An ALL-In-One package for the Quality Management Professionals!

We have now integrated our popular CQA Guide,
CQPA Guide, CSSBB Guide and HACCP Auditor Guide into one single book. 

According to the ASQ, the Certified Quality Auditor (CQA) is a professional who understands the standards and principles of auditing and the auditing techniques of examining, questioning, evaluating, and reporting to determine a quality systemís adequacy and deficiencies.

Quality audit involves the systematic examination of a quality system. The Certified Quality Auditor is responsible for analyzing all elements of a quality system and judging its degree of adherence to the criteria of industrial management and quality evaluation and control systems. He/she has quality audits performed at defined intervals to ensure that the subject institution has clearly-defined internal quality monitoring procedures linked to effective action.

Each CQA certification candidate is required to pass a written examination that consists of multiple-choice questions and case studies that measure comprehension of the BOK. There is a new BOK with only minor changes, which is to be effective after December 2012.

Success factors in the CQA exam =  30% QUALITY CONCEPTS & TOOLS + 70% AUDIT PRACTICE.

We are not talking about the percentage of questions here. We are talking about the success factor - the technical questions on quality management are easy to answer because they are mostly based on factual information. The audit practice questions are different - different answers work best in different scenarios under different conditions (i.e. how you will tackle a situation in a quality audit environment).

There are also plenty of questions on concepts and theories. These are the questions quite closely related to the published objectives of the BOK. They mostly ask for the correct definitions of terms. For example, you will be tested heavily on the difference between First party (internal) audit, Second party (external) audit, and Third party audit. You will also be tested on your understanding of the Deming principles.

According to the ASQ, a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt is an individual who can explain Six Sigma philosophies and principles. A Black Belt can demonstrate team leadership, understand team dynamics and assign team member roles and responsibilities. He/she has a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. He/she is familiar with Lean enterprise concepts, and are able to identify non-value-added elements and activities.

According to the ASQ, a Certified Quality Process Analyst 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.

According to the ASQ, a Certified HACCP Auditor is a professional who understands the standards and principles of auditing a HACCP-based or process-safety system. A HACCP Auditor is capable of using various tools and techniques to examine, question, evaluate and report on that systemís adequacy and deficiencies. He/she is responsible for analyzing all elements of the system and reporting on how well it adheres to the criteria for management and control of process safety.

Our Study Guide goes the expert-advice way. Instead of giving you the hard facts, we give you information that covers the best tricks and practices. With these information, you will always be able to make the most appropriate expert judgment in the exams.
