If you hold an ASQ certification you must recertify every 3 years to maintain your certification as active, with the following exceptions:

CQI – Certified Quality Inspector

How to Recertify

You may recertify in one of two ways:

  • Obtaining a minimum of 18 recertification units (RUs) during the 3 years following your certification/last recertification, or
  • Re-sit the exam.

You have a 6-month grace period to obtain and submit RUs. If more than 6 months have passed since your certification expired, you MUST re-sit the exam in order to re-certify.

RUs can be earned through a number of activities (click here to see the list) and should be tracked using a Recertification Journal. You may keep a paper journal to submit through the offline process outlined below or an online journal which you may submit electronically through your account at Remember to have your supporting documentation ready when submitting an application to recertify, whether online or offline.

A paper Recertification Journal may also be obtained on request from the ASQ headquarters in Milwaukee.
