Recertifying Has Just Become Easier

Based on member feedback, ASQ has increased the recertification unit (RU) point thresholds significantly, rewarding section and division activities. These changes were approved by the ASQ Certification Board in September 2016, and went into effect on January 1, 2017.  You can now claim 10.8 points for meetings instead of 9.0 and 8.0 instead of 6.0 points for Committees.
