How to Easily Prepare for ASQ Recertification – Certified Software Quality Engineer (CSQE)

  • Quality Auditor
  • Reliability Engineer
  • Software Quality Engineer
  • Six Sigma Black Belt

Participants will learn about quality philosophies and principles, software development models, software inspection, and test methods, software maintenance, configuration management, software metrics, and software internal audits.

After passing the CSQE final exam through IQPS with at least an 80% pass rate (multiple attempts allowed), the participant is presented with a certificate indicating the passage of the course and given credit for 21 hours of study (or 2.1 RU’s). RU’s of training are required to maintain your CSQE certification by ASQ National. To recertify, CSQE holders must obtain 18 recertification units (RUs) within a three-year period or retake the certification exam at the end of the three-year recertification period. [2]
