“I have recently enrolled in the “Certified Quality Technician (CQT) Prep Online” course that you offer. Your seminars on ASQ’s BOK delivered a clear understandable approach. I was unsuccessful my first attempt at the ASQ CQT exam last March. However, I decided to take this course and touch up on my weak spots in the CQT BOK. I am pleased to inform you that I was successful on my second attempt on writing the ASQ CQT exam and I fully believe your course helped me along the way. I look forward to obtaining more ASQ certifications and I will most definitely take another one of your courses. Keep up the great work, and thank you!!” –Holly P., Quality Coordinator, Ontario, Canada
