ASQ Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence Refresher

Course Methodology
This is not an introductory course but one that is intended for those planning to sit for the certified quality manager exam. However, the topics are covered in such sufficient detail so that people with little advanced knowledge of the concepts will be able to master them with practice.

Each topic is presented in a practical, easy to follow manner that emphasizes the practical application of the tools covered. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice tools during the course as well as with optional homework exercises. A comprehensive manual, designed for use as an exam reference book, is provided to each attendee which provides a review of exam topics as well as several sample exams.

Pre-work assignments are an important part of this course and attendees are expected to complete the assignments prior to the start of the first class. This course is a refresher and due to time limitations, it is not intended to cover all the components of the Body of Knowledge (BOK) in great depth. Taking this course does not constitute, nor imply, the successful passing of the ASQ Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence (CMQ/OE) examination. The 'Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence' book (by R. Westcott) will be used as the main handbook for training and will be provided to participants on the first day.
