Certification is formal recognition by ASQ that an individual has demonstrated proficiency within and a comprehension of a specified body of knowledge at a point in time. It is peer recognition and not registration or licensure. Since 1968, when the first ASQ certification exam was given, more than 85,000 individuals have become certified through ASQ, including many who have attained more than one designation. Although ASQ membership is not a prerequisite for certification, most of the people who hold one of these designations do belong to the Society.
