How does our ASQ Certification Training work?

Our ASQ Certification exam preparation training provides a blend of lecture and breakout sessions complimented with testing and quizzing.   In today's fast paced business environment our Virtual Classroom Technology (VCT) presents an active, engaging learning environment that accommodates a busy schedule.  This highly participative, interactive, online classroom affords you the ability to prepare and pass the certification exam at a cost effective price, while maintaining a balance in your life.  Read the testimonials of some of our past students and see how the training helped them achieve their goals.

Classes will meet at least once per week and most typically a couple of times per week.  We are attempting to build momentum leading into the exam.  The classes will not only cover the material you need to know but also test taking strategies.  These strategies include breaking down the question and answers into their component parts, understanding which answers can be ruled out and then selecting the strongest answer relative to the question.

How to Proceed with ASQ Certification Process

Here are a few study hints to help you on your journey to ASQ Certification whether you take our course or not.  

Step 1
Gather your study materials.  There are a multitude of excellent reference materials out there from ASQ and the Quality Council of Indiana that support preparation of the various certifications.  The exams are open book, so the important aspect is to obtain a reference that you are comfortable with and can navigate well.  It is important to understand that you can use your reference material during the exam.  You don't want to rely on looking up everything, but certain questions lend themselves well for a quick reference.                       

Step 2
Read the material and study.  Continually reference the Body of Knowledge in during the study process to ensure you understand those key topics.

Step 3
Test yourself.  You can purchase sample questions from Quality Council of Indiana or ASQ.  It is important that you begin to test your knowledge in a timed format.  You cannot treat the questions as homework, but as a true timed quiz.  The actual ASQ exam will be timed and you must be prepared to manage your time during the exam.
  
Step 4
Review the results to see what areas you are weak in and thoroughly understand why you are incorrectly answering questions.  Are you making mistakes relative to the interpretation of the question or did you not understand the information?  

Step 5
Go back to step 4 and add new material from the body of knowledge, while continuing to study the previously reviewed material.  This is important, do not study the material and move on, you must keep revisiting the material to keep it fresh in your mind.
