NCCA ACCREDITATION

In 2019, ASQ's Certified Quality Auditor (CQA) certification program achieved accreditation through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Subsequently in 2020, ASQ’s Certified Quality Engineer (CQE), and Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) certification programs also achieved accreditation through NCCA. NCCA was established in 1977, by the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE), and provides impartial, third-party validation that a certification program has met recognized national and international credentialing industry standards for a program's development, implementation, and maintenance.

By earning accreditation ASQ demonstrates to the Quality profession it represents and the general public it serves, that its credentialing programs have been reviewed by a panel of impartial experts who have determined that our CQA, CSSBB & CQE programs have met the stringent standards set by the credentialing community.
