ASQ Certification Exam Training
ASQ Certification Training offered by Innovations for Quality, LLC



ASQ Certification is a prestigious and well respected certification that validates your credentials as quality professional in a specific area.  Our goal is to help you achieve certification which in turn increases your earning potential and marketability. 

Innovations for Quality, LLC is a company established to provide preparation training for the  Certified Quality exams administered by ASQ, however we are not affiliated with or a part of ASQ.   

The training we provide is normal classroom training with one difference, you attend the classroom from your computer.  You can view the lecture, ask questions and seek clarification on specific topics like onsite training but now you have more flexibility.  Another key feature is all of the classes are recorded and you have access to them whenever you want.

Our classes not only focus on the key areas of the various body on knowledge for a specific exam but we also spend a great deal of time on the strategy to attack the questions and how to plan for taking the exam.  In attacking the exam questions, stay within the scope of the question and select the best answer for the question.  For example, the question below:

A leader derives his or her leadership role from:

(a)    his or her experience and training
(b)    acceptance of his or her direction by followers
(c)    top management
(d)    acceptance by top management


The key to this question is "LEADER", what is a leader and what defines a leader.  A leader is someone who has followers.  With that, the answer becomes clear.  When you lose focus of the key word you can get bogged down by the appearance of strong filler answers such as "acceptance by top management".

The most influential factor in passing the ASQ certification exam is being prepared and that is a multi faceted approach.  You must understand the key information in the body of knowledge well and be disciplined to read the question thoroughly to determine the key points of the question.

For example, the question below:

Which of the following tools is most appropriate for categorizing a list of ideas for a continuous improvement effort?

(a)    brainstorming
(b)    prioritization matrix
(c)    affinity diagram
(d)    tree diagram

The key word in this question is categorizing.  Based on that the answer is (c).  If you change categorizing to generating, the answer becomes (a).  
 
Taking and passing an ASQ certification exam requires a strategy on exam day.  ASQ certification exams are time restricted, therefore you need a time management plan.  For example for the CQE exam you have five hours to complete 160 questions or 1.875 minutes/question.  If want to plan for completing the exam 30 minutes early that means you have 1.6875 minutes/question or you are working at about 18 questions every 30 minutes.  If you are not keeping this pace you need to adjust during the exam.

How to Proceed with ASQ Certification Process

Here are a few study hints to help you on your journey to ASQ Certification whether you take our course or not.  

Step 1
Gather your study materials.  There are a multitude of excellent reference materials out there from ASQ and the Quality Council of Indiana that support preparation of the various certifications.  The exams are open book, so the important aspect is to obtain a reference that you are comfortable with and can navigate well.  It is important to understand that you can use your reference material during the exam.  You don't want to rely on looking up everything, but certain questions lend themselves well for a quick reference.                       

Step 2
Read the material and study.  Continually reference the Body of Knowledge in during the study process to ensure you understand those key topics.

Step 3
Test yourself.  You can purchase sample questions from Quality Council of Indiana or ASQ.  It is important that you begin to test your knowledge in a timed format.  You cannot treat the questions as homework, but as a true timed quiz.  The actual ASQ exam will be timed and you must be prepared to manage your time during the exam.
  
Step 4
Review the results to see what areas you are weak in and thoroughly understand why you are incorrectly answering questions.  Are you making mistakes relative to the interpretation of the question or did you not understand the information?  

Step 5
Go back to step 4 and add new material from the body of knowledge, while continuing to study the previously reviewed material.  This is important, do not study the material and move on, you must keep revisiting the material to keep it fresh in your mind.
