Certified Quality Inspector Certification Preparation

Course ID SPCQI2012ASQ
Format Web-based

This self-paced course covers the material you will see on the CQI exam. It includes a practice test based on the CQI Body of Knowledge. The graphic summary of these questions highlights the areas you should study further before taking your exam.

Study at your own pace with the content you’ll need to prepare for the Certified Quality Inspector exam. This Web-based course is developed from ASQ’s 2012 Certified Quality Inspector Body of Knowledge (BoK). The program includes tests, progress checks, and course activities that cover the four main domains in the CQI BoK. Practice questions are available as full assessments at the end of the course. Upon completion of the assessment, you will get a graphical summary of your scores on each main topic of the BoK. This will help you identify those areas that need further study.

This self-study program includes a printable PDF download of the entire course which you can take into the CQI 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).

Please Note: ASQ is currently migrating this product to a new platform. When the migration (which will not include any new content) is complete, you will automatically receive it in your learning plan. You will have both versions in your learning plan until June 30, 2017. Access to the original version will no longer be available after 6/30/2017. Progress in the old version cannot be transferred into the new version. After June 30th, the old version will be removed from your learning plan unless completed. If completed, you will still be able to print your certificate of completion but will no longer be able to launch the old version.

We recognize this may be an inconvenience for you and we will be providing you with a full year (365 days) of access to the new course from the date you receive it (not your original purchase date). This applies only to purchases made after July 1, 2016.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
