Certified Quality Technician Certification Preparation

Format Face-to-Face

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:Third Edition. Please bring a non-programmable calculator to class (Sharp EL-506TSBBW is recommended).

Note: This course is a refresher and, due to time limitations, 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.

ASQ also offers this training course in an instructor-led virtual classroom setting, and on-site training is available for groups of five or more, offering convenience, cost-savings and even course customization when you bring our premier instructors to your organization.
