This course is intended for students who plan on taking the Certified Quality Engineer exam. It helps prepare you by focusing on the most difficult topics on the exam.
This course provides a very thorough overview of the reliability, acceptance sampling, and quantitative methods topics covered in the body of knowledge for the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) exam. It is designed to teach these topics in particular since they are the topics most commonly failed on the CQE exam.

Detailed Course Description
This is NOT an introductory course and is intended for those planning to sit for the Certified Quality Engineer exam. However, the topics are covered in sufficient detail so that people with little advance knowledge of the concepts will be able to master them with practice.
Each topic is presented in a practical, easy to follow manner that emphasizes the practical application of the tools covered. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice most quantitative tools during class as well as with optional homework exercises. A comprehensive manual, designed for use as an exam reference book, is provided to each attendee. The manual provides a review of the non-quantitative exam topics but covers the quantitative topics in great detail. It includes an appendix that includes all necessary statistical tables and a removable set of more than 500 sample exam questions (with an answer key) for exam study purposes.
*Taking this course does not constitute or imply the successful passing of the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer exam. Participants will need to study other CQE BOK topics and practice course concepts outside of class to adequately prepare for the exam.
This course is designed to teach the reliability, acceptance sampling, and quantitative methods topics included in the BOK, so no prior knowledge of statistics is necessary. However, a solid understanding of basic algebra and the ability to work with algebraic formulas is required. Experience as a quality engineer is required to qualify for the exam.
This is a face-to-face, instructor-led, 4½-day course.
The student manual is included with the purchase price of this course and will be delivered to the student on-site during the first day of class.
