(Bradenton, Fla., January 16, 2013) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) is offering a virtual course to prepare learners for the American Society for Quality's (ASQ) Certified Quality Improvement Associate certification exam. The course will be held from 6 - 9 p.m., Jan. 28 - March 6, and is available for students who have a high-speed Internet connection. 

The instructor is Bradenton resident Bill Trudell, a Six Sigma Master Black Belt, an international quality consultant and author of “Relentless Improvement: True Stories of Lean Transformations” and “Lean Six Sigma That Works: A Powerful Action Plan for Dramatically Improving Quality, Increasing Speed, and Reducing Waste.”

The $199 fee covers the class, ASQ membership and exam. Normally, the price of the membership and exam alone cost nearly $500.

The program is partially funded by a grant awarded under the President's Community-Based Job Training Grants as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment & Training Administration.

The ASQ certification is targeted at non-quality professionals who wish to show their mastery of the basics of quality. Topics covered include quality basics, teamwork and continuous improvement. The certification is a preferred or required hiring credential for various roles in many industries, including manufacturing, information technology and health care.
