The Value of ASQ Certifications
La valeur des certifications ASQ

June 16 Juin, 2021 - 18h30

La certification ASQ est une reconnaissance formelle par l’ASQ qu’un individu a démontré une compétence et une compréhension d’un ensemble spécifique de connaissances. Les responsables de la section de Montréal de l'ASQ animeront un événement de réseautage virtuel bilingue sur le thème des Certifications de l'ASQ, notamment leur valeur, la gamme de domaines de qualité sur lesquels ils se concentrent, la façon d'obtenir une certification et la façon de maintenir ces certifications. Nous prendrons également un moment pour célébrer une autre saison de conférences, d'apprentissage et d'adaptation. Rejoignez-nous !

ASQ certification is a formal recognition by ASQ that an individual has demonstrated a proficiency within, and comprehension of, a specific body of knowledge. ASQ Montreal Section leaders will moderate a bilingual virtual networking event on the topic of ASQ Certifications including their value, the range of Quality areas they focus on, how to get certified, and how to maintain these certifications. We will also take a moment to celebrate another season of conferences, of learning, and of adapting. Join us!
