Course Methodology

This is not an introductory course but one that is intended for those planning to sit for the certified quality manager exam. However, the topics are covered in such sufficient detail so that people with little advanced knowledge of the concepts will be able to master them with practice.

Each topic is presented in a practical, easy to follow manner that emphasizes the practical application of the tools covered. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice tools during the course as well as with optional homework exercises. A comprehensive manual, designed for use as an exam reference book, is provided to each attendee which provides a review of exam topics as well as several sample exams.
