Philadelphia ASQ 0505 Section – CP350 Class Details:

Be part of a local study group led by a highly qualified and certified instructor. Be part of a facilitated, small, study group of local professionals doing a page-turn of IQC’s ASQ-approved CMQ/OE primer.  Your comprehension and exam score will surely increase by not studying alone. Join us!

Familiarize yourself with the exam: This course is presented in a way that reinforces current knowledge, re-introduces applications that may not be used every day, explains the rationale for use and highlights sample questions, both multiple-choice and constructed responses.

Pace your study over ten weekly sessions: As facilitator, the instructor will enable the group to see the fully body of knowledge and zero in on areas in need of self-study or brush up on your own before the exam. Participants will be asked to pre-read each section of the primer each class, so the page-turn in class can be fairly fast. The instructor will plan and encourage stopping points to discuss rational for and/or likelihood of examination questions.

Practice and receive critiques: As facilitator, the instructor will allow time at each session to practice multiple choice questions, and practice constructed response questions. The instructor will also provide individualized critiques via email between classes. If you are preparing for a retest to maintain/renew your certification, your input and participation is welcome. Time spent in-class will not only be fun but give you confidence entering the examination.

The primer is not included in the course fee. Before the first-class students must purchase the $80 printed copy of the Quality Council of Indiana CMQ Primer at http://www.qualitycouncil.com/CMQ.html.

We also recommend purchasing for yourself a copy of the $35 CMQ Solutions guide. Additional course material will be provided by the instructor.

Exam Registration is not included. The ASQ exam registration deadline is April 7th, 2017 for the May 5 – 21, 2017 Computer-Based Testing window. To register, go to ASQ.org https://asq.org/cert/catalog to find “Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence”.
