    • ASQ Recertification Information FAQ
    • All ASQ certifications (except Quality Inspector, Quality Improvement Associate, Quality Process Analyst, Quality Technician and Six Sigma Green Belt) require Recertification every three years.
    • ASQ members can submit their Recertification journal packets up to six months prior to the certification's expiration date. You may also submit your Recertification journal to your section's Recertification chair up to six (6) months after your certification's expiration date; this is the only "grace period" permitted.
    • To expedite processing, please verify that:
      • You only claimed RUs for activities completed during the 3-yr recertification period (i.e. July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017 for a certification expiring June 30, 2017)
      • You have not claimed RUs for employment in the future (i.e., if you submit your package in April, you canít claim RUs for employment through June)
      • You have not claimed RUs for professional development that has nothing to do with the Body of Knowledge for your certification (i.e., training on submitting Deltek expense reports, completing your annual performance review, etc.)
      • You have provided evidence of the RUs claimed. For example, a seminar cover page with title, date, and provider, table of contents, plus proof of attendance such as a completion certificate, are usually sufficient. If you include an article, paper or presentation, please print double sided, 6 slides per page, etc.)
