Hints for the ASQ Certification Certified Quality Auditor Exam
Ensure you understand the four phases of the audit, (1) preparation, (2) performance, (3) Reporting and (4) Follow up.  You need to know what occurs in each phase and what is the output and activities of each phase.  You need to also understand the types of audits, product, process and system,  If the question is worded "An audit of a supplier....", this does not specify a particular audit, do not assume it is a system.

With the Certified Quality Auditor Exam, you have 5 hours to complete 150 multiple choice questions.  The first 125 questions are a sampling of the entire body of knowledge while the last 25 or so are case studies.  The case studies are questions focused on a very specific area or situation.  You have 5 hours to complete the exam with leaves you 2 minutes per question.  The CQA exam will not stress you time wise like other ASQ Certification exams.  The key to performing well and passing the exam is the preparation.  It is critical you understand the Body of Knowledge the exam is based on and realize your weaknesses relative to that information.  Get a copy of the ASQ Certification CQA Body of Knowledge. 

For each section outlined in the BOK write down bullet points that help explain the concept referenced in the Body of Knowledge.  Don't copy word for word from your reference material, you want to write it in your own words.  By the time you are done, you will find you have a pretty solid understanding of the Body of Knowledge requirements and this document will serve as an excellent reference during the exam.

With the new computer based testing ASQ has implemented, you can take the CQA (Certified Quality Auditor) exam on the following dates for the remainder of 2017 and early 2018:

         12/01/2017 -  12/17/2017

 02/02/2018 -  02/18/2018
 04/05/2018 -  04/18/2018

Our live classes begin in the first week of October and the first week of April.  You also have the option of viewing our recorded sessions.  The best option to prepare is when you purchase the live class if it is prior to the class starting, you can access the recorded sessions to view and study and then when the live classes begin you are better prepared to absorb the material presented.  This method provides you the best option for passing the exam.

We offer a wide range of class times to accommodate a variety of schedules. Let us know your constraints and we can fit a Certified Quality Auditor CQA class time to meet the needs of your schedule.  The classes offer a mixture of lecture, breakout sessions and quizzes. The training is conducted in an online classroom environment, with a high level of interactivity between students and instructor.  You will have access to the instructor outside of normal class times via email and phone to get your questions answered.  We may also include some additional class time, as the need exists to review material or answer questions.
