achieved. Panels of experts examine every certification exam to ensure that the grading process provides an accurate assessment of a candidate's proficiency. The experts establish the passing score for an exam and also use statistical analysis to make sure that different versions of an exam are equally challenging. ASQ certification exams use a "cut-score" process. You need a score of 550 points out of a possible 750 to be certified.

The CQI (Certified Quality Inspector) is a lifetime certification. No recertification is needed. Why should I become ASQ CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) certified? Quality competition is a fact of life, and the need for a work force proficient in the principles and practices of quality control is a central concern of many companies. Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to assure quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. One of my students was recently looking for a new job without success. This student decided to get the CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) certification and after successfully taking the exam posted it on his resume and the next day got three calls for interviews and got several offers from those interviews. The ASQ CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) cert is highly respected within industry.

Work experience must be in a full-time, paid role. Paid intern, co-op or any other course work cannot be applied toward the work experience requirement. Two years of on-the-job experience in mechanical inspection or a related field. A high-school diploma or GED or an additional three years of related on-the-job experience is necessary. Degrees or diplomas from educational institutions outside the United States must be equivalent to degrees from U.S. educational institutions.

I recommend the TI-30XA. This calculator will offer everything you need to pass the ASQ CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) certification exam. I will also teach you how to use this calculator though out the instructional material. All computer-based exams feature a basic scientific calculator on-screen in the exam. Prometric Test Center Administrators can provide you with a hand-held basic calculator upon request. With the introduction of tablets and palmtop computers and the increasing sophistication of scientific calculators, ASQ has become increasingly aware of the need to limit the types of calculators permitted for use during the examinations. Any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator with no programmable memory will be permitted. Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your ASQ CQI (CERTIFIED QUALITY INSPECTOR) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.

Pass rates have varied over time, we are continuously improving. Of those attendees who follow our plan, over 85% will pass the certification exam on their first attempt. In summary what we have found is those students who follow our plan will pass. The pass rate for students that do not participate in our program is approximately a 50% first time pass rate.

Each certification candidate is required to pass an examination that consists of multiple-choice questions that measure comprehension of the Body of Knowledge. Computer Delivered – The CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) examination is a one-part, 110 – multiple choice question, four-and-a-half-hour exam and is offered in English only. 100 multiple choice questions are scored and 10 are unscored. Paper and pencil exams are offered at some ASQ events (symposiums) and consists of one part, 100- multiple choice questions, for your exam and is offered in English only.

I would recommend it. You can take the exam without becoming a member of ASQ however it is more expensive to take the exam as a non-member. The cost of taking the exam as an ASQ member is $268 and the cost as a non-member is $418 (save $150). The cost of joining ASQ (Associate Member) is approximately $100.

$159 for full membership and $99 for associate membership. You only need to be an associate member to take the ASQ CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) exam.

I would suggest you get started with the application earlier than later. Students that get everything planned out and set up tend to be better because they now have deadlines they are working toward. For the average working student I would schedule the exam for four months out from the date you start the class.

The pass percentage varies from one exam to another. CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) students all have the potential to take a different exam from one another. I always tell my students if you can get an 80% you will pass, I have always found this to be true. In reality the percentage is somewhere below 80% but fairly close to that standard. ASQ will only show you the test results if you fail the exam. Those that pass the exam are only told they passed but will not be given the percentage they achieved. Panels of experts examine every certification exam to ensure that the grading process provides an accurate assessment of a candidate's proficiency. The experts establish the passing score for an exam and also use statistical analysis to make sure that different versions of an exam are equally challenging. ASQ certification exams use a "cut-score" process. You need a score of 550 points out of a possible 750 to be certified.

The CQT (Certified Quality Technician) is a lifetime certification. No recertification is needed.

Quality competition is a fact of life, and the need for a work force proficient in the principles and practices of quality control is a central concern of many companies. Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to assure quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. One of my students was recently looking for a new job without success. This student decided to get the CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) certification and after successfully taking the exam posted it on his resume and the next day got three calls for interviews and got several offers from those interviews. The ASQ CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) cert is highly respected within industry.

Candidates must have worked in a full-time, paid role. Paid intern, co-op or any other course work cannot be applied toward the work experience requirement. Candidates must have at least four years of higher education and/or work experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified Quality Technician Body of Knowledge. Candidates who were previously certified by ASQ as a quality engineer, quality auditor, reliability engineer, software quality engineer or quality manager, experience used to qualify for certification in those fields applies to certification as a quality technician.

I recommend the TI-30XA. This calculator will offer everything you need to pass the ASQ CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) certification exam. I will also teach you how to use this calculator though out the instructional material. All computer-based exams feature a basic scientific calculator on-screen in the exam. Prometric Test Center Administrators can provide you with a hand-held basic calculator upon request. With the introduction of tablets and palmtop computers and the increasing sophistication of scientific calculators, ASQ has become increasingly aware of the need to limit the types of calculators permitted for use during the examinations. Any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator with no programmable memory will be permitted. Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your ASQ CQT (CERTIFIED QUALITY TECHNICIAN) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.

