Dr. Albert Tsang briefed the milestone of HKSQ and focused on the relationship between ASQ and us, as well as, the Body of Knowledge (BOK) workshops we provided for ASQ certifications.
The second speaker was Mr. Karson Chui who explained why you need certification. One of objectives is to assess your quality knowledge and skills by yourself or employer. Since the re-certification required every three years with Re-certification Unit (RU) credits requirement, it motivated quality professionals for life time learning.
Then Karson mentioned different types of certifications included Manager of Quality/Organization Excellence, Quality Auditor, Quality Engineer, Master Black Belt, Six Sigma Black Belt, Reliability Engineer, Software Engineer, Pharmaceutical GMP Professional and HACCP Auditor, etc.
Karson also shared his experience on examination that was open book, and most of exams were multiple-choice questions; except CMQOE which required candidates to answer two of three constructed-response (essay) questions apart from multiple-choice questions.
After that Albert demonstrated some real case included ASQ Letter of Congratulations, Wallet Card and Certificate.
During the discussion, many participants concerned how many time needed to prepare and examination passing rate. Albert replied which depended on candidate’s knowledge and familiar to the topic.
The statistics of past SSBB, CQE and CRE examination passing rates were demonstrated and most of them about 50% to 60%. The details showed in the following diagrams.
At the end, Prof. Kit Fai PUN (HKSQ Overseas Representative - The Americas) presented a souvenir to Dr. Albert Tsang.
