This course is based on the ASQ Quality Auditor Body of Knowledge. By teaching you to prepare, perform, report, and follow up audit results, the course prepares you to take the ASQ Certified Quality Auditor (CQA) exam.
Study at your own pace with this web-based course that is tailored to ASQ’s 2012 CQA body of knowledge updates. A great refresher course for those preparing for the CQA exam, it includes auditing concepts and descriptions backed by examples and scenarios. As requested by customers, we have added plenty of exam-style practice questions in a pre-test, a post-test and progress checks throughout the course - there are more than 350 questions to practice on. The pre-test also serves as a good self-assessment tool to determine which topics you need to focus your study on.
Additionally, a printable PDF download of the entire course is available that you can take with you into the CQA exam. Please note: no multiple choice formatted questions are admitted to the exam room – you will need to remove the study questions from the printout before the exam (there are page breaks to facilitate this).
