Changes to Recertification Process

Dr David TozerBy Dr. David Tozer, Ph.D., ASQ CQE and SSBB, Education & Audit Chair.

By the end of this year, ASQ will change the rules for collecting Recertification Units for certification maintenance.

The main changes affecting certification are:

  • Section events will count for 0.1 Recertification Units per hour of the event; currently, they count for 0.5 RUs per event.
  • Whole day events will count for 1.0 Recertification Unit.
  • There is a reclassification of some of the categories to different sections of categories.
    • Obsolete categories are deleted (proctoring & multimedia).
    • The Professional Development section (events, courses, training, education . . . ) has no upper limit on the number of Recertification Units that can be claimed.
  • A Giving back Section is added for volunteering and mentoring.
