CQT Exam Preparation 3 Day Course

Pre Conference 3 Day Course
 

CQT Exam Preparation Course

Prepare for the ASQ Certified Quality Technician exam as you review and practice the areas of the Body of Knowledge. Reinforce your current understanding of the Certified Quality Technician (CQT) Body of Knowledge. Get practice in applications that may not be used every day, and become familiar with “exam-style” questions throughout the course.

Students receive course materials and a copy of ASQ’s Certified Quality Technician Handbook: Second Edition. Please bring a non-programmable calculator to class (T130 is recommended).

Note: This course is a refresher and though the Body of Knowledge will be covered in its entirety, due to time limitations, this course is not intended to cover all the components of the Body of Knowledge in great depth. Taking this course does not constitute, nor imply, the successful passing of the ASQ Certified Quality Technician examination.

Acceptance Sampling

Presenter: John Vandenbemden
Sampling is one of the most fundamental activities an organization conducts to validate and verify a product is in conformity or a process is operating as it was designed to do. Sampling has a significant impact on resources, time to sample, time to perform an inspection or test, time to document results, and time to take required action as needed.

This workshop will start with a brief introduction of the basics and fundamentals of sampling. This will create the foundation to move into acceptance sampling. Both attribute and variable sampling plans will be presented. The workshop will include hands-on application of the tables associated with acceptance sampling plans; ANSI standards Z1.4 and Z1.9.
 

Basic Inspection: Beginning Level

Advance registration is required – limit 16 people
Presenter: Gregory Gay
The focus of this workshop is to get precision tools into the hands of the attendees and to review the proper procedures to achieve precise measurements. Parts will be provided to the class in order to practice precision measurement. Attendees will be using micrometers, calipers, pin gages, gage blocks, dial indicators, depth gages, height stands with surface plates, and additional hand precision measuring tools. This workshop will also cover use of go/no-go gages, functional gages, and how to determine correct gage pin sizes. Not only will each attendee conduct measurements but there will also be some group measurements with analysis of the results. The workshop includes a discussion of calibration and the need to check gages prior to use.

Core Tools

Advance registration is required – limit 20 people
Presenter: JD Marhevko
This is an interactive session on how to use Core Tools such as Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Dynamic Control Plans (DCP) (a blend of the Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plan (CP)), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) and Statistical Process Control (SPC). Attendees will actively participate in the development of each these tools across the session and understand their key functions in an organization. Several successful examples across various business types will be shared. Attendees will walk away with various samples that they can use in their own organizations.
 

Managing Risk in Calibration

Advance registration is required – limit 16 people
Presenter: Dilip Shah, E = mc3 Solutions
The new ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and the current ISO 9001:2015 standards have requirements for consideration of risk in the organization’s quality management system. This hands-on interactive workshop engages the attendees on the understanding of risk as it applies to its calibration and inspection activities. After understanding the concepts of risk, the attendees will conduct an estimation of measurement uncertainty budget for inspection tools such as calipers and micrometers. They will then assess the risk on the inspection of parts that they will measure. Upon completion of this interactive workshop, the attendees will have the following learning outcome:

  1. Understanding of measurement related terminology including risk.
  2. Understanding and application of measurement uncertainty estimation and how it impacts Metrological Traceability, calibration and inspection activities.
  3. Confidence in making compliance decisions (pass/fail, go/no-go) on inspection of parts while minimizing risk.
  4. Specifying calibration services to minimize risk.
