ASQ Recertification Journal
To maintain the integrity of your certification ASQ requires that you recertify every three years—either by journal or by exam.
The purpose of recertifying is to ensure that as an ASQ-certified quality professional you maintain the same level of knowledge
originally demonstrated when you passed the written examination. If you do not recertify, your certification will lapse and ASQ
will no longer recognize you as “certified.”
Recertification by RU credits is a simple process of obtaining a minimum of 18 recertification units (RUs) within your three-year
certification period. You may accumulate the 18 RU credits from professional activities that either increase your knowledge
of the Body of Knowledge (BOK) or that are job enhancing. All activities may be started before you initially obtain your
ASQ certification, but must be completed within your three-year recertification period to qualify. Refresher courses, for
initial certification exams, may not be counted toward that recertification period, but may be applied toward another
recertification if it lies within that certification BOK or is job enhancing. You may also choose to recertify by exam every
three years in lieu of recertifying by RU credits.
You will find many helpful and new tips for recertification included in the journal. If you do not find what you are looking
