CQA Student Planner

  1. Sign up for CQA courses.
  2. Sign up for ASQ’s CQA exam at the American Society for Quality. Purchase The ASQ Auditing Handbook also from ASQ. QualityWBT recommends a timeframe of at least 10 to 14 weeks in order to study for the exam.
  3. Day 1: Enter the class titled “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) I” and read the course instructions. Be sure you are equipped with the proper downloads to take the course.
  4. Day 2 – Day 14: Begin reading The ASQ Auditing Handbook (suggest 2 – 2 1/2 hours of reading per day). Complete “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) I” by Day 14.
  5. Days 15 – Day 30: Enter the class titled “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) II” and read the course instructions. Complete “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) II” by Day 30.
  6. Days 31 – Day 46: Enter the class titled “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) III” and read the course instructions. Complete “Auditing Fundamentals (CQA) III” by Day 46.
  7. Day 46: Finish reading The ASQ Auditing Handbook. Print Desk References and Reviews for all three courses, which you can take into the exam. Test review using online exams. Once you have passed a class, you can go back and take as many tests as you want in order to help you review the material, but note there is only a finite number of questions.
  8. During the 7 days before the exam, continue as above and revisit every page of all three courses to review.
  9. TAKE YOUR EXAM, and complete the course evaluation.

Top Tip!

Use sticky notes to create tabs on your desk reference and The ASQ Auditing Handbook in order to help you find information during the exam.
