Updates to the 2017 Recertification Journal

The ASQ Certification Board has made two changes to the Recertification Journal.  Members who are due for recertification in 2017 will be able to claim a new benefit effective April 1, 2017.

Update 1 – Include a new category for ASQ Membership for 1.5 RUs max



Membership Type

Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Category    Maximum
Full  0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs    1.5 RUs
Associate 0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs
Student 0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs 0.5 RUs

  • Note – we will not award RUs for membership of another professional organization.
  • ASQ will verify your membership status and effective dates based on the points claimed – therefore no documentation is required.
  • Partial credit will not be awarded – to claim 0.5 RUs you must have one full year of membership at the time of applying for recertification.

Update 2 – Reduce Category H (Proctoring) from 7 RUs to 5 RUs

Proctoring is no longer available to many of our members due to the introduction of computer-based testing. Members who have amassed 7 RUs can still submit through 2018. 

A new Recertification Journal with these changes is effective April 1, 2017.
