ACC’s Highland Business Center

To enroll in ASQ certification refresher courses, please register through Austin Community College (ACC). Austin ASQ partners with ACC to offer ASQ certification refresher courses. Classes are planned and scheduled 6 months in advanced for those courses with historical predictable demand; all classes require a minimum of six (6) committed students. Classes with less than 6 students registered can be cancelled up until the class start date due to arrangement requirements. The scheduled dates of these courses are aligned with the ASQ official certification exam dates predetermined by ASQ headquarters. Certification refresher courses can be taken to prepare for the certification exam(s), as part of a curriculum or program of study, and/or as part of professional development. ASQ headquarters defines and governs the certification curriculum, including exam dates and approved exam locations. To find out more: ASQ Certification Information

 

Certification Class Requests

If there are refresher courses not listed through ACC, and you and/or a company have interest in a particular one, please let us know. We will do our best to put together the certification course of your interest. As we need to align dates, instructors and course locations, a minimum number of registered students (6) is a key factor.

About ASQ Certification

ASQ Certification is formal recognition by ASQ that an individual has demonstrated proficiency within and a comprehension of a specified body of knowledge at a point in time. It is peer recognition and not registration or licensure. Since 1968, when the first ASQ certification exam was given, more than 85,000 individuals have become certified through ASQ, including many who have attained more than one designation. Although ASQ membership is not a prerequisite for certification, most of the people who hold one of these designations do belong to the Society.
