Exam Prep Classes

MNASQ Exam Prep Classes Guarantee

If you attend the certification exam prep class and don’t pass the certification exam, you can retake the class FREE OF CHARGE.

“I attended the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) refresher course lead by Robert McClement. I attended to prepare for the ASQ CQE exam and the course content was spot on for that purpose . In addition to exam preparation, I found the course to be a very good refresher in areas of the CQE body of knowledge that I do not use frequently. This review has given me important insights into other areas of our business. I recommend this Minnesota ASQ section course and Robert’s instruction for anyone seeking ASQ certification or looking for an effective review of the ASQ body of knowledge.” Daniel Belka, July 13, 2010

Class Content

Certification Exam Prep classes are structured for people with work experience related to the certification Body of Knowledge but who need to review the material and brush up on their exam-taking skills. If you are unfamiliar with aspects of the Body of Knowledge of the certification exam you are considering, please taking a training workshop before signing up for exam prep class.

These classes review the Body of Knowledge for practicing professionals who are already familiar with the information; they are not intended to teach the material or meet the needs of those who are looking to learn the information.  The student should have sufficient background in the certification area to efficiently answer 40-60 percent of the questions BEFORE the sessions. These classes provide exam advice, review some of the more difficult topics, and provide an opportunity to network with other exam takers.

Class Format & Materials

Tuition does not include the course texts.  Classes are structured using the Indiana Quality Primer and Solution Text or materials from ASQ.  Course materials must be purchased prior to the start of class.   The electronic exam CD, while helpful, is not required.

Class Size

Each class is limited to 40 registrants on a first-come, first-served basis. If you register for a class after it is full, you name will be placed on a waiting list.   A class will be cancelled if we do not have a minimum of three (3) registered students before the first class.

Registration Cancellation & Refund Policy

Registrations cannot be accepted after the posted deadline. Requests for cancellation must be received by 5pm on the deadline date in order to receive a full refund. Cancellations received after the deadline date are subject to a $60.00 cancellation charge. MNASQ exam prep courses and ASQ certification exams are independent of each other; MNASQ is not responsible for costs incurred as a result of cancelled courses or cancelled exams.