Paper and pencil exams are offered at some ASQ events (symposiums) and consists of one part, 125- multiple choice questions, for your exam and is offered in English only. This is a 4 hour exam.

The electronic exams are offered at PROMETRIC facilities located around the world. To find a PROMETRIC site near you go to https://securereg3.prometric.com/Dispatch.aspx .

I would recommend it. You can take the exam without becoming a member of ASQ however it is more expensive to take the exam as a non-member. The cost of taking the exam as an ASQ member is $348 and the cost as a non-member is $498 (save $150). The cost of joining ASQ (Associate Member) is approximately $100.

The cost of taking the CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) exam as an ASQ member is $268 and the cost as a non-member is $418 (save $150 if you are a member). The cost of joining ASQ (Associate Member) is approximately $100.

$159 for full membership and $99 for associate membership. You only need to be an associate member to take the CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) exam.

I would suggest you get started with the application earlier than later. Students that get everything planned out and set up tend to be better because they now have deadlines they are working toward. For the average working student I would schedule the exam for four months out from the date you start the class.

The pass percentage varies from one exam to another. CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) students all have the potential to take a different exam from one another. I always tell my students if you can get an 80% you will pass, I have always found this to be true. In reality the percentage is somewhere below 80% but fairly close to that standard. ASQ will only show you the test results if you fail the exam. Those that pass the exam are only told they passed but will not be given the percentage they achieved. Panels of experts examine every certification exam to ensure that the grading process provides an accurate assessment of a candidate's proficiency. The experts establish the passing score for an exam and also use statistical analysis to make sure that different versions of an exam are equally challenging. ASQ certification exams use a "cut-score" process. You need a score of 550 points out of a possible 750 to be certified.

To maintain the integrity of your Calibration Technician certification, ASQ requires that you recertify every three years. You must earn 18 recertification units (RU’s) within a three-year recertification period or retake the certification exam at the end of the 3 year recertification period.

Quality competition is a fact of life, and the need for a work force proficient in the principles and practices of quality control is a central concern of many companies. Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to assure quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. One of my students was recently looking for a new job without success. This student decided to get the CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) certification and after successfully taking the exam posted it on his resume and the next day got three calls for interviews and got several offers from those interviews. The CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) cert is highly respected within industry.

Candidates who have completed a degree from a college, university or technical school with accreditation accepted by ASQ will have part of the five-year experience requirement waived, as follows (only one of these waivers may be claimed): Diploma from a technical, military, or trade school — two years waived Associate degree — two year waived Bachelor's degree — two years waived Master's or doctorate — two years waived Degrees/diplomas from educational institutions outside the United States must be equivalent to degrees from U.S. educational institutions.

I recommend the TI-30XA. This calculator will offer everything you need to pass the CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) certification exam. I will also teach you how to use this calculator though out the instructional material. All computer-based exams feature a basic scientific calculator on-screen in the exam. Prometric Test Center Administrators can provide you with a hand-held basic calculator upon request. With the introduction of tablets and palmtop computers and the increasing sophistication of scientific calculators, ASQ has become increasingly aware of the need to limit the types of calculators permitted for use during the examinations. Any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator with no programmable memory will be permitted. Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your CCT (CERTIFIED CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.

I would suggest you get started with the application earlier than later. Students that get everything planned out and set up tend to be better because they now have deadlines they are working toward. For the average working student I would schedule the exam for four months out from the date you start the class.

To see the CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) BOK go to the home page and choose the BOK option.

Body of Knowledge

The pass percentage varies from one exam to another. CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) students all have the potential to take a different exam from one another. I always tell my students if you can get an 80% you will pass, I have always found this to be true. In reality the percentage is somewhere below 80% but fairly close to that standard. ASQ will only show you the test results if you fail the exam. Those that pass the exam are only told they passed but will not be given the percentage they achieved. Panels of experts examine every certification exam to ensure that the grading process provides an accurate assessment of a candidate's proficiency. The experts establish the passing score for an exam and also use statistical analysis to make sure that different versions of an exam are equally challenging. ASQ certification exams use a "cut-score" process. You need a score of 550 points out of a possible 750 to be certified.

To maintain the integrity of your Manager of Quality / Operational Excellence certification, ASQ requires that you recertify every three years. You must earn 18 recertification units (RU’s) within a three-year recertification period or retake the certification exam at the end of the 3 year recertification period.

Quality competition is a fact of life, and the need for a work force proficient in the principles and practices of quality control is a central concern of many companies. Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to assure quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. One of my students was recently looking for a new job without success. This student decided to get the CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) certification and after successfully taking the exam posted it on his resume and the next day got three calls for interviews and got several offers from those interviews. The CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) cert is highly respected within industry.

