Frequently Asked Questions

What is "synchronizing my certifications" and how do I do it?

If you hold multiple ASQ certifications you can "synchronize" them and renew them all at once by submitting a single recertification journal instead of separately renewing different certifications with different expiration dates.

To synchronize two or more certifications, you need to include documentation for the 18 recertification units required to recertify the certification that is currently due. On the front cover of the recertification application form, indicate what other ASQ certification(s) you wish to synchronize with the certification that is currently due. (You're not required to provide evidence for any of the other certifications you are trying to synchronize.) If the certification that is currently due is approved, we will adjust all other certifications you indicate on the application form to expire at the same time as the certification currently due. For future recertifications, you only need to provide a total of 18 recertification units for all synchronized certifications on one application form with one set of documentation.

The fees for recertifying two or more certifications are:

  • Member Price: $89.00 total
  • Nonmember: $109.00 each
