ASQ Quality Engineer Exam Workshop

The pass rate for all ASQ exams is determined to a large extent by the knowledge level of the body of knowledge.   However, failure to understand what the person who wrote the question is looking for in an answer is equally important.  This 8-hour workshop discusses the various areas of expertise tested in the exam and test taking techniques.  Selecting the correct answer requires a thorough understanding of what the question is asking.  Sample test questions in the body of knowledge are analyzed, the answer selected, and discussed to understand why the correct answer is correct, and more importantly, why the wrong answer is wrong.

The course includes the Quality Engineer text book and workshop handouts and test questions.  Participants will take practice portions of the exam in preparation for the CQE exam.

If you are an ASQ ECD member.  Please contact Marion Bize or Charlie Plotkin to discuss.

When:  TBD (8 hours)

Cost: $199 per person

Instructor:  Instructor, Gerry Sherman, ASQ ECD
