The Jim Smith Quality Institute (JSQI), a division of S-Squared Enterprises USA Inc, provides the most in-depth and comprehensive training courses available for students preparing for one of the quality certification exams offered by the American Society for Quality® (ASQ).  JSQI was recognized as a prestigious "Best of the Best" in the certification training sector by Worldwide Branding® in March 2016.

Jim Smith is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of JSQI along with Walt Saal, the company's Senior Vice President / Chief Financial Officer.  Jim was elected to the prestigious position of "ASQ Fellow" in 2006 and Walt was recognized as a Senior ASQ Member in 2002.

Offering unparalleled training course content and student examination success rates since 2009, the focus of JSQI has been to provide adult students the best resources possible to prepare for the various certification examinations offered by ASQ on a bi-monthly rotating basis each year.

JSQI preparatory courses are offered to students via a Self-Paced / Instructor-Directed process.  This training method is structured in such a way that students never have to disrupt their normal work or life schedules in order to attend a course offering that only occurs at a set date & time each week.  Historically we have found there has been no difference in the "pass rate" for students choosing this "self-paced" process versa those students who previously attended our "live" courses taught in a classroom setting or via a remote connection.
