ASQ Certification Handbook
For many, the certification process remains something of a mystery. Frequently asked questions come up about how the exams are created, how they are scored, and how best to prepare for taking a test. These questions are answered in the ASQ Certification Handbook.
Quality Certificates vs. Certification
There has been a great deal of confusion as to the true meaning of certification, especially recently, as individuals and companies strive to achieve and validate competencies in a competitive job market. To help alleviate this confusion, definitions for each are provided as follows:
- Certifications are based on a noncommercial standard body of knowledge as developed by objective third-party entities.
- Certificates are awarded for participating in specific training.
- While there is nothing wrong with providing evidence of a course completion (whether through a document and/or accredited continuing education units), this should not be confused with the rigor and achievement of a professional certification
