Based on extensive market analysis and member feedback, ASQ has decided to transition the delivery of certification exams from paper & pencil to computer based testing (CBT). This change will begin with the October 1, 2016 exams.
Examinee benefits of the transition include:
An increase of annual administrations, from two to six exam date options per year;
More testing locations - from 350 to 8,000;
Convenience of retesting reduced from every 6 months to 2 months;
Exam results in 0-4 days instead of 10.
Exams initially will be available in English, with translated exams available starting in March 2017.