Candidates must have worked in a full-time, paid role. Paid intern, co-op or any other course work cannot be applied toward the work experience requirement. Candidates must have 10 years of on-the-job experience in one or more of the areas of the Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence Body of Knowledge. A minimum of five years of this experience must be in a decision-making position, defined as the authority to define, execute or control projects/processes and to be responsible for the outcome. This may or may not include management or supervisory positions. If you've been certified by ASQ as a quality auditor, reliability engineer, software quality engineer, or quality engineer, experience used to qualify for certification in these fields applies to certification as a manager of quality/organizational excellence, as long as the 10-year minimum requirement is met. Candidates who have completed a degree from a college, university or technical school with accreditation accepted by ASQ will have part of the 10-year experience requirement waived, as follows (only one of these waivers may be claimed): Diploma from a technical or trade school — one year will be waived Associate degree — two years waived Bachelor's degree — four years waived Master's or doctorate — five years waived Degrees or diplomas from educational institutions outside the United States must be equivalent to degrees from U.S. educational institutions.

I recommend the TI-30XA. This calculator will offer everything you need to pass the CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) certification exam. I will also teach you how to use this calculator though out the instructional material. All computer-based exams feature a basic scientific calculator on-screen in the exam. Prometric Test Center Administrators can provide you with a hand-held basic calculator upon request. With the introduction of tablets and palmtop computers and the increasing sophistication of scientific calculators, ASQ has become increasingly aware of the need to limit the types of calculators permitted for use during the examinations. Any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator with no programmable memory will be permitted. Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your CMQ/OE (CERTIFIED MANAGER OF QUALITY / OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.

Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your CQE (CERTIFIED QUALITY ENGINEER) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.

After every chapter you read there are test questions that cover your reading assignment. You instructor gives a lecture over half the questions, to explain the logic used in deriving the correct answer for the various questions, the other half is left for you to practice with. On the mathematical chapters your instructor will work all problems at the end of those chapters, as applicable. You will listen to the solutions, turn off the video, and then work them on your own. This makes it less painful to develop the skill you need to pass the CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) certification exam.

$159 for full membership and $99 for associate membership. You only need to be an associate member to take the CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) exam.

I would suggest you get started with the application earlier than later. Students that get everything planned out and set up tend to be better because they now have deadlines they are working toward. For the average working student I would schedule the exam for four months out from the date you start the class.

The pass percentage varies from one exam to another. CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) students all have the potential to take a different exam from one another. I always tell my students if you can get an 80% you will pass, I have always found this to be true. In reality the percentage is somewhere below 80% but fairly close to that standard. ASQ will only show you the test results if you fail the exam. Those that pass the exam are only told they passed but will not be given the percentage they achieved. Panels of experts examine every certification exam to ensure that the grading process provides an accurate assessment of a candidate's proficiency. The experts establish the passing score for an exam and also use statistical analysis to make sure that different versions of an exam are equally challenging. ASQ certification exams use a "cut-score" process. You need a score of 550 points out of a possible 750 to be certified.

To maintain the integrity of your Six Sigma Black Belt certification, ASQ requires that you recertify every three years. You must earn 18 recertification units (RU’s) within a three-year recertification period or retake the certification exam at the end of the 3 year recertification period.

Quality competition is a fact of life, and the need for a work force proficient in the principles and practices of quality control is a central concern of many companies. Certification is a mark of excellence. It demonstrates that the certified individual has the knowledge to assure quality of products and services. Certification is an investment in your career and in the future of your employer. One of my students was recently looking for a new job without success. This student decided to get the CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) certification and after successfully taking the exam posted it on his resume and the next day got three calls for interviews and got several offers from those interviews. The CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) cert is highly respected within industry.

Six Sigma Black Belt requires two completed projects with signed affidavits or one completed project with signed affidavit and three years of work experience in one or more areas of the Six Sigma Body of Knowledge. For more information, please see the list of Six Sigma Project Affidavit FAQs. You do not need to be a Certified Six Sigma Green Belt. Work experience must be in a full time, paid role. Paid intern, co-op or any other course work cannot be applied towards the work experience requirement.

I recommend the TI-30XA. This calculator will offer everything you need to pass the CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) certification exam. I will also teach you how to use this calculator though out the instructional material. All computer-based exams feature a basic scientific calculator on CSSBB in the exam. Prometric Test Center Administrators can provide you with a hand-held basic calculator upon request. With the introduction of tablets and palmtop computers and the increasing sophistication of scientific calculators, ASQ has become increasingly aware of the need to limit the types of calculators permitted for use during the examinations. Any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator with no programmable memory will be permitted. Programmable calculators tend to have graphing capabilities, the ability to store text/alphanumeric data by the input of the user, and a function (fn, F1, F2, etc.) button. Calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89 or similar are absolutely not allowed because they are programmable. The examination is written so that a simple calculator will be sufficient to perform all calculations. Examinees are allowed to have a backup calculator if necessary.

Upon completion of the computer-based examination, you will receive a printed copy of your CSSBB (CERTIFIED SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT) test results. In addition to the overall pass/fail status, important diagnostic information on your performance is provided to candidates who fail the examination. This information provides specific guidance to failing candidates.
