Certified Quality Process Analyst (CQPA)
The Certified Quality Process Analyst (CQPA) is a paraprofessional who, in support of and under the direction of quality engineers or supervisors, analyzes and solves quality problems and is involved in quality improvement projects. A CQPA may be a recent graduate or someone with work experience who wants to demonstrate his or her knowledge of quality tools and processes. Each certification candidate is required to pass an ASQ written and proctored examination that consists of multiple-choice questions that measure comprehension of the CQPA Body of Knowledge.
The CQPA exam is a one-part, 100-question, four-hour exam delivered by ASQ's testing partner, Pyrometric, during the February, April, June, August, October and December "17-day testing windows" which begin the first Friday of each month.
